Hi Harryog
Welcome to healthcare Magic!
You are probably having a local irritation or an infection.
I think you should get a local examination and get a local swab for gram stain and culture.
The source of irritation can be caused by a built up of local secretions called smegma so you should retract the fore skin and clean the secretions with soap and water every alternate day for a fortnight. If your problem does not subside then probably you need to be examined by a local physician and get antibiotic course prescribed, the regimen your clinician would know.
Wish you a great health!

I do not have secretions as clean regularly anyway so perhaps you might suggest an antibiotic cream or is it possibly fungal

Hi harruog,
Welcome back to Healthcare Magic Physician's Desk!
You should get the culture of the local swab and start applying antibacterial and antifungal cream( Cream Neosporin) twice a day.
You should get relief within 15days if not then you need to get examined again.
Wish you a great health!

I am a 22,male .Actually i got a bump on my skin of penis towards the base. Then it increased in size for 4 -5 mm and become red and then ruptured with 5-6 drops of blood. I washed it with shavlon and applied neosporin ointment . but today after 2days i found the skin of scrotum just below that wound became redish ( i can see very few blood within skin) and senitive also . I think it to be some liquid or blood accumulation. I am getting scared , what should i do now.

My name is Ric and I'm a 20 year old male. I never really had a huge problem with acne until recently. The acne isn't like typical acne I've had before they are slightly more swollen and more painful. I keep from picking at them but when they eventually pop they drain a yellowish pus and take an extremely long time to heal even with the application of Neosporin and other facial cleanser products. After I wipe off the Neosporin or whichever product I may have on my face there is a swollen yellow head on the abscess but not because there is pressure or puss under it it's just like a raw cap over it that will not pop or wipe off with a towel. I also have three lymph nodes on the right side of my neck/jawline that have hardened to slightly smaller than pea size. That also seems to be where the breakout gets the worst is right on the corner of the mandible. Again, the sores stay raw and drain for 3-4 days and do not heal as fast as they should. A lot of the hair follicles on my face are getting infected too. Any idea as to what is going on?

Hello, My 8 month old son s big toenail is split pretty far down toward the middle. I clipped some of it off so it wouldn t get caught on anything. I also applied Neosporin to it before putting his sock on. Is there anything else I should be doing? He is a big time crawler and climber. I think he must of snagged his nail doing one of these things. Thanks for the help!
