What causes rash on glans penis?
Pictures of the redness inflammation around the corona. It is irritated and but only slight discomfort. Has persisted for a week and at times has dry peeling skin
Slight inflammation, mild to non noticeable rash
Thank you for asking
I read your question and i understand your concern. Your corona is slightly inflamed but there is no markedly visible rash on it to worry about. A recent aggressive coitus or a masturbation can cause this. Tight clothes like jeans etc can also cause it. Dry peeling skin though with this slight discomfort .
If no recent unprotected coituses, then fungal infection may be the case like attributed to hygiene issues as prolonged wearing of tight clothes, sweating in undergarments etc.
I would like you to rest for a while, abstain from intimacy and apply some topical steroid creams low dose hydrocortisone from the market over it and modify coital and toilet habits like no masturbation, wearing loose airy undergarments preferably cotton. post coital voiding and keeping the groin hair free.
Hydrocortisone cream is enough for the time being. If the itching continues or the peeling skin, add an antifungal to it. Talk to a doctor or internist nearby if the issue does not resolve with above mentioned tips .
I hope it helps. take good care of yourself and don't forget to close the discussion please.
Very well. Thanks doc!
A week tops
Thank you for getting back to me
With good hygiene maintenance, abstinence from any more triggers nd friction and topical application, i would say a week or a few days tops. If the symptoms persist then get to a doctor and let them have a look, Dry and peeling skin can also be managed with some topical lubricant like petroleum jelly etc or vaseline .
I hope it helps.
You are welcome
I will be here for you if you need me.
