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.

Dermatology consult: I would recommend a dermatology consult if you have already tried and antifungal and antibacterial treatment. Sometimes it is difficult to differentiate between a fungal infection vs contact dermatitis vs eczema or other allergic or atopic dermatitis. Since you have had this for 2-3 months, it is time to have a specialist take a look at it if possible. ...Read more

Shaft of penis became very dry/red/itchy. This spread and now there is significant redness under my foreskin with light itch. Hydrocortisone time?

Hard to say: The best approach is finding out what might have caused the problem in the first place. On the other hand, there is little hard in trying topical hydrocortisone for 2-3 days. If problem persists or gets worse, see your doctor. (? latex allergy from condom) ...Read more
