I was takin a shower n I noticed a red bump on my penis n I got worried n I really too scared to go doctors

Hi Jerry,

First of all, why would you be to scared to go to the doctor? Would you rather be miserable or put out of your misery? With that said, its not anything I would be concerned with as we're entering the hotter parts of the year and heat bumps, jock itch, rashes, and sweating-related problems are abound and a lot of those problems can be attributed to that. Since I'm not a physician, I cant give you a diagnosis, but its most likely a pimple. However, pimples don't work the same on your penis as they do on the rest of your body. For one, you don't have sebum glands on your shaft and scrotum, so there is no whitehead that's created. Instead the inflammation will heal itself after a few days or so and you'll never have noticed it. Let me know how it turns out.
