Brief Answer: It looks to be due to Oedema of the skin. Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for your query,based on the facts and photograph that you have posted it appears that you have swelling (Oedema) of the penile skin. I shall be happy if you can post me few more details to help me in making comments on your problem. 1) Did you have unprotected, dry sex before you noticed this? This is localised oedema of the penile skin at coronal sulcus. You need to take broad spectrum antibiotic like Cefexine along with anti inflammatory drug like Diclofenac twice daily. Ensure to wash your genitals with warm water twice daily. This should get cured within a week.
