Brief Answer:
I will say monitor again for another week!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for the image. I have reviewed this and this spot is not typical of an infection. For now, I will like that you monitor only so that we can gather more information to say whether it is suggestive of a specific disease condition or not. For this, I will suggest that you monitor for one more week. If it stays same, then we would investigate but should it regress, I will not be worried. Also, did this appear spontaneously or after sex?

I hope to hear back from you!

Brief Answer:
For now, nothing!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

This is probably because of intercourse during the periods of your wife. Be calm and monitor only for now. Only seek further care if this fails to resolve spontaneously. Am not in favor of applying ant cream/soap at this time.

Keep me posted with a follow up image in 5days for review and more insights.

Until next, I wish you a speedy recovery!
