Infection? Eczema?: It may simply be a hygiene problem. If you are uncircumcised, washing under the foreskin is a must. Sometimes a rash appears after intercourse which may be related to your partner's yeast. She (and you) may need treatment. Skin diseases such as psoriasis or eczema could also be the problem as could sensitivity to soap. The nodules may well be related to skin issues; have your doc check.
