Red shiny spots under penis skin, burning sensation while cleaning. Cause?

I was wondering about a couple of red shiny spots/ovals on the crown of my penis , and or underneath my forskin .. Sometimes it gets irritated; like a slight burning sensation when I clean it while showering . I ve had it for a couple months now and I haven t been sexually active in about 5 months. I ve heard different ideas of what it might be.. Any idea of what it might be?

General Surgeon 's  Response
The red spots are blood vessels beneath the foreskin.
They are normal.
They may appear after friction due to trauma,washing,sex etc.
So,nothing to worry.
Please consult a dermatologist for correct diagnosis.
Wish you good health.
