Thank you very much. here is were the photos were uploaded to http://photobucket.com/johnmedprob you will se them off to the left.
Without examination, confirmation of a diagnosis is tough but it can be contact dermatitis, rash due to friction rub, folliculitis, cysts ,molluscum contagiosum(multiple, small, dome-shaped papules, often with a central depression or plug) or genital warts(caused by HPV infection). Even genital warts cannot be ruled out as it is spread through direct skin-to-skin contact during oral, genital, or anal sex with an infected partner.
Apply warm compresses, Neosporin ointment and calamine lotion and avoid messing with it. You can take anti-inflammatory pain killers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen. If the lumps persist then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist.
I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
How long does the contact dermatitis last, ( I have bumps that are skin color, sometimes a dark red color on the head)... also i have tiny white flaky bumps that feel like little scabs on the shaft, could this be do to contact dermatitis?
