Star Shaped Lesion on Penile Shaft
1 small bump has appeared on my penis just a few days ago.  It is on the shaft, just below the head.  I took a magnifying glass to it to get a better picture, and it seems as if the bump has a perfect star shaped indentation in it.  I've done a lot of browsing but have not seen anything similar on the web.  I had sex with a condom, but normal oral sex with a woman about a month ago.  I've also had unprotected sex a year ago.  Since then I've been tested for HIV, which came back negative.  No other symptoms have risen until this 1 small star shaped bump right now.  Could this be a harmless rash?

Hello,
This bump can be due to folliculitis, cysts ,molluscum contagiosum(multiple, small, dome-shaped papules, often with a central depression or plug) or genital warts(caused by HPV infection). Warts are tumors or growths of the skin caused by infection with Human Papillomavirus (HPV).They are contagious when in contact with the skin of an infected person.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
