What causes a whitehead pimple on penis?
Does not exactly sound like an STD, but need some more information
Hello sir and welcome.
Thank you for writing to us.
I have gone through your query and attached images with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help. It is a good thing that you have not sexual contact off late, but could you also respond to the following questions which will help to better understand your situation:
+Have you masturbated some time prior to the appearance of the sore or appearance? If yes, then was it vigorous? Was it with or without a lubricant?
+How would you rate your level of hygiene on a scale of 0 to 5? 0 being poor and 5 being extremely careful
+Is it hot in Angola? Do you sweat in the groin regions often?
+Any itching or rubbing or any other vigorous activity some time prior to the appearance of the presentation?
I hope you find my response helpful. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications, I would be more than happy to help.
Yes, i maturbate most evenings, it was without lubricant and i would not say it was vigorous.
I am extremely careful, i run almost everyday and shower as soon as i finish.
Yes it is hot here and i often sweat in the groin area in my room.
No itching or rubbing prior to the appearance
A few suggestions, observe and report back in 3 days time
Hello once again sir and thank you for your response.
I have the following recommendations:
+Stop masturbating for a while, you will have to practise some amount of self-control until you get better, I shall let you know when it is safe to do so again
+Apply a warm compress over the region from on top of your clothes several times a day, this is very important
+Use epsom salt in your bath water and take sitz baths several times a day
+Try to change your inner wear regularly, always carry an extra
+Try to keep the region clean and dry at all times
+Avoid jogging and any other activity that can result in friction and further irritation to the region
Observe if you experience any changes/improvement. Please keep in touch with me and write back to me for any further clarifications, I am always here to help.
Good news, continue with the warm compress
The causes could be:
+Friction from dry masturbation (location most likely to be due to sexual activity or masturbation wound)
+Wound from friction wound getting becoming infected
Diagnosis would be an abscess due to non-lubricated vigorous activity around the glans penis
It is a very common condition, and the simple use of antibiotic cream (e.g. neomycin) should help; but it is also routine to rule out STD's, so just go about an STD-panel for our satisfaction.
Let the pus leak out, continue with the warm compress that I advised, and you should be fine soon. Keep in touch sir.
