Can you attach the photos here? Pain or itch?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The tip itch sometimes but then goes away and it's not letting me send a picture.
Expert:  Dr. khagihara replied 1 year ago.

The bumps under the glans are called Pearly papules. The bumps on the shaft are called Fordyce spots. Both are normal. You don't need to worry about them. Reassured.

But also today while I was on lunch break at work I noticed some of the same but on my neck and lips but also worried me
Expert:  Dr. khagihara replied 1 year ago.

Can you attach color photos?

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.

Hello

These pictures are not good enough to exclude warts.

If you have this on the neck as well, this is most likely.

OR, musculosum contagiosum

You would not get pearly papules on the neck.

I am a double board certified US doctor.

Find me in medical any time.

What is this and how is the best would you think it can be taken care properly
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.

do you have a better picture of the neck lesions?

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.

OK

I have no picture of the lip lesions either.

I would say the neck lesions, as best as I can say, are milia.

This is harmless.

The lip lesions are likely to be fordyce spots.

The lesions under the foreskin are atypical enough that you need a magnified exam [which you should have on all of these]. I can not verify for sure that they are all pearly papules, and you want to rule out early warts, fungal infection, etc. Pearly papules are normal, but they would not appear all of a sudden.

I think they disappeared
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.

OK

Most likely they were milia if they resolved.

Can't see your lips.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The same but can you take a look at the picture I sent you of my penis of the clustered bumps
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.

I see nothing on your lips.

Your penis could be pearly papules but they don't have quite the typical appearance.

REmember that you need to be examined under magnification for a diagnosis.

We do not diagnose on the site.

You want to rule out small warts as i said.

A magnified exam will resolve this.

If you want to circle what you are talking about in the lip area I will take another look.

Is this something to worry about
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.

The first looks like fungal

The legs look like scabies.

You need to go see a dermatologist or internist.

You have multiple indications of a problem.

Do that this week.

Please click a positive

Then come back if needed. We are only paid per rating, not for time spent.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What do you mean ?
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.

The first of the last two pictures looks fungal.

The leg lesions look like lesions you have scratched, which is typical of scabies.

Simple as that.

You need to see a doctor in person to confirm any diagnosis.

You clearly have several problems going on at once.

Preferably you see an internal medicine doctor or dermatologist.

Please click a positive now.

Come back later and let me know what you find out.
