    What should you do about a pimple on the penis?

    Pimples can develop on the penis, although they are more common elsewhere on the body. Pimples are usually harmless, and it may not be a cause for concern if one develops on the penis.
    Pimples, however, can sometimes resemble the symptoms of other conditions, such as a sexually transmitted disease or STD, and so it is important to know if a growth on or around the penis needs medical attention.
    This article will discuss other signs to look out for that could indicate an STD, methods for treating a pimple on the penis, and when to see a doctor.

    What is a pimple?

    Pimples develop when the oil glands on the surface of the skin are blocked by oil, dead skin cells, or other debris.
    This blockage can trigger an immune response, causing the area to become inflamed and swollen.
    The resulting small lump is known as a pimple, and pimples can occur anywhere on the body.

    Signs of an STD

    Shaving, poor hygiene, and tight-fitting clothes may increase the likelihood of a pimple appearing.
    Pimples appear as small, round bumps on the skin's surface. The base is usually red or flesh colored.
    The tip of a pimple can either be white (whiteheads), black (blackheads) or the same color as the base, depending on the type of debris that has caused the build up. Some pimples also contain pus.
    Factors that increase the likelihood of a pimple include:
    • tight-fitting clothes
    • humidity
    • excessive sweating
    • shaving
    • poor hygiene
    • oily skin
    Being aware of these factors can help to determine the likelihood of it being a straightforward pimple that has developed or something else.
    Pimples can occur regardless of sexual activity, which also helps to narrow down the cause of a bump.
    It is possible that an STD is causing them if someone is sexually active and other symptoms also occur.
    There are three STDs, which we give details of here, with symptoms that could be mistaken for pimples.

    Genital warts

    A primary symptom of genital warts is the growth of small, flesh-white colored bumps on the shaft, or head of the penis.
    The tips of warts can be shaped like cauliflowers and can vary greatly in size. It is also possible for genital warts to appear on areas surrounding the penis, such as the scrotum or inner thigh.
    Genital warts often disappear on their own, but can be easily treated with creams or freeze and heat therapy.
