Hi doctor,

I am 24 years old. I had pearly papules on my glans penis a long time ago. I got them removed three months ago by a dermatologist with CO2 laser. Now, bottom of the glans penis is very dark purple in color. I have tried to put some gels on it, but had no success with that. I will attach the picture of my glans. Is this normal? Please tell me your professional opinion.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through the attached picture and provided details (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • I feel the discoloration at glans is completely normal and there is no problem with it either in the near future or distant future other than a cosmetic concern.
  • In fact, it is possible that this is a healed scar of the papules that you had long time ago or some medication side effect.
  • There is a high possibility that it may stay for longer duration. So, it is important to reduce your worries about it.
