I have these two weird, mystery red marks on my penis that seem to have come out of nowhere. I have absolutely no idea what could have caused them which is why I'm here.
The larger, darker one actually looks like blood beneath the skin, and it doesn't hurt at all, but the smaller, pinkish one just looks like a pinkish spot. It was a little painful to touch 2 days ago but doesn't seem to hurt today. Both marks seem to be only superficial, and move with my foreskin.
If anyone has any input on how these may have come about or what I should do about them, I'd appreciate it.
(hope the crappy picture helps but it was taken from my cell phone so it's low quality)
If anything, I'm masturbating less frequently lately, but pretty much normal. I don't think I do it a lot. I mean, couple times a week probably. Don't really know if that's considered "a lot."
I don't think this is from masturbating. But I really dunno.
As far as making a doctor's appointment goes, I don't know if it'll happen...
I know I shouldn't be, but I'm a little reluctant to talk to my mom about it... I'm seeing my dad in a couple days and I was thinking I might tell him about it, but I'm pretty much hoping I can get some insight from on here. I'd really rather not involve my mom though >_>
I know if you have been with someone it could be a breakout, and you should be test. I understand talking to your mom yeah no but call plan parent hood they can tell you who can test and for low or no money. It looks like a blister. I do not think you got it from masturbating that would just happen out of know where. Is it just red or raised. Is it like a zit when they first start? I have met a friend on here and she is a nurse I will ask her. Do talk to your dad if he is a dad that will take it as more then a joke. I hope you find somehting to help put your mind at rest on this. Good luck.
I haven't been with anyone... ever... so it's not that.
They don't feel like blisters, they're just red, not raised, they're not like zits, they feel just like normal. Like I said, the bigger spot looks like blood beneath the skin. The smaller spot is just pinkish, and that seems to be all there is to it..
Could it be that a blood vessel broke beneath the skin, and if so, is that a big deal?
As for my parents, my dad knows when I'm joking and when to take me seriously, but my mom just thinks I'm a hypochondriac and hates taking me to doctors for anything.
