Posted by John Dugan on Friday, September 14, 2018, In : Men's Health 

Monitoring penis health is important for all men. Often a man will notice that he has developed a rather red penis, or more specifically that the glans of the penis has reddened or has red patches around it. This is often a sign of balanitis, a fairly common condition, especially among men whose foreskin is intact.
