Recurring red spots on head of circumcised penis. Sometimes itch, slight burning sensation. What could it be?

I have reoccurring red spots on the head of my circumcised penis , usually on the under side. They are not always in the same place. Sometimes they come for a few days, then they leave, and seem to come back randomly. Sometimes spots will occur after (unprotected) sex, but those ones seem like they go away in a short period of time or over night. The spots are never really raised. They aren t like blisters. They don t puss up or pop or scab over. Sometimes there is an itch or slight burning sensation. They are unsightly and take a toll on my mind more than anything else. I haven t had unprotected sex with anyone other than my girlfriend for about the last year. I usually shy away and refrain from sexual activity when they do occur until they are virtually unnoticeable. They started appearing maybe 3-4 months ago.

Hello
Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have chronic infection of Glans of the penis (Ballanitis)
Please take some antibiotics like Doxycycline twice daily for 10 days and observe personal hygiene by cleaning glans with warm water before and after sexual activity.
