Ask Dr. K

I see a small pimple-like thing just inside the head of my penis at edge of the urethra which is sometimes painful. Can you help with possible identification?

Painful lesions at the tip of the penis could be an herpes infection, yeast infection, infected hair follicle or gland, irritation from N-9 or lubricant, trauma or less likely, a syphilis infection.

Only a doctor can make a diagnosis after an examination. Get a check up!

To your health,
Dr. K
