Thanks for the query

The Itch on penis shaft is mostly associated with yeast or fungal infection. The medication helpful are local antiallergic and steroid ointment cream. Yeast or fungal infections are mainly diagnosed on clinical basis however you can send the skin scrapings for serology and microscopy to diagnose the problem.
