Painful red bumps
I noticed last night that I had 2 small (2-3mm?) reddish bumps on my shaft - one near the base and the other about halfway up the dorsal side. They are painful to touch, like a nasty zit or something. I think they have been contributing to some of my perceived post-workout pain, but weren’t visible until last night.
My first hunch is that these are some kind of pimple, blocked pore, or perhaps irritated follicle. Perhaps the lotion I am using for jelqing is clogging pores or just irritating the skin, despite the fact that I shower immediately after. I am disinclined to believe it’s something like genital warts as I’ve been married for 15 years and, as far as I know, we have been exclusive. I looked at some pics of genital warts online and it seems to look nothing like those (though, apparently they can come in all kinds of shapes, colors and sizes).
Anyone else have similar experience? I am going to take a few days off and see what happens. I’d love to hear from other guys who have had this, particular if turned out to just be some kind of skin irritation.
