Hi about 3 months ago I had a tiny(1-2 mm)bright red pimple

Customer Question

Hi about 3 months ago I had a tiny(1-2 mm)bright red pimple like dot on my penis tip just on the rim.It seemed to become more of a blemish after a few days (mabye because I was examining it all the time),I put sudocreme on it but nothing happened,it just stayed the same,mabye faded and came back a bit.After a few days I just left it alone and it disappeared in about 4 weeks.A couple of days ago a tiny red dot came back and I'm now worried the same will happen again,the dot is not raised,sore it's just on my mind more than anything.Any suggestions what it could be?
Thank you

This appears to be a small, early genital wart

I would see your GP.

There are a variety of treatments available

You can freeze it or use acid

It should be easy to take care of
