Customer Question

A week back I have noticed small white head pimple on my pennis head and now it looks like an ulcer. Last time I had a sex 2 years back (with protection ) and oral sex 5 months back.
Can you please suggest me what might be causing this problem?
Is there any ointment can you suggest to get ride of this ulcer?

This is likely an acne like lesion.

inflammation of the skin gland probably from bacterial infection.

This is not a STD.

You can try over the counter triple antibiotic ointment meanwhile.

Hi, Today I went to medical store and not able to find Neosporin ointment, so bought the "Salvon dual Action" gel, please let me , this one fine to use on my private area?
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 1 year ago.

This is not an antibiotic ointment.

You can try looking for Bacitracin gel --the local pharmacist may be able to assist you.
