White rash penis, smell when wash

Edited , 4 users are following.

hi i'm looking for some advice i noticed a white patch on my penis a few weeks back but wasn't sore or anything. i noticed that part of it started going to the normal colour so thought would be just a blemish but another part has turned red now and its been quite sore especially when shower(just the part that turned red) and masterbation

i called GUM and due to covid had to send photos online the doctor advised it looked like a temporary skin condition and monitor over the next few weeks washing with e45 lotion

the skin or red part doesnt feel red just the red part is sore to touchimageimageimage

i was washing in shower today and there was a strong odour coming from there too. does anyone know what this could be.

    Dear Me,

    It looks like you've developed balanitis- the red patches and now the white spot/s. Unfortunately the photos are not in focus and I'm not clear how these lesions have evolved. Are you saying that the white spots develop into red spots; and that the red spots are tender?

    Is there fluid (pus?) beneath the white spots? If this condition is recurrent then you may be experiencing genital herpes and the white spots are actually pustules which then ulcerate, leaving reddened ulcerated areas.

    Ideally, you should get tested for STDs including a swab taken for herpes DNA as well as blood tests for HIV and syphilis. If you live in the UK, you can order some of these tests online (Google NHS STD tests).
