dry skin and redness on penis
Mar 14, 2002

A couple of days ago I noticed that there was a little red area on my penis. It just looked like it was irritted and dry. The dry area got bigger. But it does not itch, no discharge, no puss and no discomfort at all. Just wondering what it could possibly be. I have never had anything like this before

Response from Dr. Feinberg

It sounds like it may be a fungal dermatitis. See a physician for a definitive diagnosis.

Do I need prophylaxis?
very nervous, please answer
