Hello -- yesterday I noticed a hard lump area right at the botton of my penile shaft, right where my pubic hair area is. I immediately went to the clinic in fears this was an STD (like syphilis?) as I have been having protected vaginal sex with someone, but was concerned the area this lump is in is not necessarily protected by a condom as it may not have rolled down that far. Anyway, the doctor who saw me didn't think it was an STD and diagnosed it as a cyst, possibly from an ingrown hair that was large enough so that he prescribed doxy for 5 days. He suggested washing the area with antibacterial soap and doing warm compresses on the lump while taking the antibiotics. The area is large, raised with borders largely matching the rest of the skin, doesn't hurt, but is hard and round with what appears to be a sort of whitehead maybe in the middle, surrounded by public hair, literally at the bottom shaft of my penis.
Is there some other cream or substance that can be suggested to put on this to speed up healing? I have used witch hazel as I read that can be beneficial. Otherwise, do you think it is best to let it be and let the antibiotics (and nature) take its course? Trying to get on with this as soon as I can.
Thanks in advance.
