Odour in penis. Layers of skin peeling off. Grey coloured rash on the tip. Solution?

Hi. I m 25 years old and male. I ve noticed a smell coming from my penis , even after a bath or shower. I m very clean and often shower twice a day. I sometimes notice layers of skin peeling off when I retract my foreskin , which can sometimes be sore and red, although probably only occurring once a month or so. I noticed in the bath today I have a grey coloured rash on the penis tip... Any ideas? It s making me miserable, but I m too embarrassed to see my gp :/

Hi, this may be a candidal infection.
candidal balanoposthitis (inflammation of glans) is usually seen in diabetics but may occur in healthy individuals too.
please meet a dermatologist to take appropiate treatment.
if not possible you can try oint clotrimazole twice daily for 15 days.

hope you get relief with this.
thank you
