Decided to elaborate more! Red shiny spot on glans. Reoccurring? What could it be?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hey all,

I have this red shiny spot that flakes a bit sometimes. In picture one it is flaccid, Picture 2 and 3 are when its more of a semi (too show the colour change). Please note, these pictures are after washing it, so it is a bit less prominent when settled down. I've had this spot for about 3 weeks ( I believe? maybe 2 maybe more), and I had a similar one 6-7 months ago in almost or maybe even the EXACT same spot. It went away after a month of so when I stopped caring about it and gave up. I change soaps a lot, I shower every day after work or in the mornings on weekends. Could it be a yeast infection? Balantis? Worse?

No itching, not really raised, no pain, just there.

I'm a Landscaper who works in the sun 9-10 hours a day (sweat related)? No sexual contact for a little over a year. When I uh yeah, I grip pretty hard with my right hand and push upwards to that spot somewhat hard. 

Any help or further questions about it would be greatly appreciated smile
