My finance has very dry peeling skin on his penis and has no STDs what could be wrong?

Dermatitis: I would think that either it is due to irritation from friction or a low grade yeast infection. If due to irritation due to friction then a moisterizer and avoiding the friction that is irritatiing the glans will work. If a low grade yeast infection then over the counter Clotrimazole two to three times a day will also work a majority of the time. ...Read more

If my tongue breaks out kinda white color of the tip can peel skin off every morning or every other morning do I have std?

Not STD: No STD is a likely cause of symptoms like this. See your doctor for professional advice and diagnosis, but don't worry about STD. If you may be at risk for STD (new partner, partner with other partners, etc), you probably should have routine STD testing, while it's on your mind. But even if something turns up positive, probably it wouldn't explain your mouth problem. Good luck. ...Read more

Causes from skin to peel once on and under glans badly 5 years ago leaving skin to this day painfully sensitive thin fragile no STD I'm circumcised?

Painful genitals: I am not 100% sure I understand your question - but it sounds like you are asking about a continually painful penile lesion. I think a urologist needs to see that - and probably perform a biopsy to determine what is the problem. I once saw a case of Paget's disease of the genitals which should be on the differential diagnosis here.

Dry peeling skin on differin (adapalene) is this a good sign?

Yes: This is exactly what one should expect from a topical retinoid (differin (adapalene) is a retinoid). In the early studies on this class of medicine the researchers felt that if a patient is not getting red and peeling then the strength of the retinoid is not high enough. This side effect can often resolve or can be alleviated with a simple noncomedogenic moisturizer. Good question. ...Read more

How do you reduce skin peeling while using differin (adapalene) gel?

Change treatments.: Differin (adapalene) also comes in cream form - creams are less drying than gels. If the cream still causes peeling, use less of it, or apply it at bedtime, or both. If it still dries your skin, ask your dermatologist for a different treatment. Trying to neutralize a drying skin treatment with moisturizers is an exercise in futility, and defeats the whole purpose. ...Read more
