White spots on penis with pus

Resolved Question:

Hello,

I have white spots on my penis. Normal.
They sometimes turn into white heads ( very small) if the area is sweaty or if I was in hot tubs or a lot of water or lastly, if my penis has any clog gage or irritation.

I recently started working out like a mad man. I noticed a lump ( like an ingrown hair) by the base of
My penis shaft. I don't see the hair. Is one single bump. Looks irritated. Small puss chalky clear fluid came out and it's still there. It's been almost a week. It doesn't hurt unless I make it hurt.. The skin only looks red or inflamed after I shower. Other then that it's hard to see
Unless I stretch my skin. It looks like a skin infection I guess.

Lastly, I have been putting some alcortin A on it.
It seems to help with the swelling. Should I continue to apply this? There is no ulcer after 7 days. Just one irritated area / small bump. Would I be able to send you a picture?

Thoughts?

I emailed you threw photos for review of rash


Hello,

Thanks for posting your query at DoctorSpring.com. I can understand your concern.

You seem to be having an infected cyst. You need to apply fucidin cream on it twice a day. That will resolve the infection.

The cyst can be treated by your dermatologist by burning it off.

Hope this helps, Please let me know if you have any queries.

Take care


Patient replied :

I don't have INS right now. Can it be frozen off? Lastly, can I purchase fucidin cream at my local pharmacy? One more, any particular reason why I have this cyst? Will the Alcortin A work ?


Hello

Thanks for your reply.

There is no reason to get the cyst.

Fucidin will need a prescription. Neosporin is available over the counter without a prescription.

It can be frozen off once the infection subsides.


Take care


Patient replied :

This is my last inquiry for sure. I appreciate your insight. I have been putting mupirocin 2% in it and it's still kinda inflamed. Again, no sore. Just cyst ( I hope) that is slightly raised and red.

Do you have anymore insight about diagnostic?


Hello

Thanks for your reply.

It's surely a cyst. You can continue application of mupirocin for one more week.

The inflammation will settle down. If there is pain you can take paracetamol tablet for it.


Take care
