GLANDS ON PENIS
HI DOC!
THE GLANDS AROUND THE EDGE OF THE HEAD OF MY PENIS
ARE SWOLLEN. I DON'T FEEL COMFORTABLE DROPPING MY
" DRAWERS " FOR MY GP. IS THERE MEDICATION I CAN BUY TO REMEDY
THIS PROBLEM WITHOUT A PRESCRIPTION?
PLEASE DOC, I CAN'T STAND THE THOUGHT OF LETTING MY
GP EXAMINE NY "TOOLS".

THANX.

Shy, it sounds like it might be due to a superficial fungal infection or pearly penile papules. You can buy an antifungal cream like Normospor® and apply it twice a day for a week and there is no treatment for the penile papules. If you mail me at CyberDoc@mweb.co.za I’ll send you a photo so that you can confirm the diagnosis yourself. Good luck.
