New Rash

Hello,

I have recently noticed pimple-like growths on my penis. There have also been what appears to be bumps under the skin. This has been only recently, and I have been with the same partner for the past few months, who is STD-free. Is it possible I could be seeing symptoms from being withs someone else that are only appearing now? Or could this be something different than an STD?

Also, they do not hurt or itch at all.

Hello,
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).

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 persists then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
