Contact dermatitis: Some cases of contact dermatitis can continue erupting for 3 weeks after initial contact, like poison ivy. Important to identify the substance to which you are allergic so that you don't come in contact with it again. Every time the skin comes in contact with an allergen, the reaction is quicker and stronger. Please see your dermatologist for possible patch testing to figure out the allergy. ...Read more

Dryness on penis, now with redness + pimple like marks and few cuts noticed. Doc said dermatitis so apply cortisoid creams & moisturizor. Not curing.?

Other thoughts: Just because the steroid isn't working doesn't mean it's not dermatitis.

Certain medications can also cause rashes on the penis and other mucus membranes. So let your doc know if you've been on any oral antibiotics recently. I hope this helps. ...Read more
