What causes recurring bumps on penis?
If you do not mind me asking a few questions to better understand sir
Hello sir and welcome.
Thank you for writing to us.
I have gone through your query and attached image and would like you to know that I am here to help. If you do not mind me asking a few questions, I would really appreciate your kind response to each one of them sir.
+ Are you married?
+ Have you ever had sexual contact with a woman? If yes, how many?
+ Do you masturbate and how often do you masturbate? If you do, then do you use a lubricant?
+ Have you ever undergone an STD-panel?
+ Have you ever had unsafe sexual contact sir?
I guarantee complete privacy, and would greatly appreciate your honesty. I look forward to hearing to you in order to help you further.
Yes, sex with about 20 women in my lifetime.
I masturbate but not much anymore because I was losing sensation in my shaft area once I'd have intercourse. But I used lotions and petroleum jelly.
I have been checked for std as recently as 2014.
Yes I have had unprotected sex.
Suggestions listed sir
Hello sir and thank you so much for that information.
The following are my suggestions sir:
+ Get an elaborate STD-panel (including herpes, syphilis, gonorrhea, HPV, HIV, chlamydia) conducted while these lesions are present, as this would be the best time to check for STDs, as your symptoms are present. If STDs are ruled out then the issue is much simpler
+ If at all the lesion recurs on the exact same region, then this may require surgical attention (e.g. incision and drainage of the cysts)
+ You said you have been losing sensation around the shaft region? This does also raise doubt for either an STD or conditions like diabetes or a nutrient deficiency (e.g. vitamin B 12 deficiency)
+ Keep the region dry and clean at all times
+ Take regular showers
+ Avoid masturbation without a lubricant and avoid rough or aggressive masturbation
+ Once STDs are completely ruled out, I would think that starting a course of antibiotics may help
+ Apply a warm compress to the region
+ Avoid sexual contact until the STD-panel returns a clean result
I hope you find my response both helpful and informative. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications, I am always here to help.
