Flaky spot on penis shaft

Posted , 5 users are following.

I noticed for a little over a week this strange spot.

I'm sexually not active and had myself tested in February (all was fine - i do this every year).

As i'm quite a hypochondriac I'm losing my mind.

In that area I had a sebaceous gland that got 'infected'.

It doesn't hurt, although it's quite sensitive and you have to look good in order to notice it.

Looks like a dry patch/flaky skin.

I'm making an appointment Monday with dermatologist.

I wonder what the circled spot exactly is? Could this be scar tissue?
