physician123 :

Hello

physician123 :

Welcome to just answer.

physician123 :

I am sorry to hear of your discomfort .

Customer:

Hi

Customer:

thanks

physician123 :

Have you experienced something like this in the past as well?

Customer:

nope

physician123 :

PLease reply by typing in the box below .

Customer:

i do shave the area though

Customer:

no

physician123 :

You there ?

Customer:

yeah im here

Customer:

hello?

Customer:

??

physician123 :

PLease answer the questions that I have asked so that I can understand your case better .

Customer:

no i have never experienced this

physician123 :

Does it look like a pimple ?

Customer:

sort of

physician123 :

Okay

Customer:

but it doesn't scab

physician123 :

Do you have any other complaints apart from this ?

physician123 :

Have you had unprotected sexual intercourse in the recent past ?

Customer:

a condom broke about a month ago

physician123 :

Was it with a high risk partner ?

Customer:

not too sure

Customer:

i don't know her history that well

physician123 :

Do you have any such lesions on the penis head and any discharge from the penis?

Customer:

nope

Customer:

its not really a lesion

Customer:

its solid

physician123 :

Thank you for the information . The commonest cause of a penile bump on the shaft is a sebaceous cyst .

physician123 :

Okay

Customer:

ok do they scab if popped?

physician123 :

You should use hot moisture compresses on it ,this will bring the pus to the surface and will eventually drain on its own

physician123 :

Once it has drained then you can use an over the counter antibiotic like neosporin to apply over the area

physician123 :

If at all they do scab it will be very minimal.

Customer:

so a chancer is more of an open sore then?

physician123 :

If it persists even after these interventions then you will need to get it checked.

physician123 :

It seems like a sebaceous cyst ...

physician123 :

The description does not match that of a STD as such

physician123 :

Thus if these measures do not help it to heal then you should seek medical help.

physician123 :

Though I do feel these measures will help get rid of it for good.

physician123 :

I hope you are getting my point ?

Customer:

i am thanks

physician123 :

Great

physician123 :

Please take the measures I mentioned

physician123 :

I wish you a speedy recovery and great health

physician123 :

Take care and god bless...

Customer:

i will thank you
