A 22-year-old male asked:

Hi, i am 22 years old male, and about a week ago i noticed on the top of the head of my penis, at the opening around the urethra, a redness started to appear, doesn't hurt or itch, wondering what could it be, yeast infection?

See a doctor: There are over 100 causes of genital skin problems, including redness like this. Most are minor problems, and no STD is likely -- but otherwise no way to even guess the cause or best treatment. Yeast probably isn't very likely. Sorry. Good luck.
