Crater-like bump in penis head

Edited , 4 users are following.

So I have had this bump since July, it started from a small spot and proceeded to what you can see. My dermatologist said it could be lichen planus and that there are no clinical signs towards anything else. Any help from previous experience would be appreciated imageimage

    No itching or pain of any kind but whenever I have sex the area gets more red compared to the rest of the head.
