Question
White spot
White spot  
About a year a white spot appeared on the head of my penis, it is a bit rough but it does not hurt. Could you help me?

Answer
The white spot could be posinflammatory hypo pigmentation.  This is where irritation of the skin causes a decrease in pigmentation. Another possibility is early vitiligo.  This condition is a depipmenting disorder. One looses the pigment on the body. This condition is usually hereditary.
