red rash on penis glans and rim

Edited , 5 users are following.

It's been a while now be every time I either materbate or have sexual intercourse it becomes very red, sometimes it will throb but not a lot. I was told from one person that it was mild balantis and to use 1% Hydrocortisone and that didn't work.

    After a little of it being red it goes back to almost normal, you can still see it somewhat but just not as bad

    Ya man, I wouldn't put so much though into it. Don't research it cause that's just gonna stress you out, trust me. Do you think that it might be an std?

    I would. After an intercourse, or masturbating, my penis because red as well in certain parts, but it goes away in time. Do you feel pain?

    Ya I don't think you have nothing to worry about. You can also visit a urologist.

    It looks like balanitis to me too, but like I said on the other thread, I'd try Canesten or Daktarin before hydrocortisone.  If you do use hydrocortisone, don't go above 1% cream, and don't use it more than once a day for 14 days except on a doctor's advice.

    Did you ever figure out what it was or the proper treatment? I've been going through the same thing for the past month and a half. It gets worse when I have sexual intercourse or masturbate but I've used a mix of hydro-cortisone cream, anti-fungal and sometimes neosporin...but nothing has worked.
