Hello,
Welcome to HCM.
It may be due to allergy or infection.
If pain, take paracetamol 500 mg.
Take levocetirizine 5 mg.
Maintain proper hygiene.
Avoid sex for few days.
Consult your skin specialist for examinations and if required for antibiotics.
Don't worry and take care....

one week ago, I started having irratation of the foreskin of the penis, and the frenulum is tight when retracted and is red and sore. Also folds upon traction. Its localized and like rash. When I void, it drips down to the frenulum and stings until I clean it, I do not think it is a STD. I have tried hydrocortisone cream and clotrimazole plus bethamethasone for couple of days, it cools the area down and gives me comfort, it does not seem to go down in swelling. When touching the area of swelling it hurts, and the frenulum is red and tight upon touch.

Redness of foreskin and irritation can be due to Genital Candidiasis,

Hello
Thanks for query.

The irritation of foreskin with redness is mostly due to G
Muco Cutaneous Genital Candidiasis with secondary bacterial infection (Posthatitis)

Get your blood sugar levels test on empty stomach and 2 hours after lunch dne to rule out Diabetes.

Take anti fungal medication like Fluconazole and antibiotic like Augmentin twice daily for a week along with topical anti fungal cream like Cotrmazole for local application.

Ensure to wash genitals with warm water twice daily.
