How can itching in the penis be treated in a 20-year-old?

I ve used Dr. Bronner s Peppermint soap for the past 3-4 months, and my skin is fine except for my penis. It itches every so often and it turns a bit red plus I get dead skin around it. I m 20 and still a virgin by the way. How can I stop it and have my area back to normal?

Hi,

It can be due to allergy to soap. Contact dermatitis. It can be due to fungal infection. Share a picture for conformation.

I hope I have answered your query. If you have further doubts, I would be happy to help you.

Regards,
Dr. S. R. Raveendran, Sexologist
