Get checked/Urologis: A urologist is a specialist who can best help you as you may need circumcision once the pain and inflammation subsides. Right now this area needs to be cleaned properly before it will heal.
Wash it with warm water and gently pull back the skin back till all the white material collected under the skin (smegma) has been washed off. Repeat twice daily. ...Read more

Balanoposthitis: Balanoposthitis is the inflammatory condition you have described. It can be caused by untreated fungal/monilial infections. Topical anti-fungal creams may help.

My 9 yr old son started complaining of itching to his penis area. He did say he noticed he had some redness to his foreskin only. What cream is good?

Could be normal.: Jessica - in an uncircumcised boy, around the age of 10, the foreskin can start separating from the head of the penis (normal) and there can be some redness or irritation that goes away on its own. Before putting any extra creams or ointments on, make sure he's practicing good hygiene (cleans in shower beneath foreskin and dries well), and if present >1 week, should get checked out. ...Read more

Red Patch on Penis: A red patch on the head of the penis can arise for several reasons. When uncircumcised inflammation, called balanitis, is most common. Hygeine/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

Mycolog II: I prefer nystatin with triamcinolone cream to treat the fungal infection and the inflammation. It usually works. If not, a circumcision may be needed.

My 7 mnth old son's penis tip smells bad. No rash, no fever, no redness or discharge. Wht could it be? His doc pulled back foreskin to check. I m worried

Probably normal: If your doctor checked it and it looked normal, then it most likely is normal. There is a normal cheesy substance, called smegma, under the foreskin and that is probably what you are smelling. Don't forcefully pull the skin back if the penis is not circumcised. That will lead to pain, swelling and infection. ...Read more

After intercourse, I found a crack under the foreskin, at the joint of glans and foreskin. It was with blood and pain. There was also redness of glans. Is this due to some skin disease?

After intercourse, I found a crack under the foreskin, at the joint of glans and foreskin. It was with blood and pain. There was also redness of glans. Is this due to some skin disease?

Skin issue: If none of what your described was present before the intercourse and appeared after, I would think that the intercourse caused it. I don't think of any sexually transmitted disease if you discovered it right after the intercourse. It sounds like an intercourse related trauma. ...Read more

Hi I have just seen that I have small red dots on the inside of the tip of my foreskin but I'm a virgin what could it be?

Well if you: Are a "virgin" as you put it we can eliminate STD's as a possibility. (ie Herpes) The lesions you describe sound like "hemangiomata" (small clumps of capillaries the tiniest blood vessels in the body) THE ONLY WAY of BEING SURE is to have them checked out...start with your PCP (Primary Care Provider) Hope this helps!

I've had his small red patch on my foreskin for a few years now. It has never gotten worse nor does it itch or have pain. It feels a little rough.

Rash vs lesion: Both psoriasis and lichen planus can give penile rashes, that may have few symptoms. Less commonly, candidiasis and seborrheic dermatitis can also give persistent red patches. Most of these would improve with one week of otc mild cortisone cream. If no response, a skin biopsy should be done, as rarely pre-cancerous lesions can also look like this. ...Read more

Can sudocrem heal up a red foreskin?

Not likely: You may have phimosis. Need exam by a DR with knowledge about this area, best will be a dermatologist. This may be related to small amounts of urine fermenting under the foreskin. There are other possible explanations. Always retract the skin in the shower and while passing urine. Blot after urinating. Try miconazole (or other azole) cream. Castellani solution is excellent for this.Circumcision is ...Read more
