What causes small red spot on glans penis?

A few days ago I've noticed a small red spot on the left side of my penis head. It doesn't cause any pain or anything and it isn't raised. It seems to be fading but after showers or any erections it gets red looking again. I have protected sex with my girlfriend frequently. Could this be some type of skin irration or maybe a broken capillary?

The mentioned red rash doesn't need to be specific problem of the glans penis. It can be due to some irritation of penis skin.

You can wear loose cotton underwear and avoid tight-fitting clothes. You can apply mild steroid cream over that.

Keep your genitals clean and dry. If no improvement then consults a nearby doctor for a detailed evaluation or post photo of the lesion.

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

Take care

My foreskin appears to be sticky with glans. Two years back I developed mild red rash on glans. It erupted with itchiness and disappears after soaking in hot water and using clotrimazole. Once it appeared on shaft also. Today I noticed a tiny red spot on glans. I masturbated in the morning. Noticed red spot after noon. There is no itch. Why does it happen.

Hi. Of late i have been noticing tiny red spots on my glans when i pull my foreskin behind. They appear for a few days and then disappear automatically. There is no itch, they do not hurt or cause any kind of discomfort. I showed it to a doctor. He examined my penis and prescribed Neosporin-H. Can you help me what is happening.
