There is a small red patch on my penis that has been there for over 8 months now. It has been treated twice as irritation, but neither times have I kept up with the treatments as it seemed to be doing nothing. When the skin is stretched, two very small bumps can be seen within the red patch. There is no pain or discomfort. Do you think this was correctly diagnosed as irritation or couldit besomething else? I am 18 years old and sexualy active. Thanks.
Issues and concerns like this must be seen by a physician, such as dermatologist in person so that they may have a visual of the area, consult and then treat. I highly recommend you see a doctor again and continue the prescribed treatments the entire length of time, if the problem persists contact your doctor and let them know. Best skin care wishes.
