Bumps But No Sex

Published: January 31, 2014
Dear TeenHealthFX,

I have these white bumps that keep spreading and are around my mouth. The doctor said it was yeast and gave me a cream but they keep spreading and I think it could be HPV.

PS I have never had sex


Dear Bumps But No Sex,

TeenHealthFX cannot give you a definitive diagnosis over the internet. The only way to reduce your anxiety regarding this issue is to return to your doctor and share your concerns. The doctor can reexamine you and run any necessary test to give you a conclusive diagnosis. 

Penile and scrotal skin is different than the skin on the rest of your body. It often looks bumpy, lumpy and uneven especially on the shaft. The penis has thin, sensitive skin, which is prone to whatever ailment the skin can get. This includes eczema, irritation from rubbing and yeast infections. 

It is also extremely important that you follow through on the medication instructions as prescribed. Sometimes a person will think they are free of his/her symptoms and stop the medication prematurely causing the problem to return.   

Get yourself checked out again as soon as possible. It will relieve your anxiety and address your medical issues as well.
