Glans Penis Rashes: While rashes of the head of the penis (glans penis) tend not to be sexually transmitted, you should see your doctor. You could be experiencing an eruption related to friction from sexual activity. Other possibilities include lichen planus and zoon's balanitis. Much less likely at your age is an early carcinoma that can be related to human papilloma virus infection. Let your doctor help you! ...Read more

Hi so I notice I had like a red rash on my penis head and on my foreskin idk what that would be I'm really scared?

Get checked out: A rash on a penis can be many things. It can be an allergic reaction to detergent/soap, can be dry skin, it could be an STD like herpes, or a bacterial skin infection or a yeast or fungal infection. I would recommend that someone with a rash on their penis go in to be seen either at their primary care doctors office, an urgent care center or a urologist. I wouldn't wait to see if it goes away. ...Read more

To verify what they could be, one needs more info on the specifics & relevance of all symptoms stressing sequence of events + a direct look at. How to have these related things done correctly?

I have chrons disease in the past 2 years I been getting this red rash on my penis head I am not circumcised. White discharge?

See answer: Some degree of white discharge is normal in uncircumcised males and jrepresents the normal secretions (aka smegma) that occur from the sebaceous glands of the penis. If discharge is heavier than normal and/or associated with redness or irritation, then likely due to a yeast/fungal infection (more common in diabetics). Good hygiene, a topical antifungal cream and/or oral Fluconazole will resolve. ...Read more

May be fungus/yeast: It is very difficult to diagnose any kind of rash in genital area without looking at it. My guess is that it is a fungus or yeast infection. Try any antifungal like Monistat-derm. Follow the directions of using it properly and if not better in a week, see a Dermatologist if you can or see a family doctor. ...Read more

Red blisters+rash on head of penis, right side. Herpes/syphilis tests negative. Prescribed antifungal cream/antibiotics. What else could it be?

Balanitis: Balanitis is an inflammation of the glans penis (head). It typically occurs in the uncircumcised and causes a bright red rash. It is most often due to a fungus and is treated with topical antifungal creams usually with cortisone type anti-infalmmatory steroid added (eg. Mycolog ii cream). ...Read more

Hi I just noticed that before the head of the penis I have these red small rashes. They are not bumps, you can't feel a bump when you touch it?

Hi I just noticed that before the head of the penis I have these red small rashes. They are not bumps, you can't feel a bump when you touch it?

Most likely, ok...: As long as no local discomfort, such rashes may suggest mild balanitis (inflammation of glans penis), which is usually related with redundant foreskin with poor local hygiene. Without detailed history and inspection, it's hard to make a firm statement.

If any doubt, go to see an expert in the field.

Best luck... ...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?

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

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. Without getting evicted or arrested--"air time" will help some in drying & healing skin + make it inhospitable for yeast. Go condoms--no need to share yeast. ...Read more

Doctor can evaluate: Rashes and spots are hard to describe and visualize in words. A primary care doctor or a urologist can check glans (penis head) rashes to see what they might be. Possibilities include friction damage, an infection (such as hpv wart virus), peeling or color changes after inflammation, an allergic reaction, etc... ...Read more
