I need an answer regarding this skin condition my penis head. I have seen a doctor. He did a skin biopsy and the results came back as inflammation. Pls get back to me with regard to this. What can this be and what are the remedies that are available to fix this. Thanks.

Hello,
You probably have post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Inflammation on the penis head is usually in response to an infection like fungus. Inflammation will stimulate the melanocytes to produce more melanin causing the black patches.
In most cases, the black patches fade over time. But you can consult a dermatologist who can use lasers to remove the spots.
Applying lemon juice can also help to some extent.
