Question: Hi,
I am 21 vet sexually active male. I recently had protected sex a week ago and a few days after I noticed skin colored bumps I would say about 10 of them at the base of my shaft going toward the genitles. They do not hurt or itch. I also noticed dry peeling skin. What could this be?

Hi
Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day

Dear XXXX

The bumps are papules are likely to be inspissated secretion due to sweating . They are likely to be normal. Exact diagnosis will depend on clinical examination . I would suggest you to send me clinical photograph for further assessment. I would also require following additional information

1. Details of sexual encounter
2. Are you experiencing any other local symptoms like Urinary complaints, discharge

Awaiting your response

Take Care

The first picture shows the dry skin and bumps and the second one shows the bumps i am worried about. I am a very avid gym goer.

In regards to my most recent sexual encounter it was protected, i did not finish. She was a clean female and has not said anything to me up to this day. I do not notice any other issues. I was worried it was an std

Brief Answer:
They are normally present

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Dear Sir

Thanks for providing the clinical picture. It is definitely not any STD. It is normal occurrence. These papules are seen in 40 % of normal individuals and are prominent hair follicles with inspissated sebum. There is absolutely no need to be worried about.

Rest be assured.
Wishing you great health.

Best Regards
Dr Deepak

My pcp checked me for hernia last week then referred me to a surgeon. I had hernia surgery 2yrs ago, where the surgeon used mesh to repair the hernia. My pain is on the same side as my first hernia. The surgeon checked me today and felt there was no hernia, and ordered a ct scan in avfew days. He seemed concerned though with my pain and it's location. The pain is directly over my first surgery site, it's deep and aching and travels down in my right testicle. I feel very nevous about what it could be, if it's not hernia. Are there any concerns of a mass or tumor or cancer? Is that why he ordered a ct scan? Also I've had 2 spinal fusions L4-S1 and a spinal stimulator implant in the last 3yrs. Any chance this issue could be related to my back issue? I'm 33yrs old... My apologies for all questions, but I'm concerned this is something more serious than what I thought...

For the past 2 plus years I have had a flat red rash that starts on my neck and works it s way around the whole of my neck. It becomes hot, sore, and can be there for days. When it does go down I can pull little bits of skin off - a bit like sunburn . It s appearance looks a bit like I have been burnt. The skin can become taught. It can come and go on it s own accord. It normally starts when I feel my neck tingleing and some timed it can be itchy - quite itchy when it s completely around the whole of my neck. The doctors haven t been able to advise what it is and just tell me to moisturise it.
