Pinkish penis head. Took antibiotics. Dryness with peeling skin. Cure?

My penis head is a bright pink, it has spread a little further down my head. I saw a dermitologist at the Cleveland Clinic who put me on an antibiotic, a cleaning soap and a cream. It seemed to help initially, but now 6 weeks later it is still pink and itchy
It seems to get worse if I masturbate or have sex. If I rub the underside it feels good but hurts as well and then seems to break out to dry skin and peeling

Hi there ~

I understand your concern and that your glans penis is turning pinkish and is becoming dry and with peeling skin. I would think that you need to consult a dermatologist who can address your concern. I also think that cleaning is also a good idea as suggested by the doctor. I advise you to stop masturbating for a little while till the issue resolves. If it is also that your penis hurting while urinating may be due to a urinary tract infection (UTI) or due to a sexually transmitted disease (STD). In either case you would have to visit a doctor. If testing i.e. screening for STDs are normal and you do not have a UTI either you might have a benign or a malignant urological condition for which you need to visit with a urologist. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
