Posted on Thu, 7 Jan 2016
Question: The area behind the head of my penis appears to be raw, stings a bit along with itching. Tonight, I noticed a pus like film around the area. No discharge from the tip of the penis. Not sure if I got abrasions from something at work (construction, concrete dust everywhere) or something else is going on. I have had intercourse, generally protected however, the last time (maybe 2 weeks ago) the condom came off at some point......... worried, I think so.......

Brief Answer:
Fordyce spots self resolves

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for asking

I read your question and I understand your concern. These are clogged sebaceous pores secondary to friction during coitus or any self touching pleasures.

Just maintain a good hygiene wear loose undergarments and apply topical hydrocortisone. Don't pop pick or poke the bumps. Those self resolve.

I hope it helps. Consult your doctor as our advice is just for education purposes only.
