Noticed on Monday been treating with Tea tree oil and, touched vinegar to it at first after moving skin and seeing if it was a pimple, because I have been showering every few days or everyday but sleeping in my car for months and threw the winter stick in pants nearly always. What is this. Should I be worried? Is my penis this wrinkled from absorbing the alpha hydrox lotion or from Apple cider vinager or from the tea tree oil?I touched the spot with vinager and there was no color changes .. I have not been sexually active. I have been stressed out and dirty living in my car for 5 months dealing with a breakup and working construction everyday.

Should I be using cortaid or antibiotic ointment? Cortisone cream? I'm having trouble to stop worrying.

Just downloading the pictures now. Will be with you in 2 mins

Expert:  Dr. S. Attili replied 8 months ago.

ok. Thank you for your patience. I have seen the pictures. Your glans does appear wrinkled. Has it always been like that? Why did you apply apple cider/ tea tree oil. Was there a problem to start with that you were trying to treat?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I noticed a bump and then I got worried and thought it was a pimple.
Expert:  Dr. S. Attili replied 8 months ago.

ok. Your penis was entirely normal before you applied the apple cider to treat this 'pimple'?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I thought so. But I think one was here 6 months ago in the same spot. On the tip.
Expert:  Dr. S. Attili replied 8 months ago.

No i mean this wrinkling wasn't there before you treated the pimple?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I was reading about ppp, and balantis. Or yeast . but when I tried to pop the pimple I don't know if I irritated the skin pores. And I'm wondering if I can get a pap smear from the red spot. It doesn't appear to be open tho or weeping.
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Also no whitening on skin or anything when vinage r or acv was applied. And been drinking vinage r and applying tea tree oil mostly.Cortisone cream better to use?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I don't think so. However if I look closemy or spread it out now it sort of looks bumpy and not wrinkly.
Expert:  Dr. S. Attili replied 8 months ago.

ok. This doesn't look worrying at all. The red spot looks non-specific and may have just been caused by friction/ irritation. Yes, you can just apply cortaid cream 3-4 times a day and it should settle in a weak or two. I see nothing worrying. The wrinkling just implies dry skin, possibly just caused by the apple cider. Just use petroleum jelly 3-4 times a day liberally all over. That should rehydrate the skin.

Hope this helps. Do keep me posted & get back if you have any further questions or feel that I have missed out anything. I will be here to provide ongoing advice as necessary. Best wishes.
