Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor. I
I have read your query.
I understand your concern.
Such red spot glans may be due to following reasons-
1) Candidial Balanoposthitis : it is fungal infection of skin involving the genital area. It is usually associated with itch. Itch may be absent in diabetic patients or on application of some medications.
2)Fixed drug eruption: it is the development of well defined rash over fixed area on taking some medications like pain killers /antibiotics.
Treatment depends on the diagnosis.
Visit your doctor so that he can examine you and give you prescription accordingly.
You can share my opinion with him.
I hope it helps.
