See urologist...: What described strongly suggests psoriasis of glans penis. Applying 1% Hydrocortisone cream may ease but not cure. Do you have similar lesions around knees, elbows, buttocks, or ... If further in doubt, go to see urologist after recording the feature and degree of the related symptoms with their detailed sequence of events so he/she can assess and analyze to deduce reasonable answers for you.
