Sexually Transmitted Diseases/is this an std?


First of all thanks for helping! I recently have noticed multiple red bumps on my penis head and I've been worried it might be an std. I noticed after having sex with my wife because I was having pain during inter course they do not seem to have. Any discharge but I'm very scared that it may be an std

Hi Eliseo,

You look to be having a bout of balanitis, which is a fungal infection. If you had noticed this sooner, we could have done something to prevent it, but its spreading. You'll need to get yourself checked out by a physician and he/she will put you on a topical ointment and/or antibiotic to get rid of it. Try to get yourself in as soon as you can because it will only get worse and try to limit your sexual contact or you can spread it to your partner.

Best wishes,


Sexually Transmitted Diseases
