Hi i hv couple of red patches on my penis....It itches and burns . I am uncircumcised bt clean it daily.

Here are some ...: See a urologist so to decide if the red patches with itch and burn are related with long tight foreskin. If so, lightly apply topical anti-fungal with steroid cream 1-2 times daily for 3-5 days. If not improved in 3-5 days under pro-supervision, but eventually, circumcision is usually needed for long-term care. ...Read more

Under the tip of my penis is red and i can peel skin off of it. Sometimes it itches and when i peel the skin of it sometimes beleeds, can someone help?

Here are some ...: See urologist to help you figure out what is the underlying reasons for causing the rough skin with peelable skin, such as long foreskin with recurrent chronic inflammation. For the time being, keep the area as clean & dry as possible + apply antifungal-steroid cream lightly 1-2 times daily for 5-7 days and see. If not improved or worse, see Doc soon....

Red swelling of right side of penis occurred, likely from sex and Nuvaring contact. Itches slightly, continues to after abstaining from sex. Advice?

Red swelling of right side of penis occurred, likely from sex and Nuvaring contact. Itches slightly, continues to after abstaining from sex. Advice?

Reasons for Redness: Redness on the penis after sexual activity is fairly common and can occur from Nuvaring contact. Hydrocortisone can alleviate both the redness and the swelling. Altering sexual position may reduce contact with the Ring. If the redness does not resolve, you should visit with a urologist.

I have little red bumps on my penis head and it just itches and ive had for about 3 days. What could this be from?

Here are some ...: What you described is acute so it is related either with acute infection / inflammation or with physical / allergy-related irritation. But, regardless of its cause, the essence of care is same with keeping the affected area as clean, dry, & ventilated as possible (of course, with washing/drying) plus gingerly using antifungal + steroid cream 1-2 times daily of ...Read more

He : He may be dealing with a fungal infection aka jock itch (tinea cruris). An over the counter anti-fungal cream like Clotrimazole should help if this is in fact the problem. On the other hand, if the small red bump persists, or is very painful there may be something else going on like a genital wart, herpetic lesion, or bacterial infection (abscess). I suggest he try the Clotrimazole first, and if that does not work see a doctor. Best of luck and happy new year. ...Read more

If a specific location where a red bump on my penis is never itches, burns, crusts over, etc, can it still be herpes? Usually itches all over.

If a specific location where a red bump on my penis is never itches, burns, crusts over, etc, can it still be herpes? Usually itches all over.

Not herpes: Herpes doesn't behave at all like this. Neither does any other STD. Maybe a localized allergy or other dermatitis. See a doctor. If the "red bump" is present only now and then, talk to your doctor about arranging an immediate visit (without an advance appointment) next time it appears. ...Read more

What are these red bumps with white pus-like tips on the shaft and base of my penis that is like a rash and itches, there are a lot. I'm a virgin.

Bumps on penis: This may be nothing more than irritation and common blocked hair cells. There is a chance they are warts but not likely at your age. If the rash is in any way panful or the white spots spread please find a way to get to a school nurse or a clinic where you can privately have this evaluated at. Your pediatrician is also likely to know what to do. ...Read more

Balanitis: This is due to a tiny amount of urine under the foreskin. Smegma and other microorganisms proliferate as they feed on the urine. It is not an infection, but the metabolic products of these microbes is irritating. Make sure you wash and blot under the foreskin before sleep. Castellani solution wipes out the microorganisms and stops this symptom. It can be repeated when needed. A circumcision is cur ...Read more

I am experiencing penile discharge, unpleasant smell, itching, penis head is very sensitive, dried smegma, white lumps, Ureaplasma urealyticum? Doxycy

STD? Balanitis?: Probably an STD, much more likely gonorrhea or chlamydia than Ureaplasma, which is a normal bacteria in the genital tract and rarely causes symptoms or disease of any kind. If uncircucised, this might be fungal or nonspecific balanitis, not an STD and might clear up with twice daily foreskin retraction and washing. Either way, you need professional exam and probably STD testing. Good luck! ...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
