I've been tested for gonorrhea, herpes and HIV and the results came back negative. I'm wondering how would I get rid of peeling skin on my penis?

Not an STD: Welcome to HealthTap. Thanks for your question. None of these STDs (nor any other) cause "peeling skin". Even if one of your STD tests had been positive, it would not explain this symptom. Any number of non-STD skin conditions could be possible. See a clinic or doctor for professional evaluation.

There: There are several conditions that can cause peeling of the skin on your feet. Any process that triggers rapid renewal of the epidermis on your feet will contribute to thickened, peeling skin; in many cases this problem is merely due to an occupation that demands a lot of walking or standing.
Your doctor can readily diagnose a fungal infection by obtaining a skin scraping and examining it under a microscope. If this doesn't reveal the cause of your peeling, he/she can investigate for other potential causes (circulation problems, dyshidrosis, ichthyosis, autoimmune disorders, etc.).
If you haven't seen your doctor about this issue yet, I recommend you do so. ...Read more

I have peeling skin on my face and it looks horrible due to sunburn! Should I put any creams/lotions or will it make it worse? Face looks really dirty

Apply unscented: Moisturizing lotion. Do not try to peel the skin yourself. Although that may seem to help, it will just peel more and possibly lead to bleeding, infection and scarring. Be careful of any makeup you apply, which could make the peeling worse. Also, stay out of the sun until this is healed and then make sure you're diligent with sunscreen and re-applying for the future. ...Read more
