I am a 23 year old male with skin colored bumps on the rim of the penis. I have noticed them over the last 2-3 years. I am sexually active but only with one partner and most of our contact is protected. The bumps were there even before the first time I had sex. I am worried these could be genital warts and I could transmit them to my partner. Kindly advise.

Hi, Your history is suggestive of a diagnosis of pearly penile papules. This is a harmless condition seen in many males. It is not infectious or progressive and hence can be left alone. For patients who are keen to pursue treatment from a cosmetic point of view the bumps can be removed with a laser by a dermatologist, however they invariably recur in a few months-years. Hence I advise my patients to leave them alone. Genital warts are highly unlikely given the fact that the bumps are there fro ...

I wear dentures & my liabial frenum is swollen and hurts. My son had a mouth infections 2 months ago & our dentist gave him a prescriptions for metronidazole. I still have 12 left, can I take them

Denture fitting and occlusal balance should be checked to avoid trauma. Dentures must be adequately polished and glazed, as pores increase denture contamination by oral microorganisms Good oral hygiene is mandatory.

Topical application of antiseptic is advisable ...

Hi, I am 23 Year female. I had DNC last year in 5th month of pregnancy. I had pus cells in the first month, used anti -biotics at that time. Now, i have been confirmed pregnancy. Again i have 1-2 PUS CELLS, & ESR is HIGH. I am having dry cough also now. What could be the reason? Is it due to infections transmitted in sex with my husband? How should i take medication?

Hi!! 1-2 pus cells in urine is no cause for concern as if it is more than 10 pus cells/high power field,it is of consequence. Esr high can be due to the cough that you are having.ESR is a very non specific indicator of infection in the body and can be raised even in normal pregnancy No need for antibiotics for the dry cough,you can take lozenges uptil 2 a day or antihistaminics like avil, which is safe in pregnancy,if the cough is irritating to the extent that it is disturbing your sleep or othe ...

Thank you for the information. Just brown color of the inner side of the foreskin is not indicative of any disease. Only if this discoloration is associated with any redness, itching, discharge, blistering or tightness of the foreskin is a pathology suspected. If you have any of these please detail them in your history. If not no treatment is required. Your wife’s discharge needs to be evaluated by a gynaecologist. The commonest causes of white discharge in women are Bacterial Vaginosis ...

I recently had a period that started very light and evened out to a normal flow by the end but i experienced no usually period cramps, headaches, pain and what not. Then 2 days after my period ended i started experiencing a light pinkish discharge. Its normal in consistency compared to my usually ovulation discharge but the color is something I've never seen before. I am sexually active. Is this normal? or should be alarmed?

Hi there. It won’t harm if you will go to the nearest gynecologist so that he or she may conduct a pelvic exam. Pinkish discharge may mean a lot of things. It can be normal like ovulation, or can be an anatomic problem like polyp. But I think it is perfectly ok that you did not get cramps or any premenstrual symptoms. ...
