Brief Answer: Antibiotic for infection is required Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for posting your query on XXXXXXX A lump on base of penis can be due to a number of causes. Presence of pus in the lump suggests a bacterial or pyogenic infection. Since, the pubic area is rich in hair, inflammation of the hair follicles is common. It could be due to skin infection like boil etc. However, a clinical examination of the lesion is necessary to know the character of the lesion. Release of pus indicates bacterial infection so a course of antibiotics is suggested. You can consult your local doctor for prescription of antibiotics. If you have more queries, I will be glad to answer. Dr Shailja P Wahal
