Hi, I have red bumps on my penis head (Glans Rash). They appear

Customer Question

Hi, I have red bumps on my penis head (Glans Rash). They appear for two to three days then disappear. I believe I was around 21 the last time I had unprotected sex. And these little red bumps never appeared before. The last time I had sex was between June 12-20 and I received protected oral sex and I also use protection when I went inside her. I started to notice these little red bumps around 2 to 3 weeks ago and they have been coming and leaving since then.
Like around July 18 a few appeared and left like two to three days later then on July 27 they appeared again. They don't feel hard and they don't hurt at all. They appear then disappear. Could it be the soap I use? I sometimes use CVS baby oil to moisture my penis. And I use palmers cocoa butter sometimes as well. Or is it the detergent? My penis head looks flaky and wrinkled and feels dry as well. And before I ever had naked sex I had flaky dry skin on my scrotum. I would use cocoa butter to moisturize it but it only worked for a few hours then they would be ashy and flaky again. The girl that I slept with had gotten an HIV exam and she was negative so I don't believe I have an STD. I've been paranoid for like a week now. And I'm uncircumcised. I have pictures of the bumps.

Hi,

 

If you have used protection and no recent history of unprotected sex chances of HIV are negligible.

Probably the bumps you describe may be related to contact allergy/latex allergy.

In some cases fungal infection can also occur as a result of moisture and manifest as dryness and flakiness you describe.

I would suggest you to treat this condition with anti fungal ointment like 1%Clotrimazole (brand name Canesten or Lotrimin)

Fungal infection do respond to anti fungal topical treatment in most cases.

Also if there is any associated itching you can use anti histaminic like cetirizine.

Avoid using products/detergent base etc in the genital area for some days.

Don't panic and this condition will get better with appropriate treatment.

 

I hope this helps
