User :   Hi,
since I was a kid I have had these spots/scars on the head of my penis. I had hoped they would go away but they haven't if anything more have appeared. I have taken a photo and would be happy for you to look to tell me whats wrong and what I can do to help removed or atleast help it fade etc.. its really impacting my life, I have no confidence at all when it comes to sex because of it.
