I have had a tickle on the tip of my penis for 3 days. today I noticed little white spots and don't know what they are.

Dr. Cameron :

hello

Dr. Cameron :

welcome to the chat

Dr. Cameron :

Any discharge from your penis?

Dr. Cameron :

Any history of unprotected sex?

Dr. Cameron :

where are these spots?

Customer:

Hi. There is no discharge but I did have unprotected sex on Monday and it started after that. The spots are on the end of my penis and I noticed them only today when I pulled foreskin back a little.

Dr. Cameron :

are they around the crown of the penis? where the shaft meets the glans?

Customer:

Basically if I pull my fore skin back I can see the spots. There are no spots on my foreskin

Dr. Cameron :

well there are a few types of spots on the penis which are on the shaft, both of which are benign-

Dr. Cameron :

they are fordyce spots and penile papules

Dr. Cameron :

They are basically blocked glands.

The lady I had sex with had just started a contraception pill and she got something called a yeast reaction.

Dr. Cameron :

yeast infection?

Customer:

yes

Dr. Cameron :

do these seem like little lumps or are the plaque like?

Dr. Cameron :

are they itchy

Customer:

I don't understand the last question. They are just little white spots all over the top on my penis. They don't itch but tickle.

Dr. Cameron :

do the spots have body to them or are they flat

Customer:

There is no blood on them. Just flat tiny white spots

Dr. Cameron :

thank you

Dr. Cameron :

and they appeared after intercourse with your partner who has a yeast infection, correct?

Customer:

Yes. The tickling started 2 days ago so I think its after intercourse.

Dr. Cameron :

okay

Dr. Cameron :

well, it is possible for men to get a yeast infection which can be transmitted from the female

Dr. Cameron :

this is not technically a STD

Dr. Cameron :

treatment is really simple

Dr. Cameron :

over the counter antifungal like lotrmin or miconazole

Dr. Cameron :

pull your foreskin back when you wash and pee

Dr. Cameron :

wear loose fitting pants

Dr. Cameron :

and no more sex until her yeast infection resolves

Dr. Cameron :

you should put the cream on twice a day for 7 days

Customer:

Ok. Thankyou for your advice. I fell a lot more relaxed now.
