My penis is oozing white puss and it is turning black

Friend has a penis that is turning a black color in spots and he has white puss oozing from bumps on the sides. He just quit drinking, of which he was a major alcoholic, and coke, and/or crack addict. He has been sober since, jan. 1st, as far as we know. He said he has no family history of this, and is only 44 years old. I have seen an alcoholics nose turn a blackened color and am wondering if this could have anything to do, with this abnormality. He said his Doctor has never seen anything like this before and are clueless of what to do for him.

Hi,
From your history it is not clear that pus is coming out from scrotal sac or from glans penis or from penis where urine come out.
Causes,investigations and treatment can be done afterward.
If pus is from scrotal sac and there is itching,is likely infection present with fungal infection
If pus is from glans penis he might have poor local hygiene and there is collection of smegma and therefoere belano prostitis infection is likely.
If pus is from penile urethra there may be infection in urine or due to some sexual transmitted disease.
So he should consult sexologist and seek his advise.

Hi Jeffery;

welcome to HealthcareMagic

The change of color of penis can be due to hyper pigmentation also but the main thing he should worry about is the puss coming out of penis.The pus is a sign of infection which can happen as a result of sexually transmitted infection.Please ask him if he has had unprotected sex before this infection.In any case he wil require examination by a doctor to see why the skin color is changed and antibiotic treatment to cure the infection ;tell him to consult ASAP.

Thanks

Hi. This time last week I have noticed white/yellow puss coming out of the top of my penis when I squeezing it out. I know this is a urethral infection. I have no other symptoms other than small pain when I pee, which developed within 2 days after initial self diagnosis. The pain has decreased a little and the pus has become more watery and is slowly oozing out on its own. It is little irritablness in the urethral shaft now. My boyfriend said it ll go away in a week or so as he had the same thing years ago. I believe it is slowly going away but not as fast as i want it to. Is there anything I should do or any medication I can go get from the chemist?

Ive had a small white pimple on my penis for about a week but continued masturbating each night anyways. 2 nights ago it turned into a bigger bump, then bigger last night. Its a little bigger than a BB but not quite as large as a pea and its a shiny skin color and painful. The problem seems to be under the skin. Today i woke up and its a little larger and there are 2 decent sized black spots on the bump now, looking kind of like spider bite marks. There is an older pimple looking thing near that bump thats flat and white with a smaller black dot in the middle and has been there nearly 2 months. Both bumps are in the middle of my shaft, too far up to be ingrown hairs. The newer bump looked pretty similar to the older one when it first appeared and masturbation didnt effect the first one and the second definitely seems to be something different right from the start. What might these be and what can i do on my own to help get rid of them? Is this something that requires a doctors attention?

About 1-2 weeks ago i noticed a bump at the bottom of the shaft of my penis right where it starts to get hairy. The bump looked like a bug bite or an ingrown hair . it had fluid in it so i popped the bump and kind of a white to clear fluid came out. It scabbed up kind of like a blackish scab. A few days later another bump formed on the shaft of my penis and is also scabbed over now with a black scab. Just yesterday about 2 more tiny bumps appeared. one popped like a pimple looking puss and the other too small to pop. the one is now scabbed also with a blackish lookin scab. They dont really hurt or itch or anything unless you mess with the scab then it hurts just like picking a scab for a scraped knee or something. Im curious if this is an std or what. I havent been tested for a couple months but now im going to go soon, but would still like to hear some input. Also when the first bump started to form I was sick from like a cough and mucus and sore throat didn t know if it was related.

Our 31 year son has thoracic back issues. He is an addict, alcoholic and liar. He has been through rehab twice. At age 14 and again in his early 20 s. He is on MS contin prescribed by a pain doctor in Austin, TX. We just read the web information on MSContin and believe he should not be prescribed this medication as an addict. He is also a patient with MHMR. We believe he needs a dual diagnosis. Mental and Substance Abuse. Are there rehab centers that work with patients with no insurance with a dual diagnosis? He does not have a job. He got his TXDL back yesterday after a 180 day suspension for DUI. He still has not gone before the judge due to lawyer extensions. His biological father paid an attorney $2500 to represent him in court. The lawyer keeps putting extensions due to his schedule. The first court date was December. The second date was January and has now been pushed to February. We are concerned that his mentally ability combined with substance abuse (even though legally prescribed) keeps him from functioning. Do we stand to the side and watch the fall? Do we attempt to find a dual diagnosis treatment facility and try and get him on the new health care system (Obama Care)? We see the gravity of the situation and need guidance. If you can discuss dual diagnosis treatment facilities and the likelihood of Obama care paying for rehab? Thanks,
