Hello, i have a problem. It all started about 3 years ago. I noticed for some reason, i hadlight red patches on the shaft of my penis, and they were slightly discomforting. They healed and i didnt have any problemsfor about a year and a half. Then got them again except they started to peel. Those healed as well andnow about 2 weeks ago i started gettingthe patches again except now they form raised bumps that are soft to the touch, almost like a pimple would feel under the skin.they are getting very uncomfortable because they itch and i dont know what's going on. Do you have any suggestions of what it might be? I looked online and symptoms point to herpes but id like to get some suggestions before i go get checked so i know what to look for.
