I understand your concern regarding your skin problem and I hope I am able to help you in the same.
Now from the description alone, it is difficult to make out the exact diagnosis .
I would like to have a look at the exact skin lesions.
Please click some close up pictures of the skin lesions and upload them here on this page .
Also tell if you have been applying any medicines over the area.
Is there any itching or pain?

I am sure I will be able to help you more once you provide me the above details and the pictures

Brief Answer:
Mild fungal infection , will heal with treatment

Detailed Answer:
Hi again

I have seen the attached pictures.
First of all, I would like to tell you that there is really no reason to be worried about.
You just have a mild fungal infection over the glans region. This type of infection is very common in males . It is not a std and it is very easily treatable as well.
You need to apply candid b cream over the affected areas twice a day for ten days.
Do not apply any other cream or oil over it . Keep the affected area clean and dry by washing it with lukewarm saline water twice a day . Dry it properly before applying the medicine .

I am sure this treatment will help you.

Ok thanks.. Is that similer to Fordyce's spots..?? Can i use anticeptic soap to wash genatle area in the future..

Brief Answer:
Fordyce spots, harmless skin swellings

Detailed Answer:
Hi again

Yes you are very right.
You do have a few fordyce spots too along with the mild infection .
You must be aware that these spots are harmless in nature and they tend to naturally occur in certain males . Nothing much can be done about them and they usually just remain over the rim region.
It is always better to use only mild soaps over the genitals since the area is very sensitive . One should avoid using things like dettol or savlon. Preferably a mild soap like dove is good.

Hi there I would like to know, i've done the dettol test a few times now, and it shows positive than i went for a blood test but that shows negative. My friend also did the dettol test and her result did have the same look as mine and she was pregnant, is it that my hormone counting is to low on the blood test that's why it's not showing. Ani
