Itching inside penis

Brief Answer:
Very commonly complained

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Most times the itching is because of the dryness of the inner skin. The dryness could be because of different reasons including improper hygiene, infection, allergy to condom or garment.

Clean it with water and mild soap twice a day. Apply lubricants like Aloe vera / Jelly on the inner surface of the skin. It should subside on its own.

If you see a visible rash or pimples on the inner side of the skin or on the glans of the penis, please see a local doctor.

Hope this helps.

Brief Answer:
Infection

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

At this age if you are sexually active and do not take necessary precautions there is a high chance of STD. An Sexually transmitted disease can cause that symptom. The infection may spread to the prostate as well to cause that itch that cannot relieve on scratch.

You need to consume alkaline solution to flush out the toxins causing the feel. You need to drink a lot of fluids and cranberry juice as well. A urine examination might be helpful to rule out serious infections. Refrain from intercourse, alcohol, coffee and carbonated beverages for at least a month.

Hope this helps.
