This problem that has been bothering me since jan of 09 and every eurologist, dermatologist and dr have told me its not an std by any means, although i have never been tested. One said its papules, another said it was balanitis initially, and i went back and now he said it was contact dermatitis. I have checked out pictures of contact dermatitis and it doesnt really look similar. Over the last year and a half it has changed very little until now.. It is getting worse and it was only on the rim of my penis now i am getting very small red dots some clustered and some stray mostly on the bottom underside of my penis and the stray ones on the top of the head. This is starting to alarm me
I had unprotected sex in nov of 08 with someone i didnt know very well which is unlike me. Anyway, The blood vessels on the rim of the head of my penis have been a discolored uneven red looking (11 oclock) mostly after ive become erect and even if im not, its still a more noticable red, like an irritated red coloring, but only the rim. It really gets my mind racing every day when i wake up due to this problem never going away, no matter what topical creams i have been given. Before i went to any eurologist i went to my primary doctor who told me i have balanitis/contact dermatitis due to having sex with someone with a yeast infection he gave me creams and none of them worked what so ever..
Every other dr told me its just my blood vessells and thats the way they are (this is before i started getting these stray bumps/dots But i still dont buy this as of late there are tiny red bumps not only on the rim but now on the head of my penis. Some are SLIGHTLY raised and some you cant really feel but you can definitely see them. Every dr, eurologist and dermatologist ruled out any stds, although ive never been tested. The one and only thing that leads me to believe this is something signifigant or more than just blood vessels or my penis "changing" like one eurologist told me is that there are white 'spots' or "specks" regarding the pigmentation of my skin towards and sort of around the opening of my eurethra. Sometimes theyre there and sometimes theyre not. That is the only sign that leads me to believe there is something wrong with me or that its something different than "Contact Dermititis" Im starting to think its some kind of fungal rash, although initially i did get tingling and some itching on penis at the tip when this problem first started in jan of 09 but really nothing at all since visible signs arose.
I was just curious as to what other skin conditions/problems may cause white patches of spots or dots around the eurertha/head. Theyre not raised very much although you can feel them above the skin. NONE of this was there before jan of 09, i had a normal healthy, regular looking penis, never got red along the rim, never had spots nothing.. now after a masturbate every red dot is extremely noticable and red and its really discouraging. Ive had a girlfriend since january of this year and we have had unprotected sex a bunch times, and she is fine, she hasnt had any problems etc..neither has my girlfriend before her So im pretty positive its not an std.. its driving me crazy i really dont know what to think could be wrong? What could it be? Ive been ASSURED this is no std, i just cant seem to rest easy. No matter what skin condition pictures ive googled in the last 2 years, nothing really looks like what i have WHAT could this be?
What could cause these spots/redness around the rim?
I have pictures that should definitely help.
I took those 2 weeks ago, you can see the dots or bumps if you look close enough and you can def see the redness on the rim
