It started off with my forskin being irritated and it itched once in a while but it seems like now my skin is peeling on certain parts of the head and for skin

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the skin issue? Have you noticed any major changes in your overall skin or nails recently?

Maybe about 2 days it happened after I had sex and slept with the condom on for about a couple of hours

Yes it sounds like an allergic reaction to the latex in condom . Have you tried anything for this ? Any burning or discharge? I would recommend topical low strength OTC hydrocortisone and oral benadryl . It should improve with this .

Let me knowif you have any more queries

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.
