Single Lump On Shaft On Penis

Hey I noticed a bump on the shaft of my penis after masturbating yesterday. Is is a medium size bump about 3-4mm and is pretty hard. It is on the right hand side of my shaft in the middle of it. It is sore when i touch it and it kinda has the look of a zit with the slightest of white on the top. when i left the skin of the area around it i can get under it so it is only attached to the skin. I was wondering the best way to treat this and or a time line that it may go away.

One of the possibilities for your symptoms is folliculitis. Keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Avoid any kind of cosmetics. Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment are also useful. In case the symptoms persist then oral antibiotics and incision and drainage may be needed. Please consult a dermatologist in that case.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
