Doctor can evaluate: Rashes are difficult to describe in words. If one has little bumps on the head of his penis, and std's have been ruled out, they could be "pearly penile papules", which are small, skin-colored papules that usually are located on the edge of the head of the penis (visible when the foreskin is pulled all the way back). Pearly penile papules are considered normal. A doctor can evaluate the bumps. ...Read more

Smegma: The underside of the foreskin sheds skin that must be washed away to avoid smegma (product of dead skin cells, oils, urine and sweat). This most likely is causing the odor. Your bf must retract his foreskin every time he urinates and when he washes for thorough hygiene. ...Read more

I have chrons disease in the past 2 years I been getting this red rash on my penis head I am not circumcised. White discharge?

See answer: Some degree of white discharge is normal in uncircumcised males and jrepresents the normal secretions (aka smegma) that occur from the sebaceous glands of the penis. If discharge is heavier than normal and/or associated with redness or irritation, then likely due to a yeast/fungal infection (more common in diabetics). Good hygiene, a topical antifungal cream and/or oral Fluconazole will resolve. ...Read more

Husband is not circumcised and the head of his penis is peeling. You can rub your finger over it and the skin will come off.?

Husband is not circumcised and the head of his penis is peeling. You can rub your finger over it and the skin will come off.?

Not to worry: This is a type of eczema. Have him try to rub in 1% Hydrocortisone cream 2 times each day. In addition, whenever he baths and the area is soaking wet, while still wet, rub in vasaline petroleum jelly for 30 seconds then towel dry. This condition is most likely chronic and will always come back. But if you do the above treatments, he should do well when it occurs. ...Read more

I have a brownish small spot on the head of my penis. I have never had sexual intercourse and I am not circumcised. Is it possible it's a birth mark?

Brown or Deep Purple: Yes. It might be a birthmark (congenital nevus) or a simple mole (nevus).Be sure it doesn't change in shape, size, color, & the edges are not jagged. If so go to the Doctor.
But, it might be a tiny bruise that would fade away. It might be an Angiokeratoma of Fordyce: tiny benign (not cancer) bump of blood covered with skin, they stay forever, you may get more on scrotum, if bleeds, put pressure. ...Read more

May be inborn...: Clearly & clinically, these discolored spots on your penile skin could represent an inborn innocuous skin change as demonstrated in history - called vitiligo or leukodermia. Nevertheless, having a direct look is still the must for deducing right diagnosis for right care, which would be do nothing. More? Contact wwwlHealthTap.

2 days ago I got what looks like a rash on the head of my penis it itches like crazy me and my girlfriend have no STD of any kind any thoughts?

Many possibilities: Most genital skin rashes are not STDs, and your description doesn't sound like an STD. Some likely to itch are eczema, scabies, contact dermatitis or other allergy, psoriasis (especially if you have psoriasis elsewhere). It could be a fungal or bacterial infection, especially if you are uncircumcised. Whatever the cause, it isn't likely to be serious. See a doctor for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more
