Suggest treatment for dark dots on the head of the penis

default
Posted on Fri, 22 Jul 2016
Question: Hello. Please refer to my previous inquiries as these all relate to the same situation.

The small dark dot on the rim of my glans penis has been present for about 8 months now. As per my last consultation on this site (I also saw a doctor in person), the advice I was given from both was to pay it no mind and for the most part, it was ok. Sometimes it would fade a bit, sometimes it would look a bit irritated (always after masturbation) but it never totally went away.

However a few days ago I engaged in two long intense masturbation sessions, and afterwards the site was very red and the spot looked darker. The redness went away after about a day, day and a half, but the dark spot remains, it almost looks and feels like a scab after a cut or something. There is no pain, no itching, no burning, no discharge.

But I do not like the look of it and I am very anxious. I just want to rule out the possibility of a disease or infection. I last had protected sex with a condom about 3 months ago with a girl I was dating, and I haven't had sex since then.

Can you please take a look at the attached picture, and at the pictures from my previous posts, and let me know your opinion? Thank you very much for your time.

There is no infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query and photograph.
Just relax its normal.
It's just a common mole.
Redness and swelling is due to friction during masturbation.
You don't have any infection.
If you want this spot can be removed using radiofrequency ablator.
You can meet a dermatologist and get it removed.
For immediate relief apply a mild steroid cream like cortisone twice daily for a week.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
