White Patch On Glans

Examples are the thyroid gland which puts out thyroid hormone, or the ovary which makes estrogen, progesterone, etc. ...Read more

Hi, nearly 6 months now I have a brown (reddish) patch on my glans. It is not painful, not effecting anything but it is just there. Should I be worry?
Candidal balanitis: You've got a candidal (fungal) infection, most likely. Use a good athlete's foot or jock itch remedy, available over the counter. Coconut oil, or vinegar (acetic acid) are other effective home remedies. If you're sexually active, your partner's probably got the same problem, and should be treated with an anti-fungal prep. You may be passing it back and forth. ...Read more

I have a small red circumscribed patch on the glans of my penis for 3 weeks now. I had no pain, no blisters no itchiness and no generalized symptoms.
Red Patch on Penis:
A red patch on the head of the penis can arise for several reasons. If you are not circumcised, this could be inflammation, called balanitis. Steroid creams help. If you have started any new meds, it could be a fixed drug eruption. Stopping the meds helps, but it is a harmless event.
If it is growing in size and doesn't respond to the above in a week or two, I recommend a urological evaluation. ...Read more
Balanitis, phimosis: This is due to a tiny amount of URINE trapped under the foreskin. Yeasts and smegma bacteria ferment the urine into irritating products. Circumcision is a quick and easy cure. Castellani solution is very effective. Always hold back the foreskin during urination and hold back for a minute after. After urinating rinse off or blot with a tissue. ...Read more
