Customer Question
I have a small...

I have a small circular "rash" on my penis that appeared with almost a ridge of small bumps, that looks almost like a circular welt. The center is darker, perhaps glossy or streched looking. It does not itch nor is particularly sensitive, is not open or weeping. It's smaller than size or my little fingernail, and hasn't changed much. I'm circumcised, and it's located just above ridge of the glans.Im 48 years old and a diabetic.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this issue? Are you in any pain?

I noticed it two months ago. i thought it might have been jock itch and tried OTC meds. but it doesnt seem to go away. it does not itch or hurt

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

Not that i can think of

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.
