    What causes red dots on the glans penis?

default
Posted on Tue, 1 Aug 2017 in Skin Hair and Nails
Question: Hello
Over the past 24-48hrs i have been noticing small painless red dots on the glans of my penis. They are not itchy and do not hurt.

I am circumsized and i know this is not STD related as i have been in a monogamous relationship for 10 years.

The red dots appear and then within a few hours fade away/clear up, only to eventually pop up another place on my glans.

So far ive noticed this for about 4-5 small dots.

Any idea what this is likely to be?
