Customer Question

Hello, I had some small bumps show up on my penis. I first noticed them after an outdoor concert where I think they got chaffed. I have pictures but don't see where I can upload them. From what I have found on the internet they appear to be moloscum contagiosum

Here are some pictures

The lesions on the pictures are likely from herpes virus. Moluscum contagiosum lesions are different. You should see your PCP to have blood work and be tested for other sexual transmitted diseases. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Please rate my answer.

Thanks

I don't have any other symptoms other than bumps, the ones that are red have been irritated from being chaffed, I had also tried to pop one of them before I realized it was probably a bad idea

Herpes rash is usually like that. Follow with your PCP as soon as you can.
