About a week ago I noticed a large pimple like sore about 6 inches above my penis which has taken over 4 weeks and is still healing. In addition - in my pubic area I have got this light red rash - small light red spots that are not raised and do not itch.
I am in a managomous marraige for 10 years with no other contact with the exception of a doctor that did a testicular exam about 4 months ago without a glove on (never using him again!)
Any idea what this could be? Herpes?
Given only a written description of a âlarge pimple-like soreâ and âsmall light red spots that are not raised and do not itch in the pubic areaâ, it is very hard to diagnose the condition on your skin. You could be experiencing a skin inflammation but the cause is still undetermined (infection, irritation or allergy). You can consult a dermatologist for a correct diagnosis and proper treatment.
