Dermatology - Penile blemishs

Hello,

I'm a 29 y/o Caucasian.

4 days ago I noticed a small white bump for the first time on my penile head.

This morning after intercourse a red blemish appeared next my penile head opening.

Any suggestions or explanation?

Regards.

There are things callled penal perlies that are similar to what your describing and then it got irritated from sex and caused a friction burn. See a doc if your concerned but it doesnot appear herpes related.

Hi, since herpes sores rarely appear on the head and are not white, what your describing is not suggestive of herpes at all.
