Blister on tip of penis, not painful until i take a leak

Edited , 2 users are following.

i have 3 of these blister things, they are not painful unless touched or pee gets on them, I'm not circumcised, and they are on the tip and under the skin.

i had rough sex with my girlfriend and thought it was that but after 2 days these appeared.

she also told me that she was a bit uncomfortable a few days before and could have had a yeast infection.

any ideas what these could be and if i should worry? went to a doctor here in peru but they didn't seem to have a clue and just wanted to give me an injection. difficult being stuck here with the language barrier too.

anyway, anyone any ideas? thanks!

    Hi Haswood,

    The commonest cause of painful genital ulceration is genital herpes. Not sure what treatments are available in Peru, but go to a pharmacist/drugstore and ask them for aciclovir tablets, 400mg three times a day for 5 days. Genital herpes in Spanish is "herpes genital".

    The differential diagnosis include chancroid and syphilis, but these STDs are relatively uncommon and if you've been in a mutually monogamous relationship with your partner, highly unlikely.

      some good news, went to get check and had a swab taken in the lab here and it's just an infection, figured I should update incase anyone else see the post with the same condition.

      such a relif! was so down and depressed about it. so lesson for everyone, just go get checked 😃

    this is almost 100% herpes please have them swabbed while the sores are still visible. they can prescribe you medication to make transmission less likely.
