Question: Red Bump / Scab on head of penis


 bmoredude - Sun Feb 24, 2008 9:10 pm

I occasionally get a couple of red bumps on my penis head which look almost like burst blood vessels. They scab over and eventually dissapear. I have been tested before for STD's and the tests have come back negative. I do not know what causes these or how to get rid of them. If I remove the scab, they bleed heavily. Is this something I need to worry about?

User avatar Hello -

If you've repeatedly tested negative for STDs then you need to see a dermatologist as soon as possible. This could be something quite serious and needs to be evaluated properly and in a timely manner.

Please follow up with us here. Good luck to you.
