I'm panicking please help me: Penis Rash

Hi good evening, Im 18, 5 feet in height. I have a few of these rash in the shaft of my penis and my testicles before. But now, its spreading and im panicking. Our place is currently in lockdown and its very hard to go to a hospital or a clinic.


I never had sex with anyone but I do masturbate like 4-5 times a week. They feel like small bumps and they dont hurt but they itch sometimes and im worried because they are spreading. Can u help me any home made treatments.

Here are some pics i got

Does it itch?  Try not to panic.  There are different things that can cause a rash on the penis and they are not emergencies or super serious.  So, stay calm.  Balanitis comes to mind.  https://www.webmd.com/sexual-conditions/rash-on-penis#1  This can happen due to hygiene believe it or not. If you touched something with your hand and then touched your penis or if your penis touched it itself, you could have contact dermatitis. You could even just have psoriasis.  This article gives guidance about when to call your doctor and they include if the rash is painful, has blisters, is spreading very quickly, red streaks down your penis.  Any of that going on?  Otherwise, here in the states, doctors are using telemedicine.  I would call your primary care doctor and talk to them.  Explain the situation.  They may call something in for you and you can just make what is called an 'essential' trip to the pharmacy OR it can be delivered.

Hi! Thanks for the reply, the small bumps doesnt hurt but yes they do itch sometimes. I need to put baby powder to stop the itch (Idk if thats good or bad)Its been 3 weeks and I didnt mind it at firsr because it started with a bump or two then now its composed of like 5 pimple-sized bumps and like 5-10 smaller bumps. Not on the head of the penis but on the shaft and balls. I would like to ask if there are any home-aid. I can do atm since I cannot yet access medical experts :((

Balanitis is on the head of your penis, so that's not it.

When you are masturbating, do you use a cream or lotion, or anything for a lubrication? Have you recently tried something new? This could be an allergic reaction, or clogged pores from that.

It could be a fungal infection, as GuitarRox said, or contact dermatitis.

Let the area be for a couple of days, see what happens, and follow the instructions in that article on when to call the doctor.

Helllo! Thanks for the reply, the small bumps doesnt hurt but they do itch sometimes. I dont use lubricants with masturbating and Ive abstained for almost a week now.  I needed to put baby powder to stop the itch (Idk if thats good or bad). It started 3 weeks ago, I didnt mind it at first because it was only a bump or two but now its composed of like 5 pimple-sized bumps and like 5-10 smaller bumps. Not on the head of the penis but on the shaft and balls. I would like to ask if there are any home-aid I can do atm since I cannot yet access medical experts :((
I wouldn't use baby powder, but can you do a telemedicine appt with a doctor? Lots of doctors are doing that now.

Google Fordyce spots and see if that is what you are seeing.
