Little white dots on penis shaft.


Posted by tonyfutbol

Hello. I am a 21 year old male. And I've noticed some really really small white tiny dots on the underside of my penis shaft and also other ones appearing on the top and sides..really tiny though.. They don't itch nor bleed. They are really fleshed colored except when you put them up with the light you can tell they are a bit whitesh. Back in April I went to go get checked for STD's and I was clean. And I noticed this spots in the 4th of July weekend in which was a very hot day and I went to use the bathroom and I had noticed that this spots showed! I am low in money so I cannot really see a doctor right about now. But I have done some search, and they don't look like pictures of warts nor herpes.  I'm really worried. But I mostly see them when I'm sweating. They kinda like get aroused. But when I'm not sweaty, the only way I can see them is if I look very closely and up with light.  I put my finger across and it feels a little rough, but not too much. Can anyone help me please??? I really need some information of what it could be. I don't think they are Fordyce spots cause they don't look like the pictures I've seen. PLEASE HELP! :(

Hello? Please help!! :(

So, firstly try not to panic. There's actually a good chance you don't have an STD. You said that you were tested in April but noticed the condition in July. Did you have sex during that interim period? If you did, did you use a condom? Was your partner tested? If you didn't have sex during that period then you you should focus on the time before your test. If you did have sex during that period, assuming you used a condom you significantly cut your risk for catching something. If you partner was tested and they also were negative, you would have not contracted anything from them.

 

Now assuming you didn't have sex since your last test, how long after your last sexaul partner did you wait before you were tested? Depending on the STI, it can take a few days to a few months to show. Most show within a week or two, especially those that are bacterial. 

 

There are a few conditions that sound like they could be similar. One is the instance of crabs, but you have no itching in the pubic area, nits, or the crabs themselves. Other STDs that cause bumps/ulcer/chancres are Syphilis, HPV, and Herpes. Syphilis is usually marked by a single sore called a  chancre that is usually firm, round, small and painless. When caught early it's easily treatable with antibiotics. HPV  causes gential warts (although it's usually asymptomatic), and the areas are palapable lumps or irregualrities of the skin, soft and moist pink or red swellings which can be raised or flat. There is no cure, but most people clear themselves of the virus is about two years. The first symptom of herpes usually is the most severe. It's usually marked by mild tingling and buring, watery blisters, low-grade fever, headace, generalized muscle aches and tendere, swollen lymph nodes. The blisters usually break down 24-72 hours after their appearance and leave ulcer like sores. There's a good chance none of this applies to what you're noticing because the descriptions are very far off.

 

As for skin conditions, it could be a wide range of different things. There are multiple cutaneous (conditions dealing with the skin) conditions that can cause slight irritation, or bumps under the skin. For example, the condition milium can be found on the genitalia and be mistaken for STD, but are keratin filled cysts. They usually go away on their own. There's also natural occurences that happepn, like pearly penile papules  (hirsuties papillaris genitalis) that are are natural, and pose no risk to a man's health. 

 

 Ultimately, the only person who's going to be able to tell you what it is, is your  doctor. They'll be able to look at it and either diagnose you on the spot, or take some culture of it to be looked at by the lab. Hopefully this shed more light on what it might be, and if you get the chance to go to the doctor you'll be slightly more informed. Good luck!
