Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hi. Dr Rick here. I completed an Internal medicine internship in NYC and have two decades of clinical experience. How can I assist you today?
How old are you?
How long has this been present?
can you upload a picture with the area of interest in clear focus?
Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?
This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. I look forward to helping you.
Thank you for that additional information and pictures.
That could, possibly, be the start of a syphilitic chancre......
It would be unusual for irritated skin to be on just one spot like that unless you had some trauma to your penis etc.
So. What to do?
Even though you have been in a monogamous relationship for over a year I feel that the safest thing to do is have an exam and STD testing done.
There are places you can go that offer this type of services and you don't even have to give your name.
Does this make sense to you?
I am happy to be able to help you today. If you would be so kind, please help me get credit for my efforts in answering your questions and press the excellent feedback button for this encounter. And, don’t forget, I work for tips. I would also be happy to continue to answer any more questions you have until we have resolved your concern.
