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

Irritation...: It is difficult to give an impression without taking a look at it but possibilities are: irritation due to frequent friction and hydrocortisone cream can help with that.

No: If you have not had any sexual activity then the chance for std is near impossible. You could have an allergic reaction or other possible pathology's so you may need to get an evaluation to determine the cause.

Red rashes on glans penis and inside foreskin. Red patches and itchy. I live in a hostel.

Balanitis, phimosis: This is due to a tiny amount of URINE trapped under the foreskin. Yeasts and smegma bacteria ferment the urine into irritating products. Circumcision is a quick and easy cure. Castellani solution is very effective. Always hold back the foreskin during urination and hold back for a minute after. After urinating rinse off or blot with a tissue. ...Read more

Chem burn: Sensitive are of course, and appears you got a chemical burn. You can try soothing creams like aloe to help, and if it looks infected, you may need a dr. to look at it and rx an antibiotic cream like silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) which would help too. Best wishes. ...Read more

Red spot like rashes on the tip of my penis, itchiness and slight pain, moist and foul smell are some symptoms i have. Which type of doctor to go to?

Urologist or dermato: I assume you have a foreskin. Circumcision will cure it. Most men just need to learn how to manage it. It is due to tiny amount of urine fermenting under foreskin. In the shower, always pull back the skin so you can rinse it out. After passing urine, keep the skin back and blot or rinse under it. OTC azole creams (miconazole, clotrimazole, ketoconazole) will help. Modified, clear Castellani soluti ...Read more

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

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
