Why is the top of my penis gone red

This answer was rated:

Why is the top of my penis gone red


It may be related to inflammation of the penis head,

Any other symptoms like discharge, itching pain etc.

What is your age and any unprotected sex history?
Any rash?
Warm regards

I had balanitis not to long ago but The red marks looks like popped blood vessels or bruises and they have not gone away After numerous weeks.

Can you share a photo?
Are there any symptoms?
Any rough handling?

That’s what it looks like but no I haven’t had any symptoms but when I had balanitis they came up but never went away and doesn’t look pleasant.

Will this clear up because I want my penis to look normal again


This looks like post inflammation changes, not to worry if there are no symptoms.

These are likely to get better slowly without any treatment,

Just wait for a few weeks, if they seem to worsen, you may need to see your GP to get prescription treatment, but nothing needed at present :)
