|Scab on Penis
Jan 14, 2009
My husband has had a scab on his penis for quite some time now. it will heal up and then randomly appear again. im starting to worry becuase it seems to be getting larger and in more areas on his shaft. he said its probably from him scratching through his pants or whatever the case may be. should i be worried about at STD or is this something common that happens without the risk of an STD?

Yes, this could be a sexually related disease. Whether it is or not, since it is a recurrent problem, he needs to have it evaluated without delay. Have him see his primary care doctor or a dermatologist.
