Reddish spot on forearm, not itching or painful, spots on penis. Help

Two days ago I noticed a 1/4 inch reddish-brown round spot with lighter color interior located on my right upper inner forearm . It does not itch nor is it raised or painful. I initially thought it may be an insect bite or reaction to contact with vegetation as I ws working in the garden at the time. This morning I noticed two such round spots on my penis . I am a 69 year old Anglo-American male suburbanite from So.Calif., married for 42 years and monogamous. I am in excellent health, good diet , and no existing medical coditions. Thank you for review, I look forward to your response. Wil B.

good morning, im dr satya,
welcome to health care magic.
Good to know that you are keeping good health, and energetic too.
The round spot in question on your foer arm and penis is very much suggestive of a fixed drug eruption and does not cause you much problems so long as you dont consume the medicine that caused it. Most often the reason is due to use of pain killers and mild antibiotics.
Do try to identify the drugs you consumed recently and let us know.
in the meantime you may visit your family doctor and apprise him of your problem.
Thank you, take care,
do feel comfortable to contact us.

Dermatologist Dr. Shilpa Bhat's  Response
Hi Mr webpi, i need a little more history to answer your question- have you taken any form of medicine or OTC drug for any minor ailments a few days ago? I am thinking in terms of Erythema multiforme minor or a fixed drug eruption. Please contact the dermatologist who will guide you further.
