Customer Question

Hi, recently i noticed a small white spot on penis. I had unprotected sex about 5 days ago, and am wondering if i may have contracted something? This could have been there before but i have never looked

There is no pain whatsoever, and there is another very small spot near it which i took a photo of yesterday, but it seems to have gone.

i only noticed after sexual intercourse but ive never really looked before so they could have been there before and i was just unaware.

Thank you very much for the reply.

The look more like smegma which is nothing but a normal collection of the mucous of the glans penis.

Can you touch these growths with your finger? Do you feel them as small stubs or do they feel like they are at level with the skin.

Do they come off or can they be scratched out?

I can touch them it but i cant wipe it off, it seems to stick. It sticks up a little, but not much, i think
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I just tried wiping it off and you cant, but it also barely sticks up at all, like i can barely even feel anything

Do you have apple cider vinegar with you at home?

Do you have a doctor who can do a cryofreezing for you?

The history and the photos do indicate that these growths need attention as they are white fleshy and they stick up like fingers and you CANNOT wipe them off . One of the above mentioned techniques will help.

I will go to the doctor next week then, what would you say they are though?
