Hello,

Thanks for posting on XXXXXXX

I looked keenly at the rash and from your description, I do not think it is anything you should worry about. The rash is rather purplish than red and might likely be a vessel that has dilated and showing on your skin. Petechia skin lesion is the most likely and it shows up around your penis as a result of strain.
As your dermatologist rightly said, I do not think it is something you should worry about. If it was painful or itchy, then that is when you should worry.
I suggest you do not worry about it as I do not feel it is any serious diseases condition.

Hope this helps and wish you the best.

Hello,

Thanks for your update,

No I do not think it is fungi infection or any other infection. It is just collateral blood circulation which has no problem with your health or penis.
Do not worry at all, as I am positive that it is no big deal.

Regards
