Hello i am Dr Khan
I will be assisting you today.
How old are you? are you sexually active?
Which part of the penis is involved?
Your experiencing recurrent Balanitis, which is common in uncircumcised males.
Use Clotrimazole cream, it will relieve your symptoms. Always retract your foreskin and clean it with warm water. That reduces the chance of recurrence.
Yes there is no specific cause for it and it is usually episodic. Keep your foreskin and glans clean and dry. Use the Clotrimazole cream for a week. If it does not settles then you should get it examined by a Dermatologist.
You need to see a Dermatologist.
If it does not settles with the treatment and there is recurrence of it, then the next treatment option will be Circumcision.
What do you use for masturbation?
I mean what lubricants do you use for masturbation?
How do you masturbate?
Rubbing it dry can also cause such rash and itching due to friction. Dry masturbation is not advisable.
That can be one of the reason causing you recurrent rash and itching and as when you avoid masturbating, the symptoms decreases. So try avoid dry masturbating and if the symptoms recurs then you should see a Dermatologist.
It seems Balanitis from the symptoms which you described and the masturbation make the symptoms worsens. Use Clotrimazole cream for a week and keep your foreskin and glans clean and dry.
It can be an allergic reaction
I would suggest to see a Dermatologist as you are experiencing recurrent episodes.
