Strange "holes" on my skin where hairs used to grow
An_250795 posted:
I have these strange empty holes where hair used to grow out of on my skin on the underside of my penis, there used to be just two, but lately they have multiplied in the same area.

it seems like hair follicles but they either are empty or the hairs have broken off under the skin
they are 1 mm wide, and 3 mm deep
are their any parasites or fungal infections that would cause this to happen?
