Penile dryness

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
At first, it was a bit red, so I got concerned that I had syphilis but now the skin is completely dry and it also itches. With that my body is also itching most of the time, so I don't know what it is

The dryness of the skin is not syphillis, which usually presents as a painless red and raised lesion at first that then turns into an ulceration. It looks like just localized irritation of the skin at the head of the penis which should continue to resolved.

However, if you had pain or discharge from the penis or other red, raised lesions, I would recommend making an appointment with your doctor for further evaluation.
