Sexually Transmitted Diseases/Tiny Red Bumps on penis



Please help..I've got these tiny little bumps on the head of my penis. STD? Or am I just freaking out. I went to the doctor about a small spot which he ruled as trama. Sorry for the spelling. On and off itching but no burning while I pee..please help

Hi Nick,

I wouldn't consider that an STI, but a symptom of a fungal infection common to jock itch. In fact, the redness and itching is something I've lived with for over 15 years and I just deal with it. If it weren't for the miracle of talcum powder, regular showers, clean underwear, and a sense of cleanliness, I would have gone crazy a long time ago. The fact is nothing is truly wrong with you, but if you would like a small "remedy," then hydrocortisone, lightly applied to the area, once or twice a day will reduce the redness and itching as it functions as an anti-inflammatory. This is pretty much all I can offer you, but if you have further follow up make sure you to discuss all pertinent treatment possibilities with your physician.

Best wishes,
