Hello. Welcome to Healthcaremagic.com. I have read your query. I understand your concern.
As per details, there are following possibilities for your symptoms :
1 ) Candidial Balanoposthitis : it is fungal infection of skin involving the glans. It is characterised by red colored itchy rash over glans. It is more common in Diabetics.
2) Zoon's balanitis- it is also known as Plasma cell balanitis. It is characterised by deep red or orange colored rash over glans. It ia usually asymptomatic.
Treatment depends on the diagnosis. It would have been better if you could attach photographs of the affected area.
You should visit your doctor so that he can examine you and give you prescription accordingly. You can share my opinion with him. I hope it helps.
it is not related to symbicort
It is highly unlikely to be related to Symbicort inhalor you have been taking.

Hello. Welcome back. I have seen the attached photograph also. Thanks for attaching the image. The whole glans is erythematous. It look like irritant contact dermatitis. I would like to know whether you have applied anything over the area or have used condoms ?
How did it start?
For how long you have been getting the area bloody red?
Is it persistent or the redness disappear in between?
Kindly reply to my questions so that I can help you to my best. Take care.
On occasion i have used condoms to masturbate so i dont release bodily fluid everywhere
It started yesterday i urinated and then my penis head began to itch amd burn a little everytime i would take a step my penis would rub against my boxers and itch rather badly
It has always been red to my knowledge
It normally stays redish pink color this is the first time that it has been as red as it is now....
Hello. Welcome back.
As per details, the most likely possibility for your symptoms is a condition of skin called candidial balanitis. It is characterised by red colored itchy rash over glans. It is fungal infection of skin involving the glans.
In such cases, I prefer to advise oral antifungals like clotrimazole cream and tablet fluconazole to my patients. Keep the area clean and dry. You may take antihistaminics like levocetrizine for symptomatic relief of itch.
Visit your doctor so that he can examine you and give you prescription. You can share my opinion with him. I hope it helps.
