User :   I had unprotected sex about 3 week ago with an ex girlfriend. The night before I went to get my physical done I had sex with my current girlfriend. On the day of the physical I noticed a small white head at the top of my penis, and a couple of red bumps. It never itched or had red areas, burning etc. Now my penis head is very dry. I asked for std s bloodwork but freaked out when I saw the whiethead I have been looking at it a lot and washing it a lot. I m super worried its herpes but hoping to God its not.
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   let me read your query
User :   ok
Doctor :   the presentation of your bumps appears to be benign and not due to herpes or any STD
Doctor :   herpes appears to be in form of multiple vesicles that ruptures to for ulcers , and they are very painful
User :   Well that is def. good news. What could be the cause of the whiteheads?
Doctor :   they can occur during normal epithelial differentiation and growth
Doctor :   and they do tend to subside sooner or later
Doctor :   presence of itching, pain, discharge of any kind can be signs of STDs
Doctor :   since you dont have them, you need not worry at all
User :   ok thank you very much.
Doctor :   You are most welcome
User :   Is the dryness of the penis normal as well? Sorry to bother
Doctor :   that is coz of reduced secretions
Doctor :   unless there is redness and pain, that is fine
Doctor :   apply some KY jelly or any lubricant , like vaseline
Doctor :   this will reduce the dryness
User :   There is no redness. The only redness were the bumps but they are gone. They did not come accompanied with any pain. I only noticed them because I had to urinite in a cup for my physical.
Doctor :   ok ,
Doctor :   In that case, you will be fine
User :   Ok thank you again Doctor. I just was very worried due to th proximity of my indescretion.
Doctor :   I do understand,
User :   I have def. learned my lesson. I will consult with my doctor now that I have a bit more confidance.
Doctor :   now you can relax and not be bothered about this anymore
User :   I was just worried to death of passing it on to someone who I care about and not deserving
User :   Thank you again. Big help
Doctor :   there is no risk of that anymore
Doctor :   you are most welcome
Doctor :   thanks for consulting me here
Doctor :   bye for now
