Question: I have a pimple on my penis and when I squeeze it white thing comes out but it's still solid? It's not STD because I don't have sex could it be a hair growing under the skin? I tried to pinch it with a sterilized needle but only a blood drop came out?

Brief Answer: It looks healed. Don't worry Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for consulting HealthcareMagic! Based on the description you have given, I think that it should have been folliculitis- which is a minor infection usually occurring in the region surrounding hair follicle. However, after seeing the picture you have attached, it looks like it is healed and I do not think that you need to worry about it. Just try to avoid pinching it and maintain the are hygienic and try to avoid over sweating. Anyhow, if it has pus kind of thing again, let us know. Hope I have answered your query.

I have red inflamed spots all over my legs in almost every hair follicle. I have been told it is folliculitis but the ointment the Dr has given me has not done anything. I am wondering if it could be a fungal issue that an over the counter product like lotrimin may help. =-
