Thanks for sending the pic
How u developed this ??
Was it spontaneous ?? Any itching ??or any other symptoms??
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I'm not sure how long it's been there, but I'm guessing no more than 2-3 weeks. I thought it may have been due to irritation but there is no itching or pain, however. The lines almost appear to be stretch marks. Is this normal? Will it go away?

Thanks for the info
There is nothing to worry about as this is just A pigmentation over the penile shaft which usually can be post inflammatory and at times it fades away but even if it doesn't it is a benign problem and won't harm you.

Thanks, ***** ***** know it is benign. But could you please clarify your remarks in terms of what you believe to be the cause?
Expert:  DR.EHTISHAM replied 5 months ago.
Thanks for asking again
It can be effect of repeated sexual activity as these acts can at time give rise to local inflammation which leaves such discolouration .At time it can just be a normal variant of skin color.
