My private hurts why? I've had stuff rub on it before. It itches sometimes. I get pain most when I pee. Its kinda brown on the tips.

I: I am assuming you are a male and we are talking about your penis. If this is not correct, please re-post your question. Also please explain what "stuff" you are referring to.
Itching can be a yeast infection (jock itch) or could be secondary to an std (sexually transmitted disease) like crabs.
