Patient :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?
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.
