Unknown Genital Rash
Dec 22, 2001

I have a very peculiar rash on the shaft of my penis. It is painless and colorless. I just have a bunch of small bumps. I have had it for three years. I thought it would just eventually go away, but it did't. Please advise. I am too embarased to see a doctor.

Response from Dr. Feinberg

It sounds like thay may be genital warts, but there's no way to know for sure without being able to see them. See a doctor right away-- there is good, painless topical medication for warts that works well, in my experience, when the warts are still fairly small.

Help Im really scared
