I am 19 Years old, Male, and I have had this problem increasingly over the last 6-8 months. I really am not sure when I started noticing things were different but it was sometime earlier this year. It's been issues with my glans skin on the underside, left and right of the "border" i guess I'd call it, peeling. It would happen periodically and I would notice when I was masturbating.
I also have this strange spongey texture on the top of my glans, a burning when I pee especially after masturbating, and very small bump like thing coming outward from the urethral opening (you can see all this in the photos I think). Though all of these things outside of the peeling have been around for a lot longer than the last 6-8 months. I remember feeling burning when I'd pee as far back as 15. That said, the spongey texture, and the bumps, though I believe they were present before I noticed the peeling this year, do seem to be getting worse as well.
There's also just a lot of discoloration. Brown spots, a general brown discoloration near the area thats peeling on the underside, and a very subtle red splotchyness all over. My penis glans also just generally has a redish hue to it on the top then quickly transitions to a gray on the bottom.
The area that's been peeling has now a shiny / scaly texture to it that looks different when the light hits it. This is likely from scarring from all the peeling I guess? This is my main conern, the peeling and the scarring.
I will rule out STIs because I have never had sex. Though I masturbate frequently. Usually just by moving the skin back and forth on the upper part of my shaft without lube and without touching my glans or rubbing across the skin at all. I am circumcised but I have enough skin left there that I can comfortably tug it.
Lastly, I want to reference another thread from this group, if I may, because the photos there are very representative of a certain thing my glans does as well. https://patient.info/forums/discuss/glans-problems-718063 If you look at those photos, my glans behaves similarly texture wise from before erection, during erection when it gets more shiny and smooth, and after erection where it just looks weird, almost like it's got white powder on it or something, I can't describe it but the pictures speak for themselves there.
I really don't want to go see a doctor about this but it's looking like I'm going to have to. But some other opinions and help with this would be immensely appreciated. Heres the photos:
