Hi there ~

I understand your concern. It is unusual to have painful brown pathes on penis and the fact that it is spreading is even more concerning and sounds like herpes. You need to see a dermatologist immediately. It may also be that your penis hurting while urinating may be due to a urinary tract infection (UTI) or due to a sexually transmitted disease (STD). In either case you would have to visit a doctor. If testing i.e. screening for STDs are normal and you do not have a UTI either you might have a benign or a malignant urological condition for which you need to visit with a urologist. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
