Need advice on the 1 pimple on shaft of uncircumcised penis

Posted , 5 users are following.

I dont know how to explain so I am using the term pimple.

I am sexually active with only 1 female partner though few times I had sex without condoms.


I dont feel anything with regards to the 1 pimple when I urinate, masturabate, have sex etc.

Past Observations: (I cant remember the past events 100% accurately)

I may have noticed it few months back when it may have been some what smaller.

My first reaction was to scratch it with my nail but I felt pain (when I scratched it with my nail). So I left it alone.


Now the pimple got my attention again. (But I avoid scratching / touching the pimple)

Please advise.

    I think it's probably just a small sebaceous cyst.  I think it's harmless and may just fix itself, but if you want it removed, I'd probably let a doctor do it.  You could either see your GP, or if you're in the UK, you could go to a genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinic - google "GUM clinic near me" for details.

    If you could update this thread and tell us what the doctors say, it would be appreciated.  Good luck.

    These links may help, though the second is written for doctors:

    Hi, I know this won't help you in any way but I think you could help me. I just want to know how to attach pictures on your posts. I would really appreciate it if you could help me with this as I have something that I want to check out. Thank you very much.

      You need to be on a PC or laptop with a large window to add pictures.  If you are, then you should see some extra icons towards the top right of where you type, and the right hand icon (which I think is supposed to look like the sun over hills) will add images.

      The pic I've attached here shows the icons:

    It looks like a skin tag to me. Though i will advice be careful because your are uncircumcised ypur prone to more infections and stds. Wash the foreskin thoroughly though i do suggest to get tested for a piece of mind

    just to give an update. 

    What Happened:

    While taking hot shower on 14th Feb 2018, I just saw a white dot (like whitehead) outside on the skin which came out/ burst on its own & washed away. ( I did not try to squeeze or anything)

    What I did:

    As it burst on its own, I thought may be I can get rid of left over white stuff (like the size of dot) which was still inside the sebaceous cyst. I tried to squeeze out 2-3 times but it didnt come out .So I just left it alone.

    What am doing Now:

    Generally I just wash penis with (Naturally Derived Hand Wash ) in hot shower.

    But now after drying it I am applying 2 drops of Povidone-iodine solution on the sebaceous cyst.

    Providing photos for evaluation that was taken on 16/02/2018.

    I do not feel/ have any kind of issue with it after the shower incident. Plus my overall health is also ok.

    Please advise.
