ulcer on penis

I have got a lot of painful ulcers on the penis. I have been to a std blood test, currently waiting for its results. Before this,  I have the same problem few days ago but the ulcer heal itself. Have sexual acticities with my gf(which is the same gf for 2 years) few weeks ago. Am very worried as i saw there are new white spots growing on my penis. Could i know is it possiblly a std? if its not am i infected with something else

Ulcers on the penis are usually caused by herpes, and that they are recurring is suggestive of herpes.

It could also be a fungal infection, a bacterial infection like staph, etc.

Instead of just doing blood tests, someone needs to culture these to see what is causing this.

A culture is when the doctor takes a sterile q-tip and swabs the area, then sends it to the lab to see what grows.

If its getting worse, you need to go back and see the doctor.

erm after takin the medicine and wash my penis regularly, the ulcer seems to be recovering slowly. the while dots in the middle of the ulcer seems to be going away buy there tends to be a cut sigh after the white dot gone away. is there anything i can do while waitin for the doctor. btw, the medicine the doctor gave me was some antibiotic and   a medicine named potcit mixture

I think you need to go and see your doctor to show him how bad it is before it all heals up.

Oh sorry - no.

You had said it was getting worse, and since you didn't get a culture done, you should let the doctor see them before they get better to try and get a culture done.
