Thanks for posting your query. I can understand your concern.

From the pictures, it doesn't seem to be herpes. Herpes usually presents with fluid filled blisters which are closely grouped together.

It seems like a bacterial or yeast infection.

I would recommend the application of neosporin cream and lotrimin cream twice a day for two weeks. That would resolve the infection.

Please let me know if you have any queries.

Take care

Patient replied :

Hi, Thank you for your reply.
It has been 2 month and it still remains the same. It is closely resemble together and am wondering if this would be harmful in anyway.



Please could you send a picture again of the lesion the way it is now?

Patient replied :

It seems like it is spreading to other parts of the penis. I am really worried now.

It is clustered but It is small and maybe my penis is not clean but I feel a thick layer on it
It looked exactly like two month ago and there is no pain whatsoever


Thanks for your reply.

The picture shows fordyce's spots which are ectopic sebaceous glands on the penis.

Its nothing to worry about, doesn't cause any harm and can be left alone without any treatment.

Take care
