Dear customer

Thank you for your patience. I am so sorry for the long wait.

The symptoms you have described of having a couple of small blisters on your penis can most likely be due to fordyce's spots.

Fordyce spots are a variant of sebaceous glands (the glands that normally produce sebum and are usually found within hair follicles).

These are normal physiological occurrences and are not dangerous. They are not a sexually transmitted disease and they are not infectious.

Next possibility is of folliculitis.It is inflammation of one or more hair follicles.The damaged follicles are then infected with the bacteria staphylococcus.

Other possibilities can be friction/lack of lubrication. As you have history of diabetes this can also aid to these blisters.

Following is recommended for you now:
• Apply ointment ultramide or ointment polysporin.they are available as OTC(over the counter) at your pharmacy without prescription & will help you greatly.

  • Apply heat in the form of a warm wash cloth applied to the area for 10 minutes or so 2 or 3 times a day increase blood flow to the area allowing to subside the inflammation.

All this will help you greatly.

If still after this,the symptoms persists,then you need to make an appointment with your doctor as prescription oral medications will then be required accordingly.Usually & most likely,the symptoms gets subside with these treatment & doctor visit is less likely required.

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.
