Painless red spots on glans and foreskin, Balanitis or?

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi everyone,

Little detail about me first, I had done a Herpes 2 igg test with a 3.1 result back in 6months ago. Doctor said have genital herpes. I told him I have never had any lesion or pain coming from my genital area, he said not every herpes 2 carrier will experience lesions in their whole life.

Anyways, I was showering 2 days ago and found these red patch/spots on my glans and foreskin. They are painless, I can urinate and masturbate normally. It's just the red color that concerns me.

Is this Balanitis? Or is it Herpes 2? Should I find a dermatologist to cheeck it out?

Thanks,

Stanley

    The redness on my glans look exactly like yours...

    I have been unable to solve this issue for 11months now. Please have a look at my post here?

    I'm curious as to if you still have symptoms or if you've perhaps found the cause?

    Hello Stanley 

    I am facing similar issues. I have not tested for herps. My urologist said that it is balanitis. Although after taking doxy and itraconazole capsules for 20 days now still no improvement.

    Do you also get shinny glans after washing it??

    pics attached.
