Home Remedies for Penis Problems | Q&A

Q: Grandma, For the past few months, I am noticing that my penis skin has turned bit dark. It started with natural skin brown color. I also can see some tiny white dots too. How can I solve this problem?

A: Dear H, A penis that is darker than your natural skin color is actually normal. This is because of the increased blood vessels that are anatomically close with each other and are near the surface of the skin.
