I have a small patch of redness on the glans of the penis

Customer Question

I have a small patch of redness on the glans of the penis that hasn't gone away. Having sex makes the area even redder. The rest of the gland area is normal except for this small patch of redness.

This looks like an abrasion.
Looks totally benign to me
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Any treatment recommended for it to heal. I'm going to abstain from sex and masturbation should that help?
Expert:  DocPhilMD replied 1 year ago.

Yes, just avoid irritating it.

that is enough to heal
