Question
There has been what looks like some sort of wrinkle in my penis head for about a month. Sometimes it's there, sometimes it goes away a bit. I put the image of it up online on my website because imageshack deleted it. I could email it to you if that would be better

WWW.WWWW.WW

I'm wondering if this is because of disease (UTI) or something. I'm sexually active. Is it necessary to go to doctor to examine this?

Thanks for any help

Brief Answer:
unlikely UTI

Detailed Answer:
welcome to the forum.
Problem in the penis head in not due to UTI.
Wrinkle does not point any specific disease process.
It is better to get examined to look at the area for any clue and decide the further course of action.

Is this normal or could it be some sort of skin condition? Do wrinkles on head of penis sometimes occur? I saw information about "penis wrinkles" but I read that generally does not happen on head of circumcised penis. Is that correct or can wrinkles occur on head like that?

Thanks

Wrinkles on the penis head are not found normally. There is no known medical condition as penis wrinkles.
However, It is wise to rule out skin conditions as they can sometimes affect penile head too.

I've done more research. I'm looking around and it says "paper cut" like marks on penis can be sign of herpes. Is this like the "paper cut" of herpes? What does herpes "paper cut" look like?

I honestly feel that the discussion is leading to a sexually transmitted disease specialist.
Kindly take an opinion from a STD specialist and get well soon.
