Please help.


Q: My boyfriend has 2 small sores on his penis that I have pictures of. One showed up at first and a few days later (today) we noticed another and we are worried, but don't know what to be worried about. They don't look serious to me, but I'm not a doctor either. We would like to know what they are. They are not wet or anything just scabbed over. He has pulled the scabs off of them, but one has grown back. When the scabs are removed they are wet, but do not ooze. He doesn't have any pain from the or itching or anything and didn't know they were there until I noticed them. Please and thank you for your help.
