Response from Men's Sexual Health:

Hello Brad, thanks for getting in touch. The colour of your penis head is fairly normal to change different shades off purple/pink, depending on many things, such as temperature and how sexually excited you are, this is due to the amount of blood flowing to that part of your body, and this is most likely reason behind this. Regarding the small yellow spots, the most likely answer is that these are your glans, again perfectly normal, some men they are more visiable, others not as noticeable. However i'm not sure what is causing your foreskin being red, sometimes it can get a bit inflamed if you have been masterbating/wanking too much, but it could also be a sign of a Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI), you haven't mentioned if you have had sex, and if you have, if it was unsafe (without a condom) if this is the case then there is a small chance that is what you may have picked up, if you have hand unsafe sex its best to book an appointment at the Swindon GUM clinic at the hospital, it is confidential so you parents won't find out, and if you need help we can make an appointment for you, and even come along with you if you need the support. I hope this has eased your concern, many lads feel concerned about there penis, having not seen others to compare it too, but they come in all shapes ans sizes so don't feel yours doesnt look nice. Please do get back in touch if you feel you want further advice.

Bumps of smegma

I was just wondering whether it's possible to get hard bumps of smegma underneath the foreskin on the glans. I masturbate regularly and the bumps are easyilly seen through the foreskin when my penis is erect. They're mostly on the underside of my glans. Any clarification would be appreciated.

Response from Men's Sexual Health:

Smegma is a natural secretion,produced by both men and women. This cheesy, sebaceous matter collects between the glans of the penis and the forskin, and is entirely normal. By washing your genitals at least once a day, making sure to retract the foreskin and get rid of any smegma, you will help keep your penis healthy and odour free. With daily washing, smegma will wash away. It will not remain in a hard lump stuck to your penis. It is likely what you see is an entirely normal condition called 'pearly penile papules,' which are small bumps that often form around the rim of the glans. These should be painless and benign, but if you have any worries about it, book an appointment to see your GP who should be able to put you mind at ease. If you have had unprotected sex, you should go to your local sexual health clinic to rule out the possibility of any STI's. If you would like more help with this, please give us a call: 01380 801951.

Response from Men's Sexual Health:

There many causes of testicular pain, some of which require immediate attention. As you have been experiencing this dull pain over a couple of days, it is most likely not due to trauma or torsion (twisting) of a testical. One cause of testicular pain is Epididymitis (testicle infection). This is an inflammation of the epididymis, usually due to an infection. It is the most common cause of testicular pain in men older than 18 years. It can be diagnosed with a urine sample and usually treated with antibiotics. However, this is normally accompanied by swelling, which you do not mention. As there are many possible causes, most easy to diagnose and treat, it is highly recommended you seek advice from your GP. If you would like further advice, or would prefer to use a local Sexual Health Clinic, please contact us. All calls are treated with strictest confidence.

I have not noticed any inflammation but thats not to say there isnt any.



I am currently taking Isotretinoin for my acne, in the leaflet that came with it they say that one of the undesirable effects could be that Leukoytes, Cells in the blood involved in fighting infection can decrease in numbers therefore making me more prone to infections.

Response from Men's Sexual Health:

Taking medications can often have side effects, and it may well have contributed to the problem. When it comes to the possibility of testicular infection, if that is what you have, if left untreated, it can worsen. It is highly advisable you speak to your GP, to diagnose or rule out illness, especially if you find any further changes. It will be interesting to find out if the medication you are taking has contributed!

Response from Men's Sexual Health:

Unfortunately from the descriptions that you have given, it is not possible for us to determine what is happening, as this would take a more detailed examination, which we are unable to do.





We would strongly suggest that you either visit your own Doctor or your local GUM Clinic, where they will be able to undertake the necessary examinations to identify what is happening.





It is not uncommon for people to become highly concerned when they have problems in or around there genitalia, but please be assured that all Doctors and Clinic staff will treat you with respect and this will be confidential.





You have already taken the first steps by being tested for both Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea,which you say have come back as negative, so you need to now take the next step.

Response from Men's Sexual Health:

Hi, thank you for getting in touch. It is difficult to diagnose what you and your partner have, and it may be that you don't both have the same infection. There are a few Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI's) that can cause pain when urinating (such as chlamydia) , and there are also some that can cause spots/rash/blisters (such as herpes), however it is possible it is not an STI and its some other form of urinary infection. I would suggest both you and your partner either visit your GP or local sexual health clinic and get a proper diagnosis and seek treatment. Leaving things like this alone is not advised, even if the symptoms go away, we advice you to make an appoinment as soon as you are free to do so. If you are local to Swindon and would like more support, an appoinment to be made for you, or someone to accompany you to the health clinic then please get back in touch.

