Hi! XXXXXXX
Thanks for your query.
Yes, it is possible to get infection of penis, without having intercourse. It is especially true in summer and monsoon, when there is lot of humidity. The infection may be fungal in origin. The fungus thrives in hot and humid places, especially where the two opposite skin touch each other, like in between thighs or in between underarms.
You may check your urine (routine & micro). Also get your Blood Sugar (both fasting and two hours after meals) checked.

As symptomatic treatment, till you get the reports done, you may try some Over the Counter (OTC) antifungal medicine to be applied locally. Keep the local are dry and cool, may be by staying in air-conditioned room.

Waiting eagerly for your follow-up.

Hi! XXXXXXX

You may take Over the Counter (OTC) antifungal cream which are less potent like CANDID.

Other measures should be followed.
