hiii.thanks for using healthcare magic.
you are having folliculitis.my opinion is that,
1.dont squeeze the lesion.
2.apply antibiotic cream like fusiderm cream twice daily on the area for 7 days.
3.take levocetrizine tablets twice daily for 7 days, if the lesion itches.
4.take analgesics like ibuprofen twice daily for 7 days for pain.
5.maintain proper hygiene in that area.
hope my answer would have helped you.

I have a small bump right below the head of my penis. It s skin color and looks a little whiter. It s fairly hard. I had genital warts 4 or 5 years ago. No outbreaks since. This also appeared after using astroglide with my girlfriend for the first time or I noticed it after. Could using lube cause something like this?
