Question: pimples around the pubic area

 ESS23 - Sun Sep 02, 2007 6:19 pm

Hi there, I am 23 year old Male.
I have had these red pimples/rash with white heads all around my pubic area and a few on the bottom of my penis shaft they do not itch or neither are they painful.
I have had this for almost 4 months i have been tested for stds and came out negative.
the rash hasnt spread either, its just there and wont go away. At first i thought it was herpes but it doesnt pain or burn, my partner had a yeast infection so maybe i thought i have that.
Please advice
Thank you

User avatar I wonder if this could be molloscum contagiosum. If so they will eventually heal on their own or can be removed. See your dermatologist for an accurate diagnosis. There are other possibilities as well such as genital warts or a benign condition such as pearly penile papules, a benign condition. Only your doctor can determine the actual problem by examination.
