Customer Question

Hi, I have a small red bump on my penis / foreskin that I'm concerned about. It has recurred and I've had a doctor look at it but he said it was normal and I shouldn't be worried.

Hi there,

One small red bump without any pain or itching is not an infection.

This can be a dilated blood capillary --a benign harmless finding.

Also known as angioma.

May remain the same for long time.

Sometimes may regress on its own.

A dermatologist may be able to remove it by pulsed laser therapy.
