What do small bumps on below penis shaft indicate? - Online Doctor Chats
4 days ago i started noticing small bumps on my shaft just below my penis head. During then it only had burning sensation. (Something like how an open wound would feel when it touches water) But today the pain has worsen when it rubs against my thighs/pants. The growth looks very small like shiny ball. I am married for over a year. My wife suffers from yeast infection. I was circumcised when i was young. This growth has been stressing me too much that i feel like i am having a fever. I have been searching online for such similar cases. But i cant seem to find anything relevant. What i see is wart, herpes and so on. But none of it looks anything like mine.
Can you describe the lesion in detail?
in detail as in?
i have actually attached pics
I will ask specific questions as the skin lesions can resemble each other
Does the lesion has pus
no it does not
Is it growing near a hair follicle?
no too.. its at the top of the shaft
just before the head
Is it pearly?
You will not be able to attach the photo on the chat
yes very small ball like siny
You can send it at YYYY@YYYY
but skin tone
It can be molluscum
Are you there?
i was sending the pics
It can also be kust candida showing up on you
oh it looks like that?
I got the pics
I can see a cluster of swellings
Are the swellings fluid-filled?
there are only 2 swollen tiny balls
it is a weird lesion
the rest are more like scar from my circumcision
From how long do you have them?
i cant really say if they are fluid filled. cos if i brush against them. it hurts bad
i didnt realise it till yesterday
On first look it seemed like swollen skin glands
Or swollen lymphatics
oh you mean the two tiny balls?
herpes is a remote possibility
but it does not seem to be warts
molluscum is also possible
Thus if it is fluid filled, then the fluid can be sent for microscopic examination and Tzanck test
molluscum usually has an indentation but I cannot see an indentation
These can also be plain cysts
These medicines are available overthe counter
is it something serious?
It does ot seem to be serious
is molluscum painful?
No molluscum are not painnful
That is why I first thought of swollen glands
oh hmm but this hurts.
so only possibility could be genital herpes?
It is possible
But should be confirmed
before coming to the conclusion
will it get bigger if its herpes?
Herpes keeps coming and going
though the lesions may disappear but the virus may still be there
Herpetic lesions can be bigger
Do you have any questions?
Are you there?
Yes you can
Till the time you see a doctor
ok sure i will do that. are there specific brands?
what should i ask the pharmacist
how often should i use it?
In which country do you live?
