Red spots on the head of my penis (Page 3)

Bumps
Had this problem on and off for the last few years, been to the doctors and get checked regularly for STD's all come back negative. The first time i freaked out and screwed at the GF accusing her of giving me an STD........turns out that it wasn't so don't take it out on her and avoid a massive row. It seems to be for me occurs about once or twice a year, usually after a lot of sex with my partner you know them weekend long staying in bed sessions, seems it could be relating to constant friction red bumps will appear, now whether this is a coincidence as it doesn't happen all the time i don't know, more likely explanation is that it is a yeast infection which usually occurs if you catch your misses at a certain point of her ovulation as they can potentially more likely have some kind of yeast infection (so I'm told) even if they wash with fem wash. I found over the counter thrush creams help, within a week the red dots have gone. Also in severe cases you can use anti-biotic / corticosteroid creams (providing your not allergic) but do not use this often otherwise bacterial infections can become resistant. I'm not a doctor, but washing twice a day with feminine anti-bacterial wash, keeping the area clean, avoid contact with harsh / perfumed soaps. This is just my advice guys, within 5-7 days my symptoms go for another spell. I have also accounted for the possibility of obtaining it from bleach used by my maid in the sink, shower and toilet but have no proof of this so i can only recommend a treatment. Hope this helps guys. P.S this only occurs if i don't use a Condom, as i believe harsh sex, (friction) leaves you open to gain the yeast infection.

Pearly Penile Papules, often abbreviated to PPP, are found around the head of the penis. Sometimes the foreskin needs to be pulled back in order to see them. The papules are small, smooth spots that are white or skin-coloured and 1mm-3mm across. They will often appear in small rows a bit like a string of pearls, hence the name. The good news is that penile papules are absolutely nothing to worry about as they pose no health risks and will not cause any pain or irritation. In fact, they are very common, with an estimated 20% of the male population developing them. There is no known cause of PPP.

Although they are not infectious and aren’t related in any way to sexual activity and personal hygiene, the papules can still be worrying for those who don’t know what they are and who may mistake them as an STI. Men with PPP should not pick them or attempt to squeeze them, as this could lead to scarring and infection. It is possible to have the papules removed for cosmetic reasons, which dermatologists may do by using a CO2 laser to vaporise the spots. This does not involve any injections in the penis as an anaesthetic cream can be used and men will be fully healed within one to two weeks. It is important to remember that despite this being a safe and effective procedure, removal is not obligatory. It is often opted for by people who are finding that the papules are affecting their self-confidence.

While PPP are harmless, it is always advisable to have any lumps or bumps in your genital area checked out by a doctor just in case.
