Disclaimer

for the last 3 weeks i have had a minor rash on the head of my penis. it causes no discomfort except for occasional itching or pain but i cannot confirm this is from the rash. no pictures online seem to match what i have so what could this be?

Urgent Care Exam!: What you are describing could be an infection which should be treated as quickly as possible. Please avoid sexual contact with your penis until this is resolved. Also as always you should maintain good hygiene. And I suggest you go to an Urgent Care Center for an exam as soon as possible. I wish you well with your health!