Response from Men's Sexual Health:

Hello and thanks for getting in touch with MSH. The one thing that it could be are the white lumps on your glans. It can be entirely normal to have painless, small white bumps on your penis, especially on your glans, most typically around the corona, the rounded base of the glans. It is clear you have tried to figure out what these lumps are and not found a single, specific condition that fits your case exactly. There can be small variations in symptoms, thus giving the appearance of something different. They are also known as Pearly Penile Papules, often abbreviated to PPP, are found around the head of the penis. Sometimes the foreskin needs to be pulled back in order to see them. The papules are small, smooth spots that are white or skin-coloured and 1mm-3mm across. They will often appear in small rows a bit like a string of pearls, hence the name. The good news is that penile papules are absolutely nothing to worry about as they pose no health risks and will not cause any pain or irritation. In fact, they are very common, with an estimated 20% of the male population developing them. There is no known cause of PPP.



Although they are not infectious and aren’t related in any way to sexual activity and personal hygiene, the papules can still be worrying for those who don’t know what they are and who may mistake them as an STI. Men with PPP should not pick them or attempt to squeeze them, as this could lead to scarring and infection. It is possible to have the papules removed for cosmetic reasons, which dermatologists may do by using a CO2 laser to vaporise the spots. This does not involve any injections in the penis as an anaesthetic cream can be used and men will be fully healed within one to two weeks. It is important to remember that despite this being a safe and effective procedure, removal is not obligatory. It is often opted for by people who are finding that the papules are affecting their self-confidence.



To be 100% sure, we would suggest booking an appointment with your GP, Sexual health clinic to rule out anything else, then you will know 100% what they are. We hope this has helped ease your concerns, and if possible please let us know the result of your doctors visit so we know if we were correct in our assessment

Response from Men's Sexual Health:

It sounds as if you have prominent sebaceous glands on the skin of your ball sac and penis. These are very common and rather like "whiteheads" which lots of guys get on the face when they have acne. They are normal and you don't need to do anything. If any of them change you might want to get your doctor to check this.

Response from Men's Sexual Health:

Hello and thank you for contacting us. Having unprotected sex does put you at risk of catching a sexually transmitted infection, HIV and pregnancy. Going home and washing and masturbating will have little to no effect. It's impossible for us to say if the spots/pimples are anything to do with the unprotected sex, but nearly all Sexually Transmitted Infections take much longer to show any signs/symptoms, some don't even show any. But yes you will be at risk due to the simple fact you had unprotected sex, and that it was with a prostitute increases your risk, so we would encourage you to go to your local GUM clinic, or GP, Doctor to get a full screen test and refrain from having sex with anyone else till you take the test and get the results, as if you have caught something you risk passing it on to someone else. If you need any condoms in the future, please be aware you can get them free from our website if you live in the Swindon area. If you need any further advice please do get back in touch.

Response from Men's Sexual Health:

Hello thanks for getting in touch with us. If you never have had sex, then it is not possible that it is a sexually transmitted infection. The fact that you have not had sex, or masterbated for the last month, it could simply be your body experiencing a moment where it is naturally releasing some seminal fluid, pre cum. Masterbation is completely normal and healthy and could help this from occuring in the future. You may want to visit your GP/Doctor to ensure there is no underlying reason this is occuring, to be sure completely. We hope this has helped with your issue.

Penis worries

I have been worried about this for a long time, I have a large amount of spots on the base of my penis but the amount of spots decreases the higher up my penis they go. I also have a few spots at the base of my penis' head I don't know if I should be concerned about this or not? I also seem to have a residue that remains on my bellend after masturbation is this due to not cleaning up properly?

Response from Men's Sexual Health:

Without seeing your spots it is difficult to be sure. You say that your spots have been present for a long time, which probably means they are not something serious, but if you are worried ask your doctor to check them. However all of us have small glands in the skin which produce the natural skin oils. These are often quite prominent on the penis – they can look a bit like the “whiteheads” that you can see on the face of someone who has acne. Occasionally they can get inflamed like acne and produce a red spot with a little pus. If this is what you have, they are normal and harmless. The other kind of spot that is very common is a little ring of tiny white spots just below the head of the penis – called pearly penile papules – which are also normal and harmless. 





Everyone should gently wash there cock and bell end each day, especially under the foreskin.
