Before proceeding ahead,I would need to ask few questions so that I am in a better position to answer.

Do you masturbate?

Awaiting your reply.

Hello,
Your history suggests that you are having these symptoms because of some generalised allergy.Had the allergy been local,it would have remained in penis only.
Treatment involves local application of hydrocortisone cream locally and taking some oral anti allergic medications like Benadryl for few days.
You should be all right in next few days.
Make sure that hydrocortisone cream is applied for not more than week to 10 days.
If your symptoms persist beyond 10 days or if they flare even before that,you are advised to consult a dermatologist.
I hope it helps,however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
Thanks
