Purple Spot on Penis

Seeing an unusual appearance on the penis can be concerning. Getting a purple spot on your penis can have various causes: an infection, a bruise, a problem with blood circulation, or something more serious.

If you see a purple spot on your penis, the ideal thing to do would be to visit your doctor. And if you think it might be the result of a recent unprotected sexual encounter, you can get an STD test. Nevertheless, we will talk about some of the possible causes of a purple spot on penis.

Allergic reaction: Some medications do not bode well with everyone and cause an allergic reaction to the penis. It can cause your penis to turn purple or red and get a rash. If this is the case, you need to stop taking the medicines and seek medical attention immediately.

Bruise: A zipper accident, vigorous masturbation, and rough sex can bruise the penis. Bruises appear as a result of rupturing of blood vessels beneath the skin. It may be painful to the touch and look red or purple. Unless you got the bruise from a serious injury, there is likely no need for medical attention.

STDs: Some sexually transmitted diseases and infections can cause a purple spot on the penis. STDs like genital herpes and syphilis can cause genital sores that look red or purple. You may also experience other symptoms like painful urination, body ache, fever, itchiness, and fatigue when you have a purple spot on your penis caused by STDs.

If you think you had a sexual encounter with someone infected with an STD, visit your doctor. Syphilis and herpes are treatable, and their symptoms are manageable.

Lichen sclerosus: Skin conditions like lichen sclerosus appear on the genitals. It causes inflammation on the penile skin, initially developing white patches. While healing, the patches turn into purple spots.

If you see any unexplainable changes on your penis, especially if pain and itch accompany them, you should get it checked. Bruises are a common cause of purple spots on the penis, but if you experience pain, bloody urine, and itchiness, it is probably an STD that is causing the spots to appear.

You can go for an STD test to check whether the purple spots are appearing because of an STD. A doctor would be able to give you medication and treatment for the spots by diagnosing the underlying cause. Always practice safe sex to avoid getting STDs, especially the ones that have no cure.
