Subject: kate are u there? problem
Posted by: Super six

Kate I wanted to ask you , my hubby gets a pimple on his inner thigh near his penis, sometimes on his penis. Some of them are like growths (white mucus) inside. Do you have any advise on this. Sorry for the description but I trust what you say and you have a mature way of thinking.

If it was once or twice I wouldnt worry, but if its happening frequently I think you should firstly consult a pharmacist, they are usually pretty good with these things without having the added expense of going to the doc. They'll probably recommend a cream, if that doesnt work, then he should go to your gp.

Super six- Kate is not a doctor and even though you find her advice mature (ahem), I still think the best thing is to get to a doctor for a proper diagnosis of this problem. Otherwise rather post to the cyberdoc.
Anyway, good luck, I hope you seek professional advice and consult a doctor.

Dear Super Six,
You must have a dr look at this - it could be a genital wart, or molluscum contagiosum ( which looks like a pimple with a white thingie in the middle) or it could just be infection of the little glands of the penis. The treatment for these things differ and the penis is a delicate organ - I would not just put on any creams. He may need an antibiotic to drink especially as this is coming back all the time.
