Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
Myself Dr Josh. and I’m happy to help with your question today.Please provide me the following information so that I can address your concern-
What is your age & gender?
Is it possible for you attach a picture of this?
Are the bumps reddish in color?
Waiting for your reply…
Thank you for the quick reply & for attaching those three pictures.I have seen them.
The symptoms you have described of having rash & raised bump on genitals since last 2 weeks can be due to folliculitis.It is inflammation of one or more hair follicles.The damaged follicles are then infected with the bacteria staphylococcus.Swabbing the skin, then sending it to a laboratory for bacterial and yeast cultures will confirm the infection.
Less likely this can be due to genital herpes.Genital herpes is diagnosed by visual inspection if the outbreak is typical, and by taking a sample from the sore(s) and testing it in a laboratory.A sample of your blood or sore tissue or can be tested to establish the presence of HSV
As you have already tried antibacterial and anti fungal creams without any relief,you now need to make an appointment with your doctor for tests of STD to rule out any STD & then oral antibiotics or anti viral medications & other medications will then be prescribed accordingly.
So bot***** *****ne is that most probably this seems to be due to folliculitis but STD like herpes needs to be ruled out.
Hope this helped.

You will be prescribed with oral antibiotics once the infection is confirmed.

God bless you & take care.
Thank you for replying back.
Yes,these bumps can also be due to genital warts.As you said that you had tiny warts all over your penis in 1st week & now have only rash ,although these are not typical for the herpes,but still there can be a low possibility of genital herpes or genital warts.
Warts are usually painless,small, flesh-colored or gray swellings in your genital area.Also Genital warts may go away on their own in about 10%-20% of people over a period of three to four months.
Only physical clinical examination & inspection can reveal the final diagnosis.So my best advise for you is to please make an appointment with your doctor for the examination & then treatment will be treatment will be done accordingly.
