Small dots forming at the top of glans. Is this herpes or balanitis?

Recommended Posts

Hi all. 
 

i noticed some small red dots around the top of my penis head / glans. 
 

ive had herpes scare in the past, but the tests I’ve ran (culture swab and blood) are negative. 
 

Now these dots formed and I’m wondering if it’s a secondary outbreak? 
 

does this look like herpes, balanitis, or something else? 
 

thank you.

Hey @Davrk8 that all looks pretty normal, I doubt its even yeast or bacteria. Suggest you'd need to see your doctor if you have concerns. Certainly no herpes concerns in light of the pic.

Looks like mild balanitis. If you are uncircumcised then thats normal every now and then due to accumulation of yeast and the irritation of the foreskin

thank you for the info. I am uncircumcised. I applied some clotrimazole cream during the last outbreak I noticed, which seem to do the trick (around a month ago).

But now, there new dots are appearing at a different location on the glans. Wasnt sure if balanitis can come back so soon or if it could be something else.
