Brief Answer:
Possible Candida infection

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for trusting HealthcareMagic for your health concern

The red rash along with creamy discharge is likely to be Candida infection(yeast infection). It would be very helpful if you could upload a picture of the rash so that I can confirm the diagnosis.
Management of Candida infection is detailed below
-Oral fluconazole 150 mg one dose
-Topical Lotrimin anti fungal ointment
-keep the area clean and dry
-wear loose fitting cotton undergarments

The decrease in size of penis and sex drive is due to age related decrease in testosterone levels.
Confirmation of diagnosis is by measuring blood testosterone level and management is with testosterone replacement therapy.

Hope this answers your question
