Thanks. Is there a personal or family history of a condition called psoriasis? Do you have skin skin problems anywhere else? Is this itchy/ sore?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No sir no history. Never had any problems until now. For last 6 months. After she gave me head and rubbed my skin raw. It's like it is color of scared skin now. And it's just flaky and ashy. And scaly and on the rim of penis. Doesn't hurt. I I rub it and pull the skin off it irritates it. But doesn't hurt. On the rim where it's ashy It's rough to the touch. and flaky and peeling.

I didn't know if it was like a yeast infection. Or what.
Expert:  Dr. S. Attili replied 1 year ago.

Thanks. This looks like a condition called psoriasis. Psoriasis usually affectes a number of areas of the body, but it can sometimes just affect the penis. Yes, a yeast infection is another possibility. But yeast infections do not last this long.

Please try two over the counter creams: cortisone & lotrimin. o mix both creams in equal amounts and apply them twice a day for 2-4 weeks. Both yeast infection and psoriasis should respond to this treatment. If this doesn't respond in 4 weeks, I would suggest you see your doctor and get a prescription for a cream containing 'clobetasol propionate' and apply it once a day for 2 weeks. In any case, this is nothing serious. However psoriasis can be a recurrent problem and is exacerbated by friction. Therefore I would suggest using a moisturiser like petroleum jelly 3-4 times a day to minimise friction.

Hope this helps. Do keep me posted & get back if you have any further questions or feel that I have missed out anything. Please do not hesitate to ask. I will be here to provide ongoing advice as necessary.
Best wishes.
