Question:

I noticed these little bumps like a couple of months ago on my penis, I thought nothing of it - well about after couple of months I saw little bumps o?




 



this is not a question but its important!!! if your a guy and have a bump you need a biopsy!! its when they cut the bump and sent it to get results!! wemon can get a papsmear to know....and for wemon who dont have the virus they can now take 3 vacines to prevent exposure to the more severe forms of the virus but for men the onlything we have is biopsys cut it and test it!!!

Sounds like sebaceous glands, do they look like this? (http://www.studenthealth.co.uk/leaflets/NormalVariantsInAnogenitalSkin.htm)

IF they do, ITS NORMAL, not an STD/STI or anything. Merely a gland that for some reason is over active. the gland is used for lubricating hair, but shows up on the penis, balls. But see yoru doctor, DO NOT BE AFRAID, its confidential and you should always be open.

ive got the same thing to that the picture shows but ive been lotioning my penis when I masturbate now becuz i masturbated for 3o minutes everyday for 2 years without lotion so i think its juss irratated, it looks juss like the pictures of the normal bumps but there red but they dont itch, its been over 8 months since i had sex, they dont burn they dont even bother me so do you guys think its normal?

I am a 15 year old virgin. By looking at the picture I would say that I have sebaceous glands, since my lumps look exactly the same. I''m not sure if the problem is related or not, but I am also feeling pain in my penis, sometimes worse then others with no other symptoms that I know of. As unrelevant as this may be, I am also having abdominal pains, which like the penile pains are sometimes worse than others. I'm not sure if what I am saying is making any sense, but does anyone know what might be wrong with me?

i gues my sebaceous glands are over active..i have those bumps...do they go away on thier own?

if they look like the bumps in the pictures you are fine. I went to a dr. and checked it out anyways, but it is nothing..

Dr. said it is caused by dry irratation of the skin, and can happen because of condom uses or etc.

Prescribed : Nystatin and Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream, USP and it was gone in a week!

I have those bumps in those pictures to, I was wandering uf they are an STD and could they harm you at all? They also are on my balls and penis, I am to scared to talk to my parents about it to. I just hit puberty to. Also I was wandering if they could harm you penis or make it deformed ? And you said its normal, is that true? Or do you ahve to have sex to get it, because Im a Virgin and I have them =/

Don''t waste time with over-counter drugs.
The doctor can perscribe the strongest stuff that will do the job in a week.
It will oftem be anti-biotic, therefore cannot be sold freely over the counter.

I have been to the doc's for many skin problems etc...
They just give you the stuff in minutes and you walk away.
Done.

Warts on the genitals and warts on different parts of the body are not the same thing at all. The warts on the genitals can not be transmitted to other parts of the body (except the mouth, and this is uncommon), and common warts on the body can not be transmitted to the genitals. So whatever is on your arm has nothing to do with your penis. However, I would still consider getting checked out because any time there are bumps on your privates, it''s a good idea to get them looked at.

Pearly Penile Pustules (SP) are medically considered normal. I am uncut and have found this exp. common in uncut men.

im 15, and when I first started hitting puberty i noticed these bumps, but i dont want to ask to go to the doc and then tell my parents its because i have sebeacous glands. but these arent bad at all because i have been avoiding sex since i was able to orgasim. o well i just want them to go away because i dont want any girls to think they are herpes or something.

MINE DID NOT CHANGE AND IT WAS BARELY NOTICEABLE EXCEPT TO ME. DID NOT HAVE LOTS. ONLY 1. HAD THE PAPULAR KIND. NP AT CLINICS KEPT TELLING ME IT WAS "NOTHING" OR "NORMAL." DON''T GO TO A GENERAL PRACTIONER OR UROLOGIST UNLESS YOU HAVE TO. IF THEY SAY IT'S NOTHING ASK FOR A DERMATOLOGIST REFERRAL FOR A SECOND OPINION. LIE AND SAY YOU NEED THE REFERRAL FOR ACNE OR SOMTHIN ELSE IF THEY WILL NOT GIVE IT TO YOU.

THERE ARE 4 DIFFERENT TYPES OF GW/HPV "LESIONS":

1) CAULIFLOWER ACUMINATUM TYPES USUALLY FOUND IN FLESHY SKIN OF LABIA OR MEATAL OF MAN'S PENIS THESE ARE POINTED ONES. THEY ARE LOW RISK HPV USUALLY BUT CAN GET PRETTY BIG.

