Customer Question

I am an uncircumcised male and within the last week I received protected oral sex from a parlor worker. I believe the act was always performed on top of the latex, but am not sure if any saliva or direct lip contact had slide to my penis shaft.I have also consistently had issues with balanitis. My question is if you believe the attached picture is consistent with balanitis, an STI or another skin issue.Thank you.

Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

I understand your anxiety regarding this lesion.

THis is likely an inflamed hair follicle or oil gland.

Balanitis will affect the glans penis not near the base of the penis.

And no sti will appear like this.

Herpes causes groups of blisters.

Syphilis causes hard painless chancre like ulceration.

HIV does not cause this type of manifestation.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
