I have a small red circumscribed patch on the glans of my penis for 3 weeks now.  I had no pain, no blisters no itchiness and no generalized symptoms.

Red Patch on Penis: A red patch on the head of the penis can arise for several reasons. If you are not circumcised, this could be inflammation, called balanitis. Steroid creams help. If you have started any new meds, it could be a fixed drug eruption. Stopping the meds helps, but it is a harmless event. If it is growing in size and doesn't respond to the above in a week or two, i recommend a urological evaluation. ...Read more

You : You should have this examined by your primary care doctor and - if they think you need a specialist evaluation - possibly by a urologist. It may be that you have inflammation or infection in the foreskin, and that can lead to difficult pulling back the foreskin, a condition called phimosis. A red lesion on the foreskin or head of the penis could potentially be something more concerning like bowens' disease of the penis, so you should have it inspected. ...Read more

I have red itchy bumps on my pubic area im real worried but they don't seem to be an STD they look more like boils and there on my penis i just started using antibiotic cream and they dry out what should I do

It : It sounds like they are responding to the antibiotic cream, however that may not be enough. You are likely dealing with abscesses or boils. Did you recently shave? This is a common precursor to infection. Please visit your doctor because std'd still need to be ruled out. If it is bacterial your doctor may put you on oral antibiotics. It is always best to have a doctor examine you in these types of instances. Good luck. ...Read more
