I have redness on my penis glans time now, and it never

Customer Question

Hi, I have redness on my penis glans for a long time now, and it never seems to go away. There is no itching or anything like that, I am not sure if it is an infection or just dry irritated skin. I have not been to a doctor about it.

Hello I attached some, can you see them? Thanks

There can be many reasons for not getting a full erection.

Having a partial erection does not rule out all organic conditions.

Heart disease

Low testosterone [it is NOT due to ageing]

New diabetes

Other circulation problems.

Psychological problems

Prostate disease

Medication effects.

You need to see an internist.

This would not have an indication for MRI or nerve conduction studies off the bat.

Exam first.

Diagnoses first.

Find me anytime, I am a double board certified clinical doctor.

This is not about an erection issue

Ignore that

site issue

The penis looks normal.

How long has it been red?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
For years now, it doesn't hurt/itch or anything, it seems to flair up a bit after sexual activity. I guess I should stop worrying about it if it looks normal
