Customer Question

Second opinion] I noticed these red areas on the head of my penis about a week ago. When I noticed, it was 1 red little area. Now when I looked today, it was the 2nd red area about 3 centimeters away from the other one.
It doesn't hurt, burn, itch or anything at all -- I just visually noticed it and got a little concerned. I am in a longterm, monogamous relationship and we practice safe sex. Even so, I haven't had sex with her in about 8 weeks. Does this look like anything I should be concerned with?

Hello,I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query.The commonest cause of such spots would be Balanitis,fungal infection and herpes.Allergies like reaction to perfumed soaps can also cause this.Avoid perfumed cosmetics,discuss this with your PCP and rule out any fungal or herpetic infection.Allergy to condom lubricants can also cause this.Use of antifungal creams ad mild steroid creams may cure this.
