I have peeling skin on the head of my penis. It's red and itchy. What is this?

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.

There's some redness just below my lips. It looks like skin peeling. What is it? What could have caused it?

See below: This sounds like a contact reaction from some sort of exposure to an irritant or eczema. It could be from biting your lower lip or from licking your lips or sucking on your lower lip. It also could be from anything that you are placing in your mouth and is sticking out and rubbing below your lips. Have your doctor take a look to be sure. You can try some Vaseline or Aquaphor on the area first.
