Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
Hello Toma
Mole :A small dark blemish on the skin caused by a high concentration of melanin , sometimes hairy.
These are on the posterior side of your penis in the picture ( five in number ).
The moles on the skin is normal and natural , DON'T require any treatment .
If large in size and in bump form , incision is only an option.
In your case normal so not a cause of concern.
Good luck.

Now i have started with Laser UV therapy, Flutivate Ointment along with a weekly dose of Kenacort Injections on the Patches. Please advice me if can i do anything else on this , so that i can get ready of it soon, or if these Medicines and procedures are enough or, if these have got any side effects as weell, and wat i can do to minimise these side effects.

Hi, my daughter is 10 1/2 yrs old and has deficiency of melanin and a portion on her head (about 1 to 1 1/2 inch) is white. She had been using homeopathic treatment for this and it had also been successful, because similar 1 to 2 patches on her skin have been cured by this homeopathic medicine which she has taken for nearly 6 years now. But the problem is that the doctor is now unavailable and not reachable. Hence I would like to know how I should continue her treatment. I just checked a few other cases, but am confused. Kindly help!
