pigmentation loss on forskin and head of penis
In the past 2 months i have noriced a loss of pigmentation on my foreskin and underside of the head of my penis. THe skin in this area has aslo become dry - to the extent that i believe a circular band of scar tissue is slowly forming.

I am not sexually active so it is definitely not an STD!!!

Do you know of any dermatological conditions relating to these symprtoms?

Steve, it doesn’t sound like an STD, but it may be due to a fungal infection, a form of eczema or even cancer. I think the best would be to see a doctor a.s.a.p. Good luck.
