Brief Answer: Get your self clinically examined. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for writing your query. After reading your post, I would like to advise that you should get yourself clinically examined and investigated. Redness on the penis can be due to cellulitis which can be treated by antibiotics and anti inflammatory medicines. The cause of incontinence and erectile dysfunction should be known. It can be due to nerve disorder. Following investigations may be helpful :- 1. MRI of Lumbosacral spine. 2. Ultrasound of KUB region. 3. Complete Blood Count ( CBC ). 4. Urine examination. You should maintain hygiene of the pelvic area. I hope this is helpful to you. If you have any further query, I will be happy to help. Regards. Thanks.
