Thanks for info ...

In the absence of unprotected sex , such red rash over Penis highly likely the Genital Dermatitis .

This responds well to topical steroids , I will suggest you to immediately start Gydrocortisone cream twice a day at morning and bed time over rash area , this will heal up within week .

Meanwhile avoid tight under garments and wash area regularly with Antispetics .

Regards ***** ***** luck .
