Is that right?

Customer: replied 19 days ago.
they look like pustules to me
Expert:  Dr Kay replied 19 days ago.

I have a feeling it can be monkeypox .But do not worry its a self-limiting condition and they will disappear in a few days.

Customer: replied 19 days ago.
Is there anything I can do to make them go quicker?
How many days does it last (roughly)?
Expert:  Dr Kay replied 19 days ago.

In case they increase in number then you might need to see a GP  or attending a GUM clinic might help.

Expert:  Dr Kay replied 19 days ago.

Can last for 5 to 7 days. Well take Vitamin C and Zinc tablet from Boots they will help you in combatting faster.

Customer: replied 19 days ago.
Is it normal for them to be on my penis as well as around my mouth?

I am reading online
Customer: replied 19 days ago.
It says it will spread to whole body and last 2-4 weeks!!!!
Customer: replied 19 days ago.
Is that correct?
Expert:  Dr Kay replied 19 days ago.

Yes, it can spread on other areas but it depends on your immune or defense sytem.

Expert:  Dr Kay replied 19 days ago.

More spots can come if defense is poor and it makes sense.

Customer: replied 19 days ago.
Okay...
Customer: replied 19 days ago.
How do they disappear? Wil they look worse or just die down?
Expert:  Dr Kay replied 19 days ago.

They should die down soon.
