Question: Small red line on my penis


 Baz - Fri May 28, 2004 8:03 am

I have a small red line anbout half an inch long on my penis for about six months now. It's about half way down the shaft of my penis and gets a bit itchy now and again - when it does I put some antiseptic skin cream on it. Anyone got any idea what it is?

Thanks!

User avatar It could be a result of friction. Try not to expose this area to any friction for a couple of weeks. If it doesnt go away please seek the advice of a dermatologist/andrologist.
