Seborrheic Dermatitis – Penis

July 20th, 2013

Seborrheic Dermatitis arising on the penis is a very common skin condition I encounter in many patients in both my The Woodlands dermatology and Conroe dermatology offices.  Seborrhea has a predilection for the penis and clinically appears as a red scaly plaque along the glans of the penis and the penile shaft.  It is not contagious and typically arises spontaneously “out of the blue.”  It can be treated effectively with a steroid cream such as desonide but it cannot be cured as it can “come and go.”Seborrhea of the Penis
