What causes pink spot on penis opening?

Hello, I'm sure this kind of question is asked a lot. But I wanted to know if I should be concerned about a small pinkish red spot on the head of my penis? It is about the size of the head of a needle, perhaps smaller. I have no pain in that region and the spot itself does not appear to be scabby, just a small redish dot. It is not a bump, nor raised, just appears under the skin. Is this nothing more than a popped blood vessel?

Hi,
Thanks for posting in HCM.
I understand your concern.
Pink spot what you are speaking of having on the penis tip could be just a superficial skin abrasion.
Kindly clean the spot with mild antiseptic solution like Povidine twice daily. Apply Neomycin with Hydrocortisone cream on the spot after drying.
Kindly maintain good genital hygiene.
Hope the information provided would be helpful.
All the best.
