Balanitis causes redness of the glans or tip of the penis,tends to be itchy & caused by a yeast infection and can be passed back and forth between sexual partners. It is treated by antiyeast creams. Redness &burning feeling could also be from irritation caused by very frequent& vigorous masturbation. It would be best to see your MD or a urologist for accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

Weight?: I calculate maintenance calories based on weight and exercise. For little to no exercise- i would estimate by taking your current weight in pounds and multiply by a factor of 13... Ie you weigh 150 #s then you would need to take in and burn 1950 calories a day to maintain your weight. Preferably in 4-6 small lean protein containing meals.... Great question! thank you for asking !

Hmmmm: Doesnt sound like an std but no guarantees. It sounds like some sort of an irritation such as friction without proper lubrication, or more likely, from applying some type of gel, lotion, soap, etc which severely irritated your skin. I would recommend only using aquaphor or shea butter cream to the area for a few days and avoiding any other activity until resolves. See dr. If not better in 5 day.

Maybe nothing.: It could be an allergic reaction to something, such as a spermicidal gel that she may have used, or a direct irritant reaction. If you really suspect an std, see a doctor and get tested. And i hope you learned your lesson about unprotected sex!
