I have a few pumps on my penis glans, which I've seen a doctor about twice and have been told is fine, but am wanting a second opinion. On the first occasion I visted the doctor (about 6 weeks ago) I had just one bump (which he looked at - and said it was probably nothing) and had a full STI test (blood and urine) which came back negative for everything.
About two weeks later I had noticed another bump so went back to check. Again he said it was probably nothing to get excited about. I thought it might be genital warts as it had a wart like appearance - but he said its unlikely to be anything serious and not contagious. I've now noticed a third bump emerging, as well as changes in the shape of the first bump and so am getting a tad concerned again.
About a week ago and a bit ago I started wondering if it might be something fungal, as for the four months or so prior I had noticed my scrotum had been dryer than usual and quite itchy (jock itch?). About 2 and a half months ago I had noticed some reddening of the glans, my foreskin feeling dryer and itchy as well, followed by an increase smegma under the glans. This eventually passed as well. I thought this might the result of the spreading of the Jock Itch (as I hadn't really done anything to treat it as I generally have dry skin on other parts of my body so thought it could be just that) so started thinking maybe this had spread to my glans and these bumps were some kind of reaction.
As a result I went and bought some clotrimazole cream and have been applying it to my groin and glans. So far I've noticed an improvement in the dryness of my scrotum, but not my change in the bumps on my glans. I do intend on giving it another week of cream to see if it changes and then heading back to the doctor (maybe a different one this time) but was wondering if you might have any ideas in the mean time. I will upload photos as soon as I can figure out how :) Thanks.
Thanks for that,
Are you able to determine anything from the pictures I've since attached?
I havent tried pulling it off at all. It's kind of grown that way.
Does it look anything like HPV?
