Question: I have a very itchy penis and rectum. I understand from previous history the itching in rectum could be due to some anxiety but this itch in penis is something new. I do not have any other internal irritation. Can you suggest which doctor to visit ? Is it an urologist or physican or skin specialist ?

Brief Answer:
Maybe fungal infection.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

It looks like a fungal infection. I would suggest you to apply Mycostatin ointment on the affected areas twice daily for 1 week. You can take Tab. Albendazole 400 mg once in the night and repeat the dose after 2 weeks to deworm.

Include lots of curds and yogurt in your diet.

You can visit a physician/ dermatologist for a detailed examination and treatment.

I hope this answered your query.
