Since the penis is sticking out from the body, it can also become cold too. Now if you are having pain, discoloration, or anything else unusual, certainly see a physician. ...Read more

There : There are many possible source of your "rash". Allergic reaction: could you be sensitive to the material or elastic in a swimsuit, panties, shorts or pants? If so, an antihistimene tablet would help (benadryl, claritin, (loratadine) zyrtec) yeast: typically red with well defined borders, and a hazy white surface. May or may not have clumpy-white discharge. You can try any of the yeast preparations. Irritant: extremely itchy and red. Try an anti-itch cream (outside only). The drug stores have 1% hydrocortisone. Good luck. ...Read more
