Recurring Red Spot on Penis
Late December 2007 I woke up to find a small red spot on the shaft of my penis.  Not a sore - just red discoloration.  It went away after about 5 days.  Since then, it reoccurs about every 4 - 6 weeks.  It shows up from nowhere, then disappears - not fades gradually - but literally disappears after 4 or 6 days.  It is not itch or hurt.  Any ideas as to what it might be?

I have no idea.  Its not typical of any std or fungal infection.

Have you ever let a doctor see it?  You should.

Its strange.  Tried cortizone and had no affect.  Being that it is random and does not last long, by the time I get an appointment it is gone.

Well you might want to make an appt and get a blood test for herpes, at least to rule it out.  Ask for a type specific IgG test.  When you are there, explain what is happening to your doc, and ask if you can be seen the same day the next time this happens.
