Brief Answer:
Sebaceous cysts-no active intervention required

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for posting on HCM.
From your description its difficult to point of specific diagnosis unless a proper examination is done.
I think the 'white pimple-like' lesions you mentioned, must be sebaceous cysts.These cysts are pretty common over scrotum as it is rich in sebaceous glands i.e oil producing glands of body and sometimes due to some blockage in the duct cysts are formed.
Sebaceous cysts are benign and usually donot warrant any active treatment unless and untill it is bothersome because of size or secondary infection.
For large cysts or cysts with infection (painful/purulent or bloody discharge etc), then the best option is surgical removal by a qualified dermatologist or surgeon.

These cysts has nothing to do with the decrease in your semen volume or excessive masturbation.

Kindly get checked from a qualified urologist for the problem regarding semen volume.

Maintain hygiene and avoid tight undergarments.

Hope this will take care of your issue.

Let me know if you require any more assistance from my side.

Thank you

Hi, I'm male, 30 yrs old and recently had unprotected sex with a girl i don't really know. As soon as the next day I noticed that my penis head was blotchy and red but without any pain or itching. There are no sores or blisters. This was now 4 days ago and there has been very litlle to no change in the symptoms. I have showered a couple of times and not used any creams or lotions. All the research I have done online suggests that it is very unlikely that these are the symptoms of a sexually transmitted disease but I am still very worried that I may have caught something, especially as I would not want to infect anyone else. Please help!

I have been experiencing cold-like symptoms for the last few days. My father had the same symptoms and was better after four or so days. Today, however, I noticed that my stool color was a clayish white accompanied with moderate abdominal pain on my right side. Is this cause for concern?

Additional information. I have been drinking plenty of fluids (water and gatorade with the occasional soda) and haven't had any dietary changes. I have been taking vitamin C tablets, Sudafed, and Nyquil. I was in the Bahamas three weeks ago. I have had intercourse with only my girlfriend in the last year, prior to I had been tested for hepatitis and other STDs, all of which came back negative. I also chew tobacco regularly.

Hi. I am a 20 year old female. I was recently treated for a UTI which lead me to have a yeast infection. I since have been treated for both. I was also tested for STDs, as I am very afraid of them- twice. All results were negative both times. I am still having a burning sensation however and having some pain on the left side close to where the back side of the pelvis bone is if that makes sense. I never get this pain on my right side and it more of a dull, throbbing pain. The doctor said my lymph nodes were fine and I'm going to get checked again next week- just wondering if you had any ideas?
