The picture is extremely blurry, all i can make out is a white area at the tip of the penis, is that the lesion you mentioned?

From what I can make out in the picture, it looks to be a fungal infection more than anything else. The appearance is not consistent with warts or any sexually transmitted disease whatsoever, a fungal infection is common in patients who are uncircumcised in this region of the penis. It can cause itching, occasional pain, redness of the skin and it may spread to affect the rest of the penis if not treated in time. The infection by itself will not cause any long-term harm to your health or to your sexual capability.

It is usually managed with the use of topical OTC clotrimazole cream on the area if necessary a small course of oral antifungals can be used including fluconazole.

Additionally, the tip of the penis seem slightly inflamed in the picture, this could be an indication of balanitis which is what an infection of the tip of the penis is referred to. The white blister could be a consequence of balanitis itself. It can occur because of bacterial, viral or fungal infections and again usually the application of topical medications solves the problem.

But this is NOT a wart, herpes or any other sexually transmitted disease if that is what you were worried about however it can be a fungal infection which is why I think you should get it evaluated at least once and in the meantime do start using OTC clotrimazole cream on the area.

Do you have any more questions?
