I have two small slighlty raised reddish purple pimples on the tip of my penis, and have had them for as long as i can remember.
They don't vary in size much, pretty much staying the same. A doctor told me a number of years ago that they were probably blood vessels, but that they could be warts, although unlikely.
I have had no problems with them and have had sex with my wife for years with no problems. Recently I read about a cream called Aldara for warts that said applying this cream 3 times a week could eliminate warts and that the sides effects were mild.
I thought i would order it and try it, thinking it couldn't hurt if it wasn't a wart. I applied the cream as instructed every other day for about 2 weeks ( 6 or 7 applications). After about two weeks I started developing a very red, painful spot just below the pimples underneath the penis head, as well as a spot on my scrotum on the same side. The lesions are very red, and sore with some sloughing it seems. One looks like a large herpes lesion(which I have never had there).
I stopped the application a week ago and the lesions don't appear to be improving. I applied hydrocotisone cream and have made an appointment with a dermatologist for one week from now.
Should I be concerned and see him sooner and is putting hydrocortisone ok for this? Will it clear on its own doing nothing if it is associated with the aldara, which I believe it is. It doesn't seem to be getting worse , but not much better either. Do you suggest any better ointment until i see the dermatologist? Please advise.
