Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
Welcome to Justanswer website.
Myself Dr Josh and I’m happy to help with your question today. Please provide me the following information so that I can address your concern
Since how long you have this irritated penis?
Is there any redness/ discharge or bumps or itching?
Had you recently had a sex?
Do you masturbate frequently?
Thank you for the additional info.
The symptoms you have described of penis chaffing & irritation since last 2 weeks can be most likely because of irritation caused by masturbation.Repeated rubbing/friction of the skin can irritate it resulting in roughness,chaffing,redness.
Another less likely possibility is of fungal infection.
Try keeping the area clean and dry and keep masturbation to a minimum(try to avoid) to allow the area to heal.Apply ointment containing neomycin + betamethasone. It is available as OTC (over the counter)without prescription & will help you greatly.
Usually & most likely your symptoms will resolve in next couple of days.
