Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have got a wart or pimple-like appearance on the base of my penis. There is no bleeding, pain, or itching. They become prominent after shaving. I am sexually active and have safe vaginal sex only. I have received oral sex without protection many times. Do I need to worry?

Please help.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understood your concern.

I went through your images (the attachments removed to protect the patient's identity).

The images seem to suggest that you have developed Fordyce spots. These are harmless swellings of the sweat glands on the penile skin. They are not sexually transmitted, and you cannot spread them to your partner, via intercourse or oral sex. If they are not causing you any harm, it is best to leave them alone.

If you are bothered by the cosmetic appearance, getting them lasered off would be an option, but they can always reappear at another location on a different date.

I hope this helps.

Best wishes.

Thanks and regards.

Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

Thanks for your reply.

Actually, I never had such an outbreak before on my penis, so I am a bit worried. Actually, I want to know if I receive oral sex from a sex worker without a condom, how risky it will be. Is it ok to wash the penis with soap after oral sex?

Please help.

Answered by Dr. Madhav Tiwari

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Receiving oral sex from someone you are not regularly sexually active with is risky. However, the current lesions do not look like they are sexually transmitted. As I said these look like Fordyce spots which are noncancerous and noncontagious. They may keep on growing or may not spread anymore at all. There is no way for us to determine that.

Hope it helps.

Thanks and regards.
