hi
your problem is rashes on penis, is it related with mastrubation or rashes appearing after sexual intercourse
If appearing after sexual intercourse it may be sexual transmitted disease. so its better consult venerologist if you having any signs of infection, discharge or ulcer.

due to unhygiene you may got pleasant itiching with or without excoriation may be due to taenia infectionand scabiies (but it wil have family history), rashes alone may be due to allergy to inner garments
