Dear Trent,

You can find an option of attach files or you can contact the customer care.

Anyway,the painless spot without itching on the head of penis is most likely because of fordyce's spot.You are right.

Fordyce's spot are painless and not itchy, but may cause embarrassment because of its appearance, or a fear that it might be sexually transmitted – which they it is not! It is abnormally dilated blood vessel, covered by thickened skin.

Another possibility is of angiofibroma. It is Pearly papule & is not infectious and require no treatment.

Both the conditions are self limiting & don't require any treatment & it is not an STD. So there is nothing concern about this spot.Just keep an eye of observation.

Hope this helped.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions.

Thank you XXXXX
Dr. Robert

I was hoping to get a picture to you through my computer since I now have access to it, but I don't have control over replying since I presented the question over my iPhone and unfortunately there is no attachment option. Is there any alternative to send you the pictures?
