Dermatology/Dark spots on penis
Hello! I am 20, still a virgin and circumcised. No sexual activity, etc. I have had a bumpy textured penis head ever since I could remember. A week ago I noticed a slightly darker spots and some little bumps on my penis. And some dry skin around the urethra. Doesn't itch or burn. I was wondering if this could be anything harmful?
Postinflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) is a frequently encountered problem and represents the sequelae of various cutaneous disorders as well as therapeutic interventions. This acquired excess of pigment can be attributed to various preceding disease processes that affect the skin such as infections, allergic reactions, mechanical injuries, reactions to medications, phototoxic eruptions, trauma (eg, burns), and inflammatory diseases (eg, lichen planus, lupus erythematosus, atopic dermatitis). The pigment should not worry you as it is harmless.
