What causes a red spot on the tip of the penis?

A few times after working out I found a spot of redness/pinkness on the tip of penis. It would only last a day or two and I would make sure to wash the area very well. It has only happened a few times but I get worried and think it could be something serious. I m worried and don t know what I should do

Hello,

I think the red spot may be related to a thrush infection. Try to use a gentle soap and dry well. Use cotton underwear. You can use clotrimazole ointment for it.

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

Regards,
