Urologist or dermato: I assume you have a foreskin. Circumcision will cure it. Most men just need to learn how to manage it. It is due to tiny amount of urine fermenting under foreskin. In the shower, always pull back the skin so you can rinse it out. After passing urine, keep the skin back and blot or rinse under it. OTC azole creams (miconazole, clotrimazole, ketoconazole) will help. Modified, clear Castellani soluti ...Read more

My boyfriend has a reddish rash around the underside of the head of his penis. It is red and itchy and sometimes has a whitish discharge?

Likely yeast: Sounds like a yeast infection. Needs treated to stop white discharge and for skin to heal. Heavy ointment like desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) may help improve situation quicker, but "standard" answer is antifungal ointment, couple times/day, likely for 2-6 weeks. Without getting evicted or arrested--"air time" will help some in drying & healing skin + make it inhospitable for yeast. Go condoms--no need to share yeast. ...Read more

May be fungus/yeast: It is very difficult to diagnose any kind of rash in genital area without looking at it. My guess is that it is a fungus or yeast infection. Try any antifungal like Monistat-derm. Follow the directions of using it properly and if not better in a week, see a Dermatologist if you can or see a family doctor. ...Read more
