I've had this on ocassion before, too - I don't think it's something you should worry too much about. I know what you're describing - the area is likely very tender to the touch. I've also developed this condition sometimes when masturbating freequently. It also could be related to jock itch and/or the summer heat. Anyway - a good approach is to use a simple moisturizer on the affected area a couple of times a day. Also, try to give it a rest for a few days (not playing with it) so that it can get back in good shape. When the flaky skin and/or red tender area(s) are gone, he should be back ready for action - good luck!

Recently I ve had a dryness on the upper shaftof my penis. There is what I guess you d consider a small rash on the left side of my penis. I m unsure of what this is. Recently me and my girlfriend had sex. I wore a Trojan condom. Could this be from the condom. I ve put one on before and we ve had sex before and this never happened. I m very confused and very very worried. Any info would help.

All of a sudden my skin from face to feet got hot and red. My hands turned white and the circulation in my hands did not seem right. I got the chills and became very cold and shaky. I took a shower because I thought maybe it was from a body lotion but I have been using it for several weeks. It is called gold bond. This happened on Sunday and again just an hour ago. I have no idea what is going on

I have had deep cysts in my underarms and upper inner thigh area. They are often painful and drain either by pressure or on their own. They typically appear right before I menstruate. I have a cream to apply for treatment but I am wondering if I can get microdermabrasion to help with the discoloration from scarring and for just a smoother unclogged underarm.
