Hello,
It is most likely to be Fordyce spots or penile melanotic macules. Both of these are benign and do not pose any health risk.

Penile melanotic macule is a well-defined, oval, brown to black, flat patch on the penis of some people. Once developed the lesion usually remains unchanged in size and color. It can occasionally have an irregular edge and there may be a history of color change as well.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

actually i went to doctor..... did a urine test... nothing....
instead of was given some desonide cream which didnt help either
my condition continues off and on
foreskin red and then i use some clotrimazole cream then it goes away
but the head of the penis continues to get erected and all these red bumps appear...... then disappear after erection goes down
could it be an std? or yeast infection
would amoxcillin help
