Not herpes or a genital wart or any kind of STD

That's a patch of balanitis--a common fungal infection but not an STD

You can use over the counter clotrimazole cream twice a day for a week to get rid of it

Please let me know if you need any more information

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.
