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?
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.
