Itching in head of penis, grey spots, have eczema. What could this be?

Hi, i m 45 years old, and about two days ago, i started feeling very itchy on the head of my penis , last night i looked at it just before i got in the shower and noticed two dark grey spots, one to the right of my glans near the shaft and this was about 1.5 mm in size, the other on the left side about a centimetre from the urethra and this was a little smaller. I suffer from eczema in colder weather to a greater or lesser degree but this usually only affects my hands or my elbows and sometimes the backs of my knees. I have had only 2 sexual partners in the last 20 years, both of whom have been long term. i will be making an appointment with my GPon Monday, but meanwhile do you have any idea what they could possibly be? Many thanks

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have itching around glans of your penis along with two bumps over glans penis.

The bumps could be due to frictions due to scratching
Itching of the glans penis is a one of the presenting symptoms of diabetes .please get your blood sugar levels on empty stomach and 2 hours after lunch to rule out Diabetes.

The itching could be due to Herpes 2 infection too.Please get basic tests done to rule out herpes infection.

Please consult qualified urologist for clinical evaluation and further treatment.
