Patient

Q: What are small red spots on the tip of my penis head? They look like pimples or zits.

Doctor

A:   Hi.
Read and understood your problem.

The red sports on the head of penis can be due to the following reasons:
- Enlarged normal glands of glans
- Balanoposthis can occur due to the hot and humid atmosphere.
- STD, sexually transmitted disease.

I would advise you to consult your Doctor or a Dermatologist for proper diagnosis and prescription based treatment.
Your partner should take the same course.

I hope this helps you.
