Hello
Thanks for the query. A photo of the lesion would really help.
Asymptomatic pigmentation of glans penis is a common condition and can be easily treated with the use of mild topical steroid.

Brief Answer:
Urinary tract infection

Detailed Answer:
hello
Thanks for the query.
Burning during urination suggest that you have developed urinary tract infection.
Frequent inspection of the penis by you might have irritated leading to development of dark spots.
There is nothing to worry it is a common condition.
You need treatment with a course of antibiotics for the urinary tract infection.
please meet the doctor and get antibiotics prescribed for you.
Also use mometasone cream as advised by me for the dark spots.
This should help you.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you
