Customer Question
Hi, I have just got...
Hi, I have just got back from travelling a long way (2 flights, long stay in the airport, 1 boat...about 24 hours of travelling) and have noticed, whilst showering, a small red rash on my foreskin. It isn't itchy and I have no discharge. The rash is in one place. My first worry is herpes. My second thought is skin irritation. Can you help? I have a photo.

It looks more like a skin irritation related rash and very unlikely to be herpes.

Herpes is generally multiple tiny fluid filled vesicles instead of a uniform single inflamed area.

Keep the affected area dry and clean and hopefully this should go away soon.

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.
