Hello doctor,

I have blisters on the head of my penis due to masturbation without proper lubricant. I thought that it would heal by itself in a few days but now the blister popped and the skin is very tender and hurts to the touch. Also, another blister of sort, developed on the tip. It cannot be an STI because I have not had sex for several months now. How should I go about with the treatment?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

There are a few conditions which cause painful blisters even without a sexual contact, like genital herpes, primary syphilis, impetigo among others.

Please provide more details:

  1. Are these blisters painful or painless?
  2. Is there a discharge that you noticed?
  3. Is there a history of fever?
  4. Is there a history of sexual intercourse?

The treatment would vary according to the details you provide.

If you underwent any investigations, please attach that during the follow-up.

Hello doctor,

Thank you for the quick answer. And to answer the questions. They are painless except now that the blister had popped and it is tender to touch. There is no form of discharge as far as I can tell except the dead skin from the blister. There is no fever, but I had a pain in the waist, most probably due to the UTI that I had and I took medication for. I have had no sexual partner for the last seven to eight months.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Your history and symptoms are suggestive of genital herpes, because of vigorous masturbation causing ulcers.

I suggest the following treatment:

  1. Tablet Acyclovir 400 mg one tablet three times a day for 10 days. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start taking the medicines with their consent.
  2. Local application of ointment Mupirocin over the ulcer area twice daily after bath.
  3. Tablet Diclofenac twice daily for five days.
  4. Tablet Pantoprazole 40 mg once daily early in the morning.
  5. Maintain proper hygiene.

Feel free to follow up at any time.
