Question Two Possibly Related Problems: Itching on penis and anus

Hello,
I'm a 17 year old male with two problems. One is that there is a section of my penis that keeps itching. It doesn't seem to have any visible rashes, but the urge to itch it come suddenly. When I do scratch it, it only make me want to itch more. It gets to the point where I scratch it raw. However, as I said before, there's no visible sign of a rash before I scratch it. I'm circumsized and have never had sex. It doesn't seem to be spreading, only affecting the lower bottom right portion of the shaft.

My other problem is that the area around my anus keeps itching. That is, not the area inside the anal cavity or on the cheeks of the butt, but the skin just outside the anus. It itches in a similar way; I get a sudden urge to itch, and once I do it itches even more. Its much harder to tell in this case if there are visible symptoms, but as far as I can tell there aren't.

Neither problem appears to be serious, as they only cause true pain or discomfort when I scratch excessively. Both problems have lasted several months, though the itching on the penis started first. The problems may not even be related, but they seem similar and are both occurring at the same time. I tried a Hydrocortisone cream on both, but the problem persisted (though I guess it's possible I didn't try the cream for long enough).

The only thing I could think of to do was the Hydrocortisone cream. So... Any suggestions? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Unfortunately I can't help you but I can say that I have the exact same thing. On top of that I also have the red burning scrotum condition discussed in this thread http://www.healthboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=683165&page=20 , aswell as fordyce's spots on my penis and scrotum. I am 17 and have never had sex. I am pretty sure that if God exists, he dislikes me for some reason and wants me to never have sex.

They sounds like yeast infections. Any antifungal for womens' yeast should work on a penis or anus. For the scrotum, anything for jock itch. Yeast goes by many names, candida albicans, thrush, jock itch, it's all the same. Good luck with it.
Eating yogurt with live cultures regularly, and cutting back on sugar intake can help.
If you can't afford antifungals, putting yogurt with live cultures directly on your penis, anus, or scrotum can work. Acidophilius will eat the yeast.

Alright, I'll give that a try, thanks Tommy. Just in case, could there be any other possible cause...?

Only a doctor would know for sure. If you are going, I would suggest a dermatologist.
