Hello. Thank you for writing to us

I am dr.kakkar (dermatologist and venereologist ). I have gone through your query and I have viewed the images.

I can see multiple raised lesions. They are probably fluid filled.
I request you to upload a few more images in better light so that I am able to visualize them better.
I would like to know the duration since you noticed them?
Do you have any symptoms like pain?burning? Itching?
Are you sexually active?

The camera isn't great, I'm afraid.
I noticed them maybe yesterday. No pain, no burning, no itchiness.
Yes, I'm sexually active.

Brief Answer:
Possibility of genital molluscum contagiosum

Detailed Answer:
Thank you. I have viewed the Images

I can make out a few dome shaped lesions though the images are not very clear.
I would keep a possibility of Genital Molluscum Contagiosum which presents as pearly white, dome shaped, umblicated lesions, asymptomatic lesions.
It is an infection caused by molluscum contagiosum virus. The infection is transmitted through skin to skin contact during sexual intercourse.

Brief Answer:
Treatment options for genital molluscum

Detailed Answer:
Hi.

Molluscum are clinically distinctive and the diagnosis is clear cut on clinical examination of patient. The lesions are dome shaped, asymptomatic, pearly white lesions with a central dent which is very characteristic of molluscum lesions.
Treatment for molluscum is with either electrofulguration or with needle extraction of molluscum bodies. A doctor would do it for you.

And that is necessary? All the information I can find say they're harmless and will just fade over time. But you're saying they need active treatment?

Are there any actions I need to take, or avoid taking?

For how long are they contagious? Assuming they still are.

Thank you.

Brief Answer:
Molluscum Contagiosum

Detailed Answer:
Hello.

Genital molluscum may increase in number. Shaving pubuc hair can encourage spread to surrounding skin. Molluscum might reduce or disappear over time but this time period is often very long and most individuals prefer some form of active treatment.
They can be passed on to your sexual partners through skin to skin contact during intercourse. They are contagious as long as they are there.

I recently had unprotected intercourse with a female partner, the next morning I had slight tingle/irritating sensation inside the tip of my penis nothing too painful and it dose not hurt to urinate or ejaculate. Over the past 3 days I went and go tested to STDs and am awaiting results during this time I have developed lower abdominal pain (near the bladder) as well as sore and tender testicles I m not sure what this could be as I have not visible sore on my genitals or discharge.

Hi Dr. Dilip Raja,

I am a 23 year old, sexually active male. I have had a history of fungal infections (jock itch, infected toes, etc) all over my body. About 3 months ago I started having severe pain on the tip of my penis that worsened after urination, ejaculation and chaffing. I was tested for all STDs at 2 months and 4 months after possible exposure and everything came up negative. I was put on 2 months worth of antibiotics which did nothing to improve my condition. Recently the pain at the tip has gone away but there is now a small line (indentation) along the base of the head of the penis which is the source of the discomfort. It is greatly affecting my sex life. I hope you can help.

hello i have pain after urination, weak urine stream and trouble releasing all urine from bladder. also feel some stillin tubes. slight pain during ejaculation. burning worse at night but starting to be more frequent threw day. had this about 3 weeks with bad burning so i went in after 3 weeks of trying to drink lots of water bc i thought it was a urinary track infection since my wife gets them alot. after 3 weeks wheni took pee test i was tested postitive for clamitia, but my wife who i had unprotected sex with the whole 3 weeks with symtoms came out negative for everythiig and got full paps and swab done, when i returned for 2nd test after meds i could alrdy feel it comeing back, but test came up negative for all stds. whats wrong? its becomeing more difficult to pass urine, more frequent burning the burning is like it pulsates from groin area when it does burn not a steady burn. it can hurt more when flexing that area or moving postions in bed. 26 years old 6 foot 140p ptsd and depression from iraq
