Dear Sir

Occurrence of sudden red spots over penis and scrotum suggest allergic reaction as most likely cause. Exact diagnosis will depend on clinical examination. It would be helpful if you could upload pictures in upload report available in the website. Also kindly provide me following additional information

1. Since when did you notice the rash?

2. Is the rash associated with itching?

3. Is there any discharge?


Awaiting your response

Take care

Brief Answer:
Likely to be fungal infection

Detailed Answer:
Dear Sir

Thanks for providing clinical photograph. From the picture its very much likely to be fungal Balanitis. Local application of combination of steroid and anti fungal ointment twice a day for 2 weeks will be curative.

If the lesion persist hen do consult your physician for further assessment.

Take Care