2) PAPULAR - DOME SHAPED, SMOOTH ON TOP, NO ROUGH OR FINGER LIKE PROTRUSION, SKIN COLORED, SMALL USUALLY. FOUND ON FULLY KERATINIZED SKIN LIKE WHERE HAIR IS IN PUBLIC AREAS INCLUDING LABIA MAJORA OR PENIS SHAFT OF MEN BUT CAN BE ON SCROTUM OR GROIN TOO AREA. LOOK LIKE SMALL SKIN COLORED MOLES OR DARKER MOLES. BARELY LOOK LIKE ANYTHING. ASSOCIATED WITH HIGH RISK HPV LIKE 16 BUT ARE CONSIDERED MORE RARE, BUT I THINK THESE GET BY DOCTORS ALL THE TIME AS SOAP BUMPS OR A "NORMAL CHANGE" OR THEY SAY IT'S A CHANGE DUE TO TRAUMA LIKE SHAVING CUT ETC.

3) FLAT USUALLY ON CERVICS AND NOT VISIBLE TO NAKE EYE CAUSE THEY ARE SUB CLINICAL DUH, BUT CAN ALSO BE ON EITHER KERATINIZED SKIN LIKE PUBIC AREA OR NON KERATINZED SKIN LIKE INSIDE ON LABIA. DIFFICULT TO DETECT BY DOCTORS UNLESS THEY ACETOWHITEN FOR WHAT THAT IS WORTH AND IT'S ASSOCIATED WITH HIGH RISK TYPES OF HPV BUT CAN BE LOW

4) KERATOTIC WARTS WHICH ARE HAVE A THINK HORNY TYPE LAYER LOW RISK ASSOCIATED USUALLY.

PAPS MAY NOT MEAN STD FREE BECAUSE EXERNAL GW DO NOT SHOW UP IN PAP TEST ONLY CERVICAL CHANGES! AND CONDOMS DO NOT STOP HPV CAUSE IT IS A SKIN DISORDER THAT LIVES IN THE SKIN! IT DOES NOT LIVE IN SEMEN OR Genital Warts. NO BLOOD TEST FOR HPV BECAUSE OF THIS! SO DUH!! ON A BRIGHTER SIDE CONDOMS DO STOP ALMOST EVERYTHING ELSE BUT HERPES ESPECIALLY HIV! =) AND LAST THING NONOXYNOL 9 WAS JUST FOUND TO AID IN THE TRANSMISSION OF HPV CAUSE IT CAUSES BREAKS IN THE SKIN SO JUST USE CONDOM START TO FINISH WITHOUT THIS STUFF I GUESS. SEE CDC WEBSITE THEY JUST CHANGED THEIR OLD POSITION OF NONOXYNOL 9 IS GOOD LAST WEEK.

Serbaceous cyst hair follicles (white bumps on penis shafts whre pubic hairs is), and penile papules, (smaller white dots on foreskin) can be removed by doctors surgically (you''d be under ananstethcic, won't feel a thing), OR carbondioxide laser treatment, (again, it uses 'invisible waves' which are painless).

I think the following should help people who want to know if they have HVP or GENITAL WARTS or not.

The ANSWER: THE ONLY SURE WAY TO TELL IS TO GET TESTED! (Do NOT be afraid of going to the doctor.)

Many people have posted questions about little white bumps, wanting to know if they are infected with HPV.

In many cases this is NOT HPV or HERPES or GENITAL WARTS.

There are two naturally ocurring skin conditions that affect between 50%-90% of the population.

1) FIND OUT WHAT YOU HAVE

CLICK ON THIS WEBSITE TO SEE WHICH OF THE TWO NON VIRAL, NATURAL SKIN CONDITIONS YOU HAVE:
http://www.studenthealth.co.uk/advice/advice.asp?adviceID=153

It is most likely one of the two conditions: PPP (PENILE PENILE PAPULES) or FS (FORDYCE''''S SPOTS).

They are both NATURAL, COMMON, NON-TRANSMITTABLE, AND ARE NOT GENITAL WARTS, NOT HPV and NOT HERPES.


2) LEARN ABOUT WHAT YOU HAVE


PENILE PENILE PAPULES

Some conditions (a ring of tiny white bumps near the head of the penis) are called PENILE PENILE PAPULES.

To see what this condition is visit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hirsuties_papillaris_genitalis
(there is a picture there for you to compare with your condition)

To read up on PPP go to: http://pearlypenilepapules.net/ or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hirsuties_papillaris_genitalis



FORDYCE''S SPOTS

Some conditions (small skin colored spots or raised bumps that appear on the shaft of the penis or labia) are called
FORDYCE''S SPOTS.

To see what this condition is visit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fordyce%27s_spot
(there is a picture there for you to compare with your condition)

To read up on FS go to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fordyce%27s_spot


3) GET HELP IF YOU NEED IT

Skin conditions are very common. There is nothing to be ashamed of. For other skin conditions, including STDs
talk to your family. They should be there to help you. If you can not talk to your family or seek help you
might want to try the following site:

http://www.sworn.org/stdhelp.html
http://www.chicagohelp.org/
http://stdhelp.org/

I hope this reply was helpful for the many dozens or hundreds of people that thought they had an STD when in reality
they only had a NATURAL SKIN CONDITION with nothing to worry about. INFO=KNOWLEDGE! Pass it on.
