Exam: It is impossible to know exactly what it is without an exam. See your doctor. Unless you have a discharge or sores, it is unlikely to be serious. All the best. ...Read more

Diaper rash is an irritation of the skin caused by dampness, urine, or feces. Most babies who wear diapers will have some type of diaper rash. However, there are other skin disorders that can cause rashes. These are usually not serious unless ...Read more

Hello, 

I had unprotected sex-am a male-with a woman 6 days ago.  This was my first partner in 7 years  and previously only had one partner.  about 4 1/2 days later I noticed a red rash (slightly raised) near the base of my penile shaft.  It still remain

Probably not an STD: No STD causes this sort of rash or in this location. If primarily blisters that become pimples then open sores or scab-covered, herpes would be a concern. But this sounds more like physical irritation, allergy (e.g. vaginal hygiene product), or a superficial non-STD skin infection, e.g. fungal. It doesn't sound worrisome, but if it continues or you remain concerned, see a doctor. Good luck! ...Read more

Rashes: It sounds like your skin may be sensitive to something you're using when you masturbate. Or, your vigorous motion could be producing skin inflammation that goes away rapidly. If using oils or other lubricants, make sure these are ones your skin can tolerate. ...Read more

I noticed small red rash-like bumps on the shaft of my penis in several areas, and it has been itching. Any idea what it may be?

I noticed small red rash-like bumps  on the shaft of my penis in several areas, and it has been  itching.  Any idea what it may be?

Need to be seen!: Best thing to do is to have it checked by a dermatologist. If the small bumps are dome shaped with a central dimple, it could be molluscum contagiosum. This is a skin rash caused by a viral infection that can spread by sexual contact. Early lesions on the genitalia may be mistaken for herpes or warts but, unlike herpes, these lesions are painless. Have it checked and diagnosed. Hope this helps. ...Read more
