How to treat purple gland around the penis?

I have a purple ring around the glans of my penis. I am uncircumcised and my foreskin has been tight in the past, however I am able to pull it all the way back with no trouble now and have been regularly keeping the hood clean. Any ideas as to what this may be? The purple ring is a little tender, no sign of a fungal infection. I have read that using Bepanthen Cream for Nappy rash may help.

Hi,

Very difficult to comment without seeing directly or pictures.
Are you talking about pearly papules. If so they are harmless.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I recently have noticed a small red pimple -like bump on my penis glans. It is close to the opening of my penis. I tried to ignore it and wondered about maybe an irritation from boxer shorts fabric. A a week or so later, close to the bump area I noticed a small purple-ish colored line ,(1/8 inch or so) that kind of appears just under the skin surface. I am married and have not have sex for awhile now, so am very curious about what this could be. Suggestions?
