A 18-year-old male asked:
Lichen sclerosus: This is most likely an idiopathic disease called lichen sclerosus. An older name was "balanitis xerotica obliterans" and it is the most common cause of phimosis which is what you are having when the foreskin cannot be retracted. This is treatable and you need to see a dermatologist. If the phimosis has gotten that bad you may need a circumcision as that can become a serious problem.
A 41-year-old female asked:
Could be eczema : Try vasoline ointment on your skin after bathing when your skin is wet Avoid drying soaps Do not put anything else on the rash If it persists then see your dermatologist for a diagnosis and then maybe a topical steroid ointment

This : This sounds like folliculitis. You can get this from contaminated water such as a hot tub. Use anti-bacterial soap and try to think of any exposures you have had. You need to be medically evaluated as they have been persistent. If you get redness, red streaks, discharge, feel "flu like", or have a fever then you need to be evaluated immediately as an emergency.
