Question Red area on head of penis

About two or three weeks ago I noticed a small red area on the head of my penis. It is probably 1/2 to 3/4 the size of a dime, and does not hurt at all. The skin has peeled off of it, and when my penis is flacid it is barely noticeable. I have been trying to locate pictures similar to what I have, but am unable to find any, and I have also read posts on other boards describing what I have, but no reply has helped any. I'm just a tad concerned about it. My girlfriend, about two weeks ago, had swollen lymph nodes too. Her doctor said they were from allergies, but I don't suppose he would have checked for STDs.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

See you doctor and ask to be tested for all std's, and all other infections! The only std it sounds like it could be to me is herpes, however it is very possible that it is a dermatitis like what your girlfriend was told, if she used a soap and then later you guys had sex, it is very possible that you also had a reaction to the soap or what ever she had used! It's as simple as using a scented soap! (you should only use dove unscented soap in tht area)
so, keep that in mind before freeking about std's. just get checked! it's the only way to know for sure!
take care! and go`od luck!
