Itchiness, peeling penis skin. Cure?

Hi,am having this problem of itchiness and skin peeling off my foreskin for the last 10-15 days.I am married but presently staying alone,so have been abstaining from sex for the last 2 months or so.My personal hygiene is good.Also,there is high iron content in the water in this area(don't know if can be a cause or not). I am feeling itchiness under my foreskin and along the head aswell,with the skin peeling off.I am applying a moisturiser and feeling a little better.But not fully cured.Can you advise me regarding some home remedy/ application of some skin cream.

Hi there ~

I understand your concern and you need to see a dermatologist to help you with your condition of itchiness and peeling of your penile skin. I understand your concern and penis hurting while urinating may be due to a urinary tract infection (UTI) or due to a sexually transmitted disease (STD). In either case you would have to visit a doctor. If testing i.e. screening for STDs are normal and you do not have a UTI either you might have a benign or a malignant urological condition for which you need to visit with a urologist. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
