Customer Question
I am a 46...

I am a 46 year old man that have been married for 28 years to the same woman and as you can guess we don't have sex very often and I mean it's been about two years , and no I have not been unfaithful. But I have noticed that I developed a red/ pink ring around my penis just behind the head seems like dry skin and I am very concerned but also really embarrassed to ask anyone. What should I do ?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Do you notice any redness or scaling?

It's been about 2 -3 weeks and ya it does seam like it's seems like dry skin and maybe some scaling not really sure .

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I feel like I'm totally stressed out with this situation in my life also I think I may have hemorrhoids .

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.
