See below: Agree with Dr. W. Ring worm can occur on penis. You may try over the counter treatment. If that does not lead to improvement in a week or so, see a doctor for a proper diagnosis.

Lowered function: While sexual potential can carry through into quite older age, the erectile capacity and ejacualate volume decrease with age. Some lose desire which is entirely psychological.
