Ok- There are two completely flat flesh colored spots on my penis shaft. I can send a picture. They are painless and usually very hard to see. The picture makes them looked raised, but in fact, they just appear like a circle with wrinkles, and even reflect a little in light. The reason for the contrast probably has more to do with the flash on my camera than what I actually see in real life. I have eczema and sensitive in that area in general and wondering if (hoping) its just dry skin.

Thanks

Let me see the photo please

Here you go. The closer you zoom, the more it appears to be part of the skin, then something else raised. Thank you for looking.

Very good--thanks

How long have you had those?

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
A week. Some days they look like they are completely gone, and others, it's a little more noticeable.

Nothing serious there--

Not herpes or genital warts or cancer

Those are small blocked oil glands, sometimes called Fordyce spots

No specific trigger for them and very often they go away on their own in time

But if they bother you they can easily be removed by a dermatologist either with liquid nitrogen freezing or with a cold CO2 laser

Please let me know if you need any more information

Ok. That's good to hear. I didn't know they could be flat. I have those elsewhere and they are raised when the skin is stretched out and you can visibly see the round gland. That is why I wasn't sure about the ones I sent you. Is it possible the ones I sent you, got irritated somehow and are healing back funny? Is that how it works?

No they can also be flat

Sometimes irritation with sex or masturbation can change their appearance

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.
