Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
Thank you for requesting me. Is it possible to forward a photograph? You can do so by clicking on the paper clip icon and uploading.
Do the pimples have pus in them?
Which part of the penis do you have pimples?
One possibility is Molluscum Contagiosum. Since you are not able to provide a picture, I would suggest that you check a few pictures on the internet and see if that fits. Then get back to me. This does not sound like a typical yeast infection.
Any symptoms? as your girl firend's problem but diagnosed by a physician as a yeast infection? Was testing done?
This seems most likely to be a folliculitis which we physicians are seeing more of as men are beginning to shave in this area. I would recommend washgint the area with Hibiclens 4% was once a day. Be sure to rinse off well. Then apply Benzoyl Peroxide 10 to the pimples. The only other thin I can think of would be herpes simplex, but I would be very reluctant to make that diagnosis without a culture, never mind without the visualization a picture could provide.
I have to go to my office now, but will be happy to entertain further questions. If you would like me to OPT OUT to allow other answers, please let me know.
You are very welcome. Good luck.
