Which part of the penis do you have pimples?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Middle to base where I shaved
Dermatologist: dermdoc19, Dermatologist replied 2 years ago

One possibility is Molluscum Contagiosum. Since you are not able to provide a picture, I would suggest that you check a few pictures on the internet and see if that fits. Then get back to me. This does not sound like a typical yeast infection.

Any symptoms? as your girl firend's problem but diagnosed by a physician as a yeast infection? Was testing done?

I do not have any symptoms other than these "pimples" which I broke and are seeming to heal and being uncomfortable slight pain and slight itching. she was diagnosed by a physician and given treatment for the yeast infection.
Dermatologist: dermdoc19, Dermatologist replied 2 years ago

This seems most likely to be a folliculitis which we physicians are seeing more of as men are beginning to shave in this area. I would recommend washgint the area with Hibiclens 4% was once a day. Be sure to rinse off well. Then apply Benzoyl Peroxide 10 to the pimples. The only other thin I can think of would be herpes simplex, but I would be very reluctant to make that diagnosis without a culture, never mind without the visualization a picture could provide.
