Posted on Mon, 1 Jun 2015
Question: Ive been having these discolored patches show up on the head of my penis that are a bruise like color and vary in size. They tend to show up more after sex or masterbation. They do not itch or burn and this has been ongoing for a few weeks now. I have been diagnosed with HPV but im nervous this not it. Please help.

Brief Answer:
Not Hpv

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query and photograph.
It is looking like friction dermatitis.
I treat such patients with a mild steroid cream like cortisone.
This gives excellent response.
You too can try this.
Please dont worry It's not hpv.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you

Can HIV cause spots like this? I also have small red dots on the shaft of my penis. I have bad OCD so i always think the worst. I just want to rule out any other STDs
