I have these tiny, red bumps that appeared on the

Patient: I have these tiny, red bumps that appeared on the head of my penis and some on my foreskin. They don’t itch or burn, nor are they wart-like/pimple-like.Any idea what it could be?

 

 

Symptoms: Almost non existent red bumps on penis head and a bit of foreskin.

 

 

Doctor: Hi.Thanks for a proper description.This is most probably a condition called balanoposthitis.This may appear du e to unprotected sex or can just occur due to sudden exposure to hot and humid condition where you could not maintain personal hygiene well.This is most of the times self limiting and just cleaning it 3-4 time with plain water and applying metronidazole cream can cure it within a few days.if not cleared within 3 days, you may consult a Doctor to get a prescription foe and antibiotic and metronidazole orally.Check for blood sugar.
