L planus? Psoriasis?: As a guess, you might have lichen planus or psoriasis. Both are harmless. Google them for photos to compare with your penile rash. But there are ohter possibilities as well. There's no point in trying to know the cause by written description or online searching. Show it to your doctor, or ideally a dermatologist.

Difficult to know: At your age a recurring but resolving lesion on the glans may be nothing to worry about. However, this is something that has to be looked at to know. It could require nothing or a topical medication but could require further testing and even a biopsy. No reason to risk a problem. Get it checked out by your pcp, a urologist or a dermatologist.

Here are some. ..: Herpetic lesion wouldn't heal up in 1-2 days, but runs its certain course. So, the reported lesion may not be associated with HSV infection. But if your lifestyle and sexual practice are in high-risk category for contracting STD, go to Doc for testing and counseling soon for current concern and for future prevention. At this time, I wouldn't guess yes or no for being infected.

I'm 17 and I have found a red spot on my penis?

Just watch...: The described red spot might have been there all along your life, but just recently noticed. If so, just a tiny harmless vessel cluster, or a mole. So, if not hurting, don't pick on it and just watch for next few months to see if it changes in size, color, height, etc. Of course, if still in doubt, see Doc timely for verification since it's hard to derive an accurate Dx without a direct look at it
