Any Moisturiser: If it is only dry, you can use any over the counter moisturizer immediately after taking bath and that will take care of the dryness.

Itchy flaky skin on penis and scrotum. Moisturizer resolves the issue temporarily. Is there a permanent solution?

Eczema: It is very common for men to develop eczema or psoriasis on their penis first. Thus this problem may first require a physician's examination and diagnosis. But, if this is the condition then treatment is easily managed by the family physician.

Penis and Skin: It is very common for men who are going to develop psoriasis to have this start on their penis first. The other common problem that could be what you describe is a yeast infection. I would get to your family doctor to see if this is indeed psoriasis.

Used retin A (tretinoin) twice on penis head...skin burned, reddish and sore patches. Applying Vaseline, moisturizer for 3 days. Can I apply Betnovate ointment?

Used retin A (tretinoin) twice on penis head...skin burned, reddish and sore patches. Applying Vaseline, moisturizer for 3 days. Can I apply Betnovate ointment?

Stop: I have no idea why you want to put Retin A (tretinoin) on your penis head since there is no wrinkle there. If anything, try topical hydrocortisone for a few days to calm the inflammation down (I presume however that Betnovate is a brand of cortisone containing betamethasone. If so, it is ok to use it once a day for 3-4 days but no more).

Is there any thing I can use to moisturize my penis head and foreskin and inside foreskin? It's very dry and cracky looking

Mousturizers: First of all the area must be kept very clean and dry. Sometimes hard to do in an uncircumcised male. Then can try some gentle creams like vitamin d cream emu oil. These are wonderful. Could even try a touch of baby lotion with oil.

Can I put baby oil on my glands to moisturize my penis?

Can I put baby oil on my glands to moisturize my penis?

Yes, you may, but...: Yes, you may but always watch for potential side effects from any new agent in use; this is the general rule of using drug. However, the concern is why you need such use since you are only 17 and supposed to have soft tender skin. Therefore have doc take a look to see if your concern on glans penis is related with long foreskin as the underlying reason. For long-term care, modify underlying cause.

What can be used to safely moisturize the penis? I have had dry skin on head and shaft and the area in between has been cut during masturbation twice.

What can be used to safely moisturize the penis? I have had dry skin on head and shaft and the area in between has been cut during masturbation twice.

Song: "Slow Hand": What do you use to masturbate, sandpaper? Moisturizers with lanolin in them moisturize effectively, especially if the skin is cracked. Please make sure you aren't too irritated or you might get an infection. And any skin lesion leaves you more open to sexually transmitted diseases.After everything has settled down, resume your regular masturbatory schedule with a water soluble lubricant (check on line)

Cant tell: This may represent psoriasis, eczema or another condition. There are other possiblities including reiters syndrome. It is best you see a dermatologist ot examine the whole body for signs of a skin disease or even a systemic disease with skin manifestations.

DERMATITIS: Dermatitis or inflamed skin. You need something hypoallergenic and fragrance free. Aquaphor/amilactin/Eucerin are all effective. If it persists follow up for exam and labs. Especially evaluate for thyroid disease

My penis skin got burnt by acretin. Its peeling, reddish and hurts. Can I use vaseline or moisturizing cream to heal it? Help for healing.

Try steroid cream...: By the reported sequence of events, you got contact dermatitis, for which you may try applying 0-5-1% hydrocortisone ointment gingerly twice daily and see. How soon does the topical symptoms may improve and fade? That depends on personal constitutional features. So, try it, watch, & see, and seek evaluation if not improving / resolving as expected; it is okay as long as getting better day by day.

How to moisturize scrotum and penis skin? Is it safe to use moistrizers or body lotions? What can be used for this?

Probably okay. ..: It's probably okay to use moisturizers or body lotions to the scrotum. But, the first question is: do you need them and why do you want to use them? Known to us, skin is our first line of natural barrier defense and systemic immune system follows; both make us live well. How? That is genetic factors + healthy lifestyle. So, have a medical help to decide why you need them. At times, allergy to. ..
