Thank you very much for the photos sent. It is a bit confusing from the photo that you have sent.

I would like some more information :

Is there any blister fluid coming out from this area?

Did you dry masturbate or did you put some lubricant ?

Have you done the herpes blood test in your STD panel ?

I did throw alcohol on it n it burned
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 8 months ago.

Thank you so much for the information provided.

There is no sign of STD nor is there any sign of herpes on the area.

There is nothing to worry .

It is just swollen sebaceous ectopic glands which are irritated due to the masturbation.

Thank you very much for your reply.

It definitely does not look like herpes . Neither are you symptoms suggestive of the same.

I would strongly recommend you do blood test to just rule out herpes so you can a definite answer.

Do let me know if you have any further queries.
