Customer Question
About 5 days ago, I...
About 5 days ago, I noticed several small pink (to slightly red) patches of skin at the base of my penis. They are not raised, and have a slightly shiny appearance. There is no itching, and appears to be no discharge. They range in size from 2-5mm in diameter, and are clustered at the base of the shaft, with 10-12 in total. There also seem to be some faint pink spots in my pubic region as well. Unlike the spots on my shaft, they appear to all have hairs growing out of them.
I am a sexually active 26 year old. In the last 3 months, I have had protected sex with one partner (1-2 times a day for the last 3 weeks). In the last 12 months, I have had sex with several partners, with a few instances of unprotected sex.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
