There is no itch or painful sensation where the bumps are. It feels normal to touch. It does not hurt / burn when i pee. From reading online about the possible conditions i have been taking 1000mg Lysine (1 pill a day) and Echinacea 750mg (2 pills twice a day). This has been the same way since the beginning of the month. It hasnt changeed in size but it may have spread just a little more - very small area(too small to see in pictures)
There was this one time i couldnt take a shower the same day, i noticed a bad smell coming from my penis. This was not usual. I skipped a shower on purpose again and the same smell. And no, this is not because i just didnt take a shower. it was just a foul smell. never smelt it before.
This occured 1 week after having unprotected sex. Could it be an std?
Will this go away on its own? do i need to continue taking the supplements?
