Sexually Transmitted Diseases/bumps




for almost 2 years ive had this problem. i have an irritated looking glans, it does not cause me any pain or itching so i do not even know it is there until i look at it. ive already tried anti fungal creams which have not worked. ive also had a swab test done which nothing showed up. i have eczema which leads me to believe it may be something to do with that?

Hi George, I felt that I have already answered this question before. Those are called papules and exist under the skin or "subdermal." There is no treatment for them, nor can they be removed. They are considered quite normal and exist in all of my male clients. I cant advise you on this issue further, but if you need any more information, ask your physician.

Best wishes,
