Customer Question

Hi so just now I noticed this red looking rash on my penis, as well as many red bumps that almost look like little red pimples all over my penis as well. I have had unprotected sex with this girl in my pool and with the same girl we do have very rough sex. I have no pain no swollen lymph nodes by my groin that I can tell doesn't burn or hurt when I use the bathroom. I have been sneezing a little bit and a little warm but I don't think that's anything, my back is alittle achie but I have herniated disks

Thank you very much for the information provided and the photo images.

Your condition is very much indicative of an irritant contact dermatitis.

This condition can occur due to friction.

It is not herpes , warts or any other STD for sure.

Did you wear a condom ?

Was there a lot of friction on the area?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No condom.and yes a lot of friction both times espically in the pool
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.

Thank you very much for the information provided.

This condition looks like an irritant contact dermatitis. This is a benign and harmless condition . It is not related to any STD nor is it contagious

There is nothing to worry and mostly it resolves on its own.

You can apply Bacitracin ointment along with Cortaid ointment on the area twice a day for 10 days to heal it faster.

Do you Agree with what I have mentioned?

Do you want me to release the application for the rating service?

Does this condition spark swollen lymph nodes? Because my left is swollen and hurts
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.

Yes , if the inflammation is a lot it can cause the lymph nodes to swell. The irritation causes the immune system to react and is carried away to the nearest lymph nodes.

So yes , it can cause the swelling.

You can take over the counter Calpol to reduce the inflammation.

Regards

Dr Pravin
