I don't see a rash on your penis.

there is a bit of redness on the crown on the head of the penis

but that can be from the photo technique or dry skin

If i leave it without any cream the skin flakes
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

you are using drying soap like body wash on antibacterial soap ?

you should use a moisturizing soap daily like Dove moisturizing soap to wash.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yeah i use antibacterial soap . But its not some skin issues like dermatatis or eczema .what is my condition .
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

it is dry skin dermatitis

antibacterial soap is very drying.

you most likely don't need it

you can use a small amount of moisturizer on the skin there after you shower

or use a more moisturizing soap like Dove

the skin there is sensitive to drying and dry skin there.

let me know if you have other questions.
