Hi there, Just last week I has some small red circular areas break out on the head of my penis. The are not itchy or sore in any way they. Need Help.

Here are some. ..: Without a direct look after detailed Hx, it's hard to come up a right Dx.

A combo of Hx stressing the features & sequence of events over time + physical exam + tests (rarely needed for such) will bring about a right diagnosis for reasonable Rx/ care/ counseling.

Here are some. ..: Without further detail of the affected area and medical background, it's hard to offer an accurate assessment. At least, these sploches seem benign, non-urgent, and non- progressive. But for long term care, it's reasonable to get pro-evaluation and counseling so to decide if they're long-foreskin-related or not. If so, circumcision may be required. So, see urologist timely. ...Read more
