color on penis

The bottom half of the head on my penis is slightly discolorated(pinkish/redish) and almost glossy looking. The foreskin that rolls up over my head is also the same way; just a different color than the rest. It wasn't always this color and that's about the only thing. I did have herpes almost a year ago, but no breakouts since the initial one, and no sign that I ever had it. Does anyone know what may be caused by? Thankyou...

Re: color on penis

Breezy I wish I could tell you for sure. Some guys compare, and from doing so over the years I've noticed with white men, (I'm white) coloring shades will vary. I think it's natural. If you're experiencing no kind of pain, swelling or anything you're probably fine. The coloring and glossy head you've described is normal as far as I know for an uncircumcised man. The foreskin is what keeps the head of the penis glossy, supple and sensitive. Hey, I wish I hadn't been robbed of my foreskin at birth..

I do feel the coloring issue is probably nothing to worry about. If you can't find peace about it ask your doctor.

Take care.

Re: color on penis

my dh penis does vary in color, i think it is natural, but youmentioned you had herpes and now its like you never had.. unfortunatly it is NOT cureable, and oyu can go months or even yrs without an outbreak and may come back.. it never truly disappears.. so maybe if the coloration is that bad, it is related to the herpes! if not, maybe you were misdiagnosed, because its uncurable..
