Crater-like holes on my penis
Posted on: 12/18/2007
Hi, i am 14 and for about 6 months now i have had these crater-like holes in the skin on the underside of the base of my penis. they do not hurt and you can see normal skin in the hole. they are mainly around my red line. they go away but always seem to come back. should i be worried?
No need to worry. These "craters" may be left over from where the foreskin once attached. In any case, as long as they aren't red and painful, there is no cause for concern.
