I'm 18years old and I have never had sex. And I find tiny red spots under the foreskin but it isn't itchy. And most of the time my penis is dry when foreskin is retract, and the tip of the penis which I believe call the meatus is regularly red. I'm worried, at first I thought it would go away but it wouldnt go away.
And how can I cure it?
As I believe that more information can help a physician help a patient better, I would request you to give me a slightly more detailed description of the red spots on the under surface of your prepuce.
In general, asymptomatic red lesions or skin colored lesion at the site that you describe may be normal. They may be just a prominence of glands and are called fordyce spots. These persist and become prominent on and off especially during penile erection.
I would like to know if you have any history of burning urination in the past or the present. A red meatus may be normal sometimes.
I would suggest that you don’t retract the meatal opening daily. Wait for a few days. I presume it would get normal.
If your problem persists or any new symptoms appear, you may need a basic check up by physician or a dermatologist to rule out Balanoposthitis

I really appreciate you taking your time evaluating my question.
As English is my second language I find it tough describing in details.
The meatus has been noticeably red for a couple months, but I find it lighter red when I don't retract it. But I usually retract daily during shower becuz I had to clean what's under the skin, everyday there are white stuff under skin, and it occurs daily I think it's the dead skin, is this normal? No matter how I try to clean it it still occurs.
I once had to go the doctor becuz until age 13 I have problem with wetting the bed, they gave me medication. And a few months later it was cured. The tip part of my penis is sensitive, and my penis still feel an uncomfortable sensation when fully retract for a long time.
I'm considering circumcision perhaps it would be easier to clean. Do you have any suggestions? How long will it take to cure after circumcision? How long will the circumcision take?
I was worried and never had the chance to visit a dermatologist, having you responding my post makes me feel happy. Thank you please let me know if you have any other questions?
