Hello dear...
The itching on your glans penis may be due to Lichen planus or Lichen sclerosis.
This is an inflammatory condition usually associated with severe itching.
You need to meet a Dermatologist for exact diagnosis & cure.
Please don't the condition may aggravate.
One more thing...avoid using any Over The Counter medication.
Wishing you good health.
Thanks & take care.

Hi Pramod,

Thanks for writing your query.

It will be helpful if you give more information like
1. Is there any rash or eruptions on the penis?
2. Any recent sexual contact?
3. Since how long you are having this problem?

Common causes of itching in penis are allergic and sexually transmitted diseases. Other causes can be fungal infection, tight clothing,etc.

You can apply locally ointment containing steroid like betamethasone in addition to antifungal like miconazole and antibacterial like gentamycin.
Apply this ointment 2-3 times in a day.
You can also take orally one tablet of fenofexadine 180 mg for relief in addition to the above mentioned ointment.

Keep your genital area clean. Donot use harsh perfumed soaps. Wear clean and comfortable undergarments.

I hope this is helpful to you.
