Post Penis is itchy/burning peeling and tearing

Can someone please help I'm 21, For the last week under my foreskin it has become very itchy. With this also brings alot of skin that is flaking off. If I scratch/rub too much the skin breaks off leaving little cuts or cracks. When I get in the shower to wash it the dead skin peels off no problem, but when I go to get out and dry it, its very sensitive red and sore. When I pull back my foreskin for a while, the foreskin and the head of the penis dries out, and covers completely in dead white skin that flakes off. If i leave the skin covering the head, it gets all manky and yucky with moist dead skin that rubs off.

I have searched this site going back to 2001 to see if any one else has had this problem, but I can't seem to find it.

Does anyone know what this could be? If so how to remedy this? (I haven't changed soaps, diet nor had sex in a while. I still continue to masturbate daily)

Any ideas would be good :-)

Reevesy, it sounds like you may have a fungal infection. This is not terribly uncommon in uncircumcised men. Please get it checked out by a doctor who can prescribe an appropriate treatment after getting a diagnosis.

Do you have any other medical conditions?

Mike is right. You have a fungal infection. Fungus thrives in a moist friendly environment. Uncut men are usually spared this. Get overthecounter lotromin and apply twice daily. May take a month. I have been down that road and it is bothersome

Thanx guys I will do just that. It makes it alot less embarresing when you say it's fairly common, and that people have had this before.

Cool

Hey Reevsey, I had what sounds like a similar problem back about 10 years ago, when I was a teenager. I'm circumcised, so it wasn't on my foreskin, but on the shaft of my dick. With me, it seemed to be a reaction to something I was using to masturbate with. (I think I was using conditioner to jerk off with.) Once I stopped, it went away. Have you maybe been masturbating with something different that your foreskin could be reacting to??

Good luck, and let us know how it all turns out!
