What causes small raised bumps near the base of penis?
This has all happened in the past 3 days.
My main question now is how to care for this now?
Should I wash it daily? Soap and water? just keep it dry?
Should I use antibiotic cream or hydrocortisone cream or A&D cream or nothing?
Should I leave it open or attempt a band aid?
What should I anticipate for a heal time on something like this?
Combination cream with antifungal,antibacterial & corticosteroid.
Thank you for asking HCM.
I have gone through your query. Avoid using soaps and irritants for washing. Instead you can used saline or warm water. After wiping applying ointments or creams with combination of anti bacterial, antifungal and corticosteroid will be helpful.
Don't use band aid. You can put a soft gauze piece. Also use loose under wear. No need to wash repeatedly if wound is clean. You can irrigate or gently wash with saline if any sluff is there.
Hope this may help you. Let me know if anything not clear.
I am having trouble finding an over the counter with the combination of antibacterial, anti fungal, and the corticosteroid? Is there a specific product you recommend or can prescribe to me?
Thank you so much for your attentiveness in addressing my questions, very much appreciated, this has been a bit of a traumatic experience for me
As its improving you give some time.
Hi and welcome.
Thank you for your follow up query.
You can give some time as it is improving. Most likely its a sign of healing.
Over the counter multiaction creams will be available in medical shops (pharmacy). You can ask in your pharmacy. It can be one with combination of clotrimazole , betamethasone and neomycin or with miconazole , hydrocortisone and neoycin. Several brands like Daktarin is available.
Let me know if anything not clear. I am happy to help you.
