Customer Question

I have several bumps on the shaft of my penis. I have never had anything like this before. I have sex about once or twice a week with different people but I wear a condom 99% of the time. Only if I know them well o haven't. Which is a bout once a year. The last time was about 2 months ago
JA: How long have you been dealing with this issue? Are you in any pain?
Customer: Since yesterday morning and it itches a little bit no pain
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I have had chlamydia about 6 months ago
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.

I was with pill antibiotic .
No discharge at all
Normal bathroom usage .The pic I'm sending the bumps look red. They usually never are. But I masturbated before the picture to see if getting off was painful or anything . Which it was not .
I can send more pics later when it looks like it normally does

Also it was like I went to bed and woke up and noticed it ?

Well as you describe and picture suggest friction induced bumps.

So you can try OTC Hydrocortisone cream mixed with Bacitracin.

Also take OTC Claritin and Motrin.

Avoid rough masturbation.

And if your symptoms'll not improve in 2 days then see your doctor again and repeat STD panel should be done for a precautionary measure.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.
