Customer Question
Hello, 33yr old w/m no...
Hello, 33yr old w/m no past significant medical history. I've been involved in a monogamous relationship for over 9yrs. Sunday I noticed a flat, moist, red spot just below the head of my penis. Further inspection. Showed several other areas of redness that appeared to be bumps. There was no pain or discomfort until I continued to manipulate the areas. I also noticed later in the evening the red spot either had a scab or crusty tissue. No puss/fluid filled lesions were observed. Looking for information. See attached pictures.

Just felt nothing feels swollen or sore

Thank you very much for your reply sent.

There is no pain , no blisters , no discharge , no scab formation , no clustering.

There is no indication of an STD nor is there any sign of a wart / hpv genital wart or herpes.

There is nothing to worry . This looks more like a benign yeast cell inflammation . You can treat the area with local application of Lotrimin lotion on the area twice a day for 10 days.

Use Cetaphil cleansing lotion to cleanse the area .

Do let me know if you have any further queries.
