Balanitis: If you are uncircumcised, probably balanitis -- i.e. inflammation of the head of the penis. Most balanitis is due to yeast, perhaps especially if your partner is female and carrying yeast in her vagina; or "nonspecific" balanitis, which often clears with increased hygiene, i.e. soap & water twice daily. See a doctor if that doesn't clear it up within a few days. ...Read more

Blisters: Blisters are worrisome on the genitals because they can be caused by the herpes virus. Herpes is sexually transmitted. There are treatment options available. You need to see your doctor for a complete evaluation and testing to get a diagnosis. If it is herpes the lesions will resolve in 5 to 7 days. The bottom line is to see a doctor even if the blisters have resolved, a blood test can be done to make a diagnosis or you may be dealing with something else entirely.
Best of luck. ...Read more
