Question: Few weeks ago I went to masterbate and felt a small bump from what it appeared to be. It had a hard touch to it. no pain, no itching or tingling to it. It has gotten smaller from applying mupirocin ointment 2% to it I do shave down below and sometimes shave against my hair on the shaft of my penis. I did have sex recently as well. I am concerned and am curious is this genital warts, herepes, hpv?

Brief Answer:
Not herpes or hpv

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query and photograph.
Just relax it's not herpes or hpv.
It is looking like a bacterial infection.
Keep applying mupirocine twice daily for a week, you will get response with that.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.

Brief Answer:
All warts caused by HPV

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the follow up.
Genital wart is considered as std but the route of transmission may vary.
It can even get transmitted from infected public toilet seats.
Warts in other parts of body are not considered as std.
All the Warts are due to HPV but the strain varies. Different strains cause wart in different parts of body.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.

Hi sorry to bother I am a 26 year old female and I have just noticed this hickie looking mark on my inner thigh. I have no idea where it came from and I just noticed it so it has to have only been there a day or 2 at most. It does not itch, hurt, and it has a flat normal skin feeling surface. I just now put a cream I have on it mupirocin 2%. I ve never had anything like this before and no other spots on my body. Thank you

use of mupirocin ointment nasally
I am having I spinal fusion in the morning and was instructed to use mupirocin nasally prior to arrival. the mupirocin I received from the pharmacy is 2% ointment when I read the internal literature it said not to use in the nose but that there are nasal forms of the medicine. I think I tecieved the wrong stuff from the pharmacy that being said. should I still use it or wait and see what the doctor would like to do in the morning?

Can anything be done to get rid of crusty spots in my nostrils ? They are not sore and do not bleed, but they won't go away. My ENT doctor gave me Mupirocin ointment,, and I used it nightly for weeks on end finally giving up as it did nothing. My complaint with him was that had lost my sense of smell a couple of years ago. I cannot smell good or bad odors. After I had a nasal X-ray, he told me that my sinus passages were clear, and no infection. I have used over many years a OTC Nasal spray, and wondered if that has damaged my sense of smell ? I I live alone and have to triple check myself to make sure the gas jets on my stove are off. The Dr. said it would come back, but it is now 6 months later and still not a thing !Sue Cadman

I have a painful belly button. There is also a brownish discharge that takes about three hours to refill the cavity after cleaning it out. The discharge is extremely smelly and resembles a fecal odor. I also experience pain when the area around the belly button is palpated, primarily directly below. Two sores are now apparent in the cavity but were not there a week ago when the symptoms first appeared. The amount of discharge has been constant regardless of the presence of the sores. I do not have a fever. I've seen two doctors about this condition. One prescribed a topical cream called Mupirocin Ointment. The next prescribed an antibiotic pill called Sulfamethoxazole. Both have been ineffective at relieving any of the symptoms.
