Is penis redness on the glans edge dangerous?

Is penis redness on the glans edge dangerous?

Red Patch on Penis: A red patch on the head of the penis can arise for several reasons. If you are not circumcised, this could be inflammation, called balanitis. Steroid creams help. If you have started any new meds, it could be a fixed drug eruption. Stopping the meds helps, but it is a harmless event.
If it is growing in size and doesn't respond to the above in a week or two, I recommend a urological evaluation. ...Read more

Hi there what are the symptoms of penis thrush redness of the glans?

Hi there what are the symptoms of penis thrush redness of the glans?

Thrush and others: If you are uncircumcised, a yeast infection (thrush) could do this, but so could be "nonspecific" banalitis, bacterial overgrowth, or other causes. Best to be professionally evaluated. Or you could try simple hygiene first -- retract foreskin and wash with soap and water twice a day -- then get care if it doesn't clear up in a few days. ...Read more

Hi...I was taking Augmentin for 2 days and developed a rash on my leg and on the head of my penis, the redness on my leg is going away but on my peni?

Hi...I was taking Augmentin for 2 days and developed a rash on my leg and on the head of my penis, the redness on my leg is going away but on my peni?

Reasonable to. ..: To suspect skin reaction (allergy) after taking a drug like Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) is reasonable but not confirmative. Being not anaphylactic in nature, future repetitive experience may tell. At present, just leave it alone if bearable or just apply steroid-containing skin cream lightly 1-2 times daily and watch for 3-5 days; if not resolving as wished or worsening, seek evaluation and counseling timely. ...Read more

Tip of penis discomfort. Some redness and itching. No sores. Has been ongoing 2 months. Herpes?

Not likely herpes: Hello :
a herpes infection is unlikely to last 2 months. We would have to look at other causes of this problem.
psoriasis, contact dermatitis from soaps, and lubricants used during sexual activity. A rash on the scalp. For example, or the knees and elbows would make this more likely psoriasis. The causes of a rash in this area of the body are usually complex and require patience. ...Read more

Get Checked: There are several conditions that can cause this, and it sounds like one called balanitis. Common causes are fungal infections, but can also be bacterial or allergic. You should see a dermatologist for a full evaluation in your case. You may try diphenhydramine (brand Benadryl) for symptoms until it is evaluated and treated. ...Read more

Dryness on penis, now with redness + pimple like marks and few cuts noticed. Doc said dermatitis so apply cortisoid creams & moisturizor. Not curing.?

Other thoughts: Just because the steroid isn't working doesn't mean it's not dermatitis. But i'd also consider fungal infection (which can worsen with steroids), herpes, and bacterial infection as part of our "differential". Certain medications can also cause rashes on the penis and other mucus membranes. So let your doc know if you've been on any oral antibiotics recently. I hope this helps. ...Read more

What can cause the top of my nine yr olds penis to itch. No redness and dr found no symptoms like eczema. Botched circumsision?

Contact dermatitis?: Sometimes a nine year old is not the best at toilet hygiene and after urination there may be some urine present on and around the glans. Urine is irritating and cause itching, or later redness, rash in the area. Also the moist, warm environment make things even worse. Circumcision issues is unlikely as cause for the itching. Use some baby wipes after peeing for a week and see if that helps. ...Read more
