Question: I have for the last 3 month's or so had this red blotch on the shaft of my penis at times it has a stinging sensation . It just appeared and i just assumed it was nothing and would eventually go away. I have not had sex or any sexual contact for a long period of time. So is there any input you can give me . If it continues i will make an appointment with my DR

Brief Answer:
friction rub with clothes, dermatitis, balanitis

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HCM.

Presently is it present, if so kindly upload the picture.
I cannot confirm anything without examination but rash due to friction rub with clothes, dermatitis, excessive sweating causing sweat dermatitis or balanitis.
You may try calamine lotion on the rash. You should also maintain hygiene and try to keep the area clean and dry, wear loose-fitting cotton clothing. Also use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove or dermadew.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination, for exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor.
Hope this helps.
Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

I keep getting what I think is carbuncles in my bottom. I take tegretol. I don't know I that makes a difference. I also suffer from insomnia. I have felt really tired and week in the last couple of weeks by about noon. What I have read states that it can be from not bathing, but I am very clean. I'm concerned that it may be some underlying problem I am not aware of. By the time one set starts getting better another set has started. It is very painful at times, sometimes even walking or sitting hurts. Is there some tests I need to request or maybe something I need to try at home to help eliminate this very aggravating problem? Thank You
