Posted on Tue, 17 May 2016
Question: Thank you. My boyfriend sent me a picture of his penis the day after we had unprotected sex. (is there a way to send you this?) Basicaly, he had a bunch of little white head things on the head of his penis. he said didn't hurt or itch and in 2 days went from reddish to gone. We didn't worry a whole lot about them until about a week later when we had sex again, the same thing happened. It looking at online pictures it doesn't really look or act like anything I've run in to. Thank you very much for any ideas of what it might be or from.

Brief Answer:
Seen the picture. Suggestions

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
I have seen the picture.
I think it is a infection.
This is possibly trichomonas related infection or early stage of candidiasis.
Both organisms are normal flora of females and males frequently get the infection after intercourse.
I suggest a course of antibiotics doxycycline.
Meet a local practitioner for the prescription.
Best of luck. Dr Mittal
