I have had the spot for about three to four days.

It is painless and it has a shine to it if it is looked at the right angle looks flat like it was caused by friction.

I do masterbate frequently.

Ive only had two partners and i am 26 years old,
And ive had unprotected sex with both.

I do not have any systemic disorders that i know about

Do you mean polmyxin ointment?

Is that for bacterial infections?

Ive noticed one of my fingernails has become somewhat pitted, do you think that is related?

Detailed Answer:
Yes dear

* Polymyxin ointment containing polymyxin , neomycin and bacitracin works by
stopping growth of bacteria over the surface .

* Finger nail pitting may be somewhat clubbing from iron deficiency , co related
infection or others .

Kindly upload fingernail photo if possible .
