How to cure redness on penis?

My 10 yr old child has redness on his penis. It looks like blister too maybe. He says it doesn't itch. It stings. He says nobody else has touched him and I believe him. He can't recall his penis touching anything other than his underwear. I'm thinking some kind of fungal infection???

Hi....by what you quote I feel it could be balanoposthitis. Its an infection of the glans penis. But...Skin conditions are best diagnosed only after seeing directly. I suggest you to upload photographs of the same on this website, so that I can guide you scientifically.
