I was washing the area around my foreskin on my penis this morning when I noticed that there seems to be sort of a red ring around the slit of my penis (where urine comes out, I don't know the specific term). There is no swelling, sensitivity, discharge, or bumps, its just more red than the rest of the head of my penis. Is this just the way my penis looks? or is it something else? I am seeing a doctor tomorrow but I just wanted a general idea of what was going on before hand. Thanks.
Sounds normal, especially given that it is not bothering you.
