Can't give a photo

Then can you more fully describe it for me?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
It's a small area that gets dry when I shower
I have used hand cream on the area
What should I use??
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
It's on the shaft of my penis

Sounds like a patch of dishydrotic eczema

For that I'd suggest over the counter 1% hydrocortisone cream twice a day followed half an hour after each application with Eucerin lotion

That should clear it up in a week's time

Please let me know if you need any more information

It's nothing to worry about??
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I think it's from sex with my girlfriend

No, not at all--not any kind of STD or any kind of infection

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
