Red spot on the head for 7 months.

Does not bring any discomfort (except for psychological).

20, Virgin.

Tried various ointments and antibiotics - didn't help.

The doctor says that this is a vascular spot, but this spot appeared at the age of 19 years, as far as I know it's impossible.

I have the same mate, if not causing you pain leave it be, if Doc’s not worried try not to worry

What is this?

It could be a vascular problem as your doc said but to stop the worry you might see an expert at a GUM Clinic.

It could be balantis, yeast infection or just a change in shower gel or body wash, I’m sure if doc was concerned they would have arranged a referral for you.

As Osidge said if your proper concerned head to the GUM clinic mate, sorry couldn’t help anymore buddy

In my country there is no GUM Clinic.

Whether it is necessary to make a biopsy, or until the spot begins to increase, or hurt, it is better just to ignore it?

Do you have a sexual health clinic in your country? If still concerned check with your gp again that is fine to leave.

No, in my country they are not. If I come to gp, he usually says that this is a vascular spot. There are two options - do a biopsy right now, to find out exactly what it is, or do nothing, until it starts to change.

How long have you had this spot?

Years I’ve had red patches although the head of my penis is darker than yours, I’ve been to gp & sexual health clinic and nobody gives me indication of any problems, it does fade and come & go and doesn’t give me any issues.

Updated a photo. Left - patch after appearance, right - after 7 months.

It seems to me it has increased a little.

Can it be erythroplasia of queyrat?
