Post If u have a penis, read this and help!!

I have the curse of having clearly visible sebaceous glands on my member(penis). You wouldn't have a clue what it's like to have this problem.
I've seen doctors about this problem and they all say the same old crap about it being "normal". They all don't understand how depressing and imbarassing this problem is.
I need options. How (from the least to most outrageous) can i remove these glands? I can have sex with these things. If ur a fellow man with a heart, please help me!

I thing most guys overreact to the whole thing. All guys have this. If your skin is darker, it may be more noticable but the bottom line is that no one really has any negative reaction to this from any girl.

Since I had no idea what you guys were talking about, I did a search and this is what came up:

Sebaceous glands: the skin of the genitals has lots of small sebaceous glands, which produce an oily substance, and can become enlarged and look like small, yellowish spots. They can also become blocked and infected (like a 'common' spot that you might get on your face or neck).

Pearly pink papules: if you have rows of tiny slivers of skin around the head of the penis, these might be 'pearly pink papules', which are normal skin structures that are present in 30% of men.

Genital warts: which are a virus infection. These are caught by having sex with someone who has genital warts. They can look like small, skin-coloured cauliflowers.

Lymphocele: this can look like a firm, worm-like structure just below the head of the penis. It can occur after sex and will disappear on its own with time. It is caused by minor damage to the channels that drain lymph from the penis.

Some lumps and bumps are symptoms of general skin conditions, such as lichen planus (purplish areas), lichen sclerosus (white or red areas) or psoriasis.

VERY RARELY, lumps and bumps on the genitals can be a symptom of syphilis.

If you have a blocked sebaceous gland, washing it gently in warm, salty water might soothe it until it clears on its own.

Most lumps and bumps are 'normal for you', and others will go away on their own. However, some of them might look like other lumps and will need to be treated - so it is best to get them 'checked out' by a doctor, especially if you haven't noticed them before and have had them for more than a few days.

If you have an untreated infection, it can damage your health and also that of your partner and anyone else you or they have sex with in the future.


Hope this helps!
