Sexually Transmitted Diseases/What is this? I need your help


Hey Mr Brice,

For the last 4 days I have been hoping for this thing to go away. First thing I thought was  to report this. Please I need your help.

Desperately to find an answer I came across this website which I find every informative.
My first is in a form of a question: 4 days ago, when I was taking a shower while cleaning my penis had a little burning sensation on the head of my penis. I thought it wasn't a big deal but yesterday when I look at it I noticed that it has a lot of little red points. I haven't had sex in a while and obviously I don't think is a sexually transmitted disease. The first thing that came to mind was; a penis allergy cause by soap?

Or this must be the some kind of side affects cause by the fitness vitamins C I'm taking which are Optimen, fishoil, BCAA and Glucosamine. Or maybe it's the Methylprednisolone I took two weeks ago for my sinus infection.  I will atrrach a pic.

Hi Beltran,

That looks like a reaction to something that you're using. Normally prednisone wouldn't cause such reactions as much as get rid of them, so I'm thinking you could be taking a supplement that you could have an allergy to. While its not serious, the skin of your glans is pretty sensitive to changes in the environment and soaps, dyes, perfumes, should have been cleared up by this point. I would stop taking your supplements for a week to see if it goes away on its own and if it does then go on ONE supplement at a time to see if anything changes. Always consult with your physician if nothing clears up the symptoms within a couple of weeks.

Best wishes,
