Hi! This morning I noticed a small scab on my son's penis head. He has eczema, so could it be that or should I take him to the doc?

Try some vaseline: If the rest of his diaper area looks ok, then it is prob not eczema. Eczema typically spares the diaper area. If his penis is swollen, painful or has a lot of redness, then you should take him to his doc. If not, then can try plain Vaseline on his penis at diaper changes for a few days while the scab heals. ...Read more

I have a red rash on my penis shaft near my groin area. It is also secreting clear like fluid from the rash. Is it eczema/dermatitis/yeast infction?

Not likely: Johns123,
it sounds like something you need to have checked out by a physician. Based on the symptoms and signs you have described it could be several things. Eczema typically does not secrete clear fluid, nor does dermatitis. Yeast is a possibility but you still need to rule out other things such as herpatic lesions especially if there is pain associated with the rash. ...Read more

It may be jock itch: ...even if the Derm didn't find fungus on a slide or culture. Because the fungus can hide in the hair follicles, it may take longer than 10-14 days to get rid of it. If you still have symptoms, ask your Derm for a refill of Vytone. Fungi like heat & moisture, so keep the affected area clean and DRY, apply anti-fungal powder after bathing & wear cotton boxer shorts. Good luck! ...Read more
