Customer Question

Hi There,
I had unprotected sex last night and within 6 hours I noticed a red rash half the size of a dime on my penis head. I also noticed a slight rash along the upper right part of my shaft. I would usually assume this was just from rough sex and friction, but the weird thing is this happens a lot after sex and the red marks happen in the same exact spot. There are no visible blisters, ulcers or symptoms of hsv. My gf did have BV a few months ago so I'm wondering if it is from that? I just find it odd the red marks happen in the same exact spot everytime. It happens soon after contact and goes away within 3-4 days, usually flakes away. What is wrong??

Hi - please see attached photos. My penis skin does look very dry in these pictures
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.

Is there severe pain in the area?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, Mildly raw. It's actually almost gone today.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
See photo - this is less than 48 hours after contact. The red on the tip is less red and the rash on the shaft is clearing up. This happens after intense masterbating or intense sex.

Thank you very much for the photos sent.

This is definitely not an infection .

This is more like a dryness induced issue related to friction of masturbation.

There is some level of eczema withing the skin that is causing this.

You should be applying Neutrogena Hydrating lotion along with Canestan cream on the area twice a day for 10 days after every contact.
