Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
Thank you for your question. My name is***** and I will do my best to provide a useful input.
Would a photograph of the affected area be possible at your convenience?
Thank you for the photograph - how long has it been like this?
How soon after having sex did the problem start? Was it with a new sexual partner and was it protected or unprotected?
Do you have any burning while passing urine?
Thank you for the information. This looks like either a bacterial or fungal sore with surrounding inflammation. To this end I would suggest mixing Neosporin cream with 1% Lotrimin cream and applying twice a day on the affected area and taking Tablet Advil 400 mg orally twice a day to reduce the inflammation. All of these are available over the counter without a prescription. If the sore clears up in 1-2 weeks then nothing further is required. If not then you should get your blood VDRL test done to rule out Syphilis since the first stage, called a Pri***** *****cre, can look like this sometimes and can occur up to 90 days after sexual contact. If the test is positive then treatment is simple and consists of one injection of Benzathine Penicillin which cures the problem.
Till the sore clears up avoid sex and masturbation.
Please feel free to ask if you have any queries. I will be happy to continue further and do everything I can to provide you with the service you seek.
P.S: Apologies for the delayed reply, was traveling and only got back today.
