White patches on penis

Resolved Question:

Hi, I have white patches on penis, where I lost pigmentation. They are flat and there is no pain or redness. They have been there for one year. I went to the docter 6 months ago, and all he could tell me is they are not sinister. They are slowly getting worse and I'm not sure what to do. This is getting me down. Picture attached. Kind regards

Hello
This can be vitaligo
Or it can be a type of fungal infection.
The first would need a steroid cream.
The other would need an antifungal cream.
Show this to your doctor for exam under magnification.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
