hello i have no history of stds no unprtected sex at all also no burning at all whilst urinating and no lesions just very red head of penis

Thanks for input,

this problem can occur due to

1) Inflammation or infection of the skin of the penis most likely balanitis.

foreskin tightening occurs in many cases of balanitis.

2) blockage of blood supply of the penis head due to tight skin.

you need to get it evaluated from your doctor as this problem needs immediate evaluation.

if there is associated fever then it also indicates some inflammation/infection.

In such cases hidden diabetes should also be considered and can be evaluated by a simple blood test.

I hope this answers your question.
