did you get my answer?
This itching could be caused by an STD, or it could be caused by something else.Itching of the penis can be associated with gonorrhea and chlamydia among other germs.Another possibility is that you may be suffering from a fungal infection. Also your blood sugar may be high.Diabetics pick it up more readily than some other people do.

The exact diagnosis can only be made after physical examination & tests.So I advice you to make an appointment with your doctor.
