I noticed a red circle about the size of a dime on the head of my penis. It is just to the side. It doesn't hurt or itch or anything. I have been cleaning it and putting antibiotic ointment on it but it hasn't changed. It has been there for at least a week. I have noticed that a clear dry layer of skin has formed across the top of the red spot. This has happened on several occasions. while showering the clear skin layer will come off. I have no idea what it is. I have been with the same person for the past four months and no one else for the past 8 months. We always use condoms and try to be very careful. What could this be? I am very concerned that it might be something serious.
