Painful lump on the bottom shaft of my penis.

Patient

Q: I have a very painful pimple/zit on the base of my penis.
it first started as a regular looking acne and now it is the size of a quarter and is very painful.
short of going to the ER what can I do to minimize the lump and pain?

Symptoms:  Pain
Doctor

A:   Thanks for your query on ATD.
It seems that you are having bacterial infection of hair root known as furuncle. My advice kindly visit your dermatologist / surgeon.
For pain you can take tab Paracetamol.
Hope it helped you.
