Mosquito bites on my penis.....

Well I went camping and somehow got presumably mosquito bites on the skin of my penis.

It is more to the top of my penis.

Should I be worried?

It's not winter everywhere Tommy. In SE Queensland, Australia today was 87F and the minumum last night was 73F. It's often hotter in the southern states and it's always hotter in the north and west. Perhaps he's a southern hemisphere lad and he slept outside in the heat.
Perhaps he should use some mild antiseptic to stop them getting infected otherwise it shouldn't be any more to worry about than other mozzie bites.
Cheers,

Please don't laugh, I am serious.

I live in a tropical part of Australia and it is basically summer all year round.

I camped in the rainforest. I was wearing boardies and boxers. So I guessed it squeezed in.

Boy, you have to be miserable having them there. I don't think you should be worried unless you start to feel sick.

Re: Mosquito bites on my penis.....

Pretty much as I thought. Are you sure it's not leeches if you were in the rainforest? I once woke up with one in my mouth, when sleeping on the ground under a tent fly. It was gross but didn't do any harm. Another thing you can get in north Queensland is scrub itch, caused by tiny mite larvae. You get them from sitting down on logs or on the ground, not usually when you have something to sit or lie on though. They are not harmful but you get lots of raised, red, very itchy bites. We used to get them round the jock elastic lines at our waist and legs. Rid keeps them at bay but you have to remember to put it on at the beginning of each day.
It's probably mozzie bites as you stated though and that should not be a bother.
