There are rashes or bumps on my penis, and I am scared to go to the emergency room. The bumps are red, itchy, and look like lumps. Kindly help.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I saw your attached pictures (attachments removed to protect the patient's identity). I would like to know the answers to the following questions:
1) Is there any history of sexual exposure?
2) How did it start initially?
We can have a few differential diagnoses that includes:
1. Candidial yeast infection.
3. Irritant contact dermatitis due to either latex condoms or frequently cleansing with excessive lather soaps.
You will require a physical examination for a few clues and an exact diagnosis.
Thanks for answering.
I am sexually active.
I am assuming that the bump and redness are due to my itching. I am not very sure of it.
Does it look like Herpes?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Herpes infection will have clear-cut tiny water-like vesicles with red, inflamed skin. Usually, there are either complaints of burning sensation or no symptoms at all.
In the pictures attached (attachment removed to protect the patient's identity), I can see red to skin-colored lesions randomly distributed on the dorsal side of the penis. It may not be Herpes also.
Still, for confirmation, I would suggest HSV (herpes simplex virus) 1 and 2, IgG (immunoglobulin G) and IgM (immunoglobulin M), TPHA (Treponema pallidum hemagglutination) tests, and complete urine examination for ruling out herpes, syphilis, and gonorrhea infections.
Use cleansers for a genital wash.
