Hi,

Welcome to Health Care Magic.

I am Dr.Muhammad Ahmad, I have read your question in detail, I understand your concern and will try to help you in the best possible way.

In order to help you better , I would like you to give me some more information,

I will here by ask you some relevant questions to fill up the information gap.


I Have seen the picture, I want to assure you that this does not seem to be any thing dangerous.

This is a swelling formed by most probably an infection in a hair follicle of some hair present.

You should avoid scratching it and keep good hygiene at the place.

I would also suggest such patients of mine to use some ointment like polyfax and gentamicine cream , this shows good results.

I would suggest you not to panic things will get better soon. This isn't an alarming issue.




Waiting for your input

Awesome thank you doctor. One last thing, do you think it is mollescum? I have 2 XXXXXXX mollescum warts on my penis and it may have spread to my sac? I am currently using cream for those so should I use the same cream for this new one? I am not sure but if it is not dangerous I will let it blow over. Thank you.

Brief Answer:
There are few things we need to make clear

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for writing back,

Molluscum usually has a punctum on its tip which i can't see in it,

And molluscum is usually painless , do you have pain in this or not?

I would like to know which cream are you using for it,

molluscum usually comes with many different morphologies but molluscum in sameperson usually looks like same ,,, to me it doesn;t look like molluscum but do you think its same as the ones you have on penis?

If yes then we can suspect it to be molluscum , but having no pain, having punctum on it and it being same as others is what we need to know..

Regards

Dr.Muhammad Ahmad
