Customer Question
Redness on penile shaft...

Redness on penile shaft. itchyness

Doctor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I thought i had masterbated to roughly and caused the problem. The redness is itchy to the touch. checked for bumps, but don't see anything that looks specifically like bumps, other than hair folicles. left side of penis head is a little red and touchy. I'm right handed, and thus thought it was because i was rough in masterbating

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
