Doctor :   Let me brief you.
User :   ok
Doctor :   The cause for these rashes can only be determined by a physical examination.
User :   ok
Doctor :   However, the symptoms are inline with the symptoms of an viral infections (probably herpes infections).
Doctor :   Since I cannot perform a physical examination online, I would suggest you to inform him to consult a dermatologist for physical examination.
User :   when he moves the foreskin back its at the end of his penis if that helps
User :   ok
Doctor :   In the mean time, I would suggest these measures.
Doctor :   Wash the affected regions with mild soap and water.
User :   ok can i just ask would thrush be a diagnosis maybe
Doctor :   A fungal infections cause severe itching than blistered lesions.
Doctor :   And you occasionally have white discharge too.
Doctor :   Hence I do not feel they could be a thrush.
User :   he doesnt have itching or discharge
Doctor :   Yes,
Doctor :   These are the factors ruling against the diagnose of thrush.
