Perhaps someone out there can shed some light... I struggle with an issue from time to time. I have small, red spots that will appear around the base of the head of my penis. Not on the shaft, just the glans. These spots are red, about 1mm in diameter. They are flat, painless, do not itch, ooze or anything of the sort. When my penis becomes erect, the spots stretch out and aren't noticible. However when I am flacid, the spots are visible. They dissapear within a few days, but then pop up when I least expect it. I have seen both my primary care physician, as well as my dermatologist. Both sort of shrug it off and say it is simply a case of dermatitus. They both prescribed a steroid cream. There's no concern of an STD, as both doctors checked. (I have been in a monogamous ...and even so very well protected... relationship for many years.) I recall first having noticed them about 5 years ago. What baffles me is that the spots seemingly appear for no reason. The only thing I can possibly attribute it to would be sweating or friction. I went line dancing the other night, and all was fine prior. However when I got up the next morning (no sexual activity that night, just got very hot and sweaty dancing.) I had about a dozen of the spots on my penis! I am embarassed by the sight of them. My partner is aware, and says it's not of concern to him. (He's an RN as well) However, I can't stand the thought of not being visually "okay" down there. Does anyone else have a similar issue? Is there someome that may relate?
