Customer Question
Hello, I have noticed...

Hello, I have noticed a little ret dots on my penile head, it doesnt itch, but does cause slight discomfort now that i know its there

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that makes your head feel worse or better?

I just noticed it a few days ago and friction i would say irritates it more as opposed to me just sitting down or laying down

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have had a UTI before that kind of felt this way, but other than that nothing else in my history

Just one partner I have sex with, do masturbate about 1-2 times a day, no history of discharge.

I don't think you are suffering from a STD.

These may be friction induced and caused by irritation.Also some spots can come about as a result of dilated blood vessels.

You can try 1 % hydrocortisone cream as well.

Also wear cotton undergarments.

Avoid any new perfumes or toilet products or soaps.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
