Dr I have some irritation/redness in the middle of my penis head. I saw it originally on 7/18. Pictures are from then and yesterday. Is this an std such as herpes?

HI

No, not herpes or any STD or any infection of any kind

Looks like a little inflammatory eczema but nothing at all serious

What's this caused by? Is it just cause my skin is dry? It doesn't hurt or anything
Expert:  Dr Chip (M.D.) replied 2 months ago.

No particular cause for it

Sometimes some friction can set it off

I have molluscum in my groin, not on my penis. Would this be an immune response from my body, based off that?
