I won’t keep bugging you until I get the photo for you but does it sound like anything serious to you? I couldn’t find anything online that explained it perfectly or a picture that looked anything similar

Currently not.

Still, I will wait to answer you properly.

You can take your time and upload a photo.

Thanks.

Photos should be attached

Pictures don’t really do it justice but it’s noticable to the eye

This one shows up a little better

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.
Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.
As per your description and photos, This spot looks completely harmless - it could be a prominent penile skin gland or it could be mild skin irritation/ dermatitis/ eczema or post inflammatory hypopigmentation which is basically some loss of skin pigment following irritation of the penile skin.

It does not look like a wart or any other STD.

I would advise you some self-care remedies which you can try.
An application of OTC Hydrocort ointment and Polysporin ointment on the affected site twice a day.
Take a cool water bath and keep it dry and afterward, apply OTC Zeasorb AF powder.
Take OTC Advil and Allegra for 5 days.
Wear loose-fitting cotton fabric boxer.
Avoid rough masturbation, popping, scratching.

Ok thank u, I will give that a try. It just worried me at first cause I keep good hygiene and don’t sleep around or nothing. I appreciate the help

Thank you for replying back.

You shouldn't worry.

And try such remedies for a week.

Its nothing serious or contagious.

If your symptoms will not show any improvement then see your doctor for a clinical exam.
I hope this answers your question. If you would like to discuss this further or have any additional questions, please reply to my answer and I will get right back to you.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
