Rash: Both be checked by your physician and have cultures if necessary. Your doctor may be able to diagnose your problem from an exam. Your symptoms sound suspicious for a yeast infection. All the best sorting this out.

Many possibilities: Most genital skin rashes are not STDs, and your description doesn't sound like an STD. Some likely to itch are eczema, scabies, contact dermatitis or other allergy, psoriasis (especially if you have psoriasis elsewhere). It could be a fungal or bacterial infection, especially if you are uncircumcised. Whatever the cause, it isn't likely to be serious. See a doctor for diagnosis and treatment.
