Hello.About 2-3 weeks ago I noticed a small cluster of flat, barely raised spots that look pink or flesh toned on the top,flatter side of the head of my penis.Also the outter edges of the crown of my penis look a bit swollen.Since I noticed them they have not grown in size, but there seems to be a few smaller spots around the main cluster and crown.There is no pain/itching/discharge.I was just wondering if this sounds like genital warts or lichen planus.Ive seen the doc once and am awaiting a check up appointment.She suggested neosporin but that didnt work, and genital warts was the next thing on her list.Thank you for the time and help.
If they're clustering together I'd suspect warts too. Warts usually do not cause pain. Difficult to tell without seeing them. Some men however, have papules around the glans that are not warts, but can be sensitive and can get irritated.
Did you ever get this resolved? I have symptoms that are nearly identical - tiny, round, flat topped papules with occasional erythema and some swelling localized to the brim, or crown, of the glans. These are definitely not warts, and also are not pearly penile papules. I would be interested if you would post the outcome.
