Red patches. Please help

Hi y'all. I have these weird red patches on the head of my penis. Theyre just red patches and there are a few weird red bumps? Or holes? The size of a needle head. Kinda like scabs. I am uncircumcised and I have had sex a few times. They have only appeared recently after the last time I had sex. My girlfriend has thrush.. But I used a condom. They're itchy sometimes. But not all the time. Can anyone help?

Re: Red patches. Please help

What you describe could be symptoms of a number of conditions; only a doctor can examine you and give a diagnosis. Here are some suggestions to consider until you decide about consulting a doctor.
  • Since the red patches appeared after sex using a condom, is it possible that you are allergic to latex? If so, there are alternatives to latex condoms.
  • If you don't retract your foreskin regularly in the shower and wash that area, you might have balanitis. If you do wash your exposed penis head regularly, you might have a reaction to the soap. In that case, you can keep your glans and foreskin clean by washing them regularly with just running water and the friction of your fingers.
  • You might have a fungal infection. An over-the-counter cream containing clotrimazole usually clears up this condition if you follow the directions that come with the product. In Australia, you can buy these creams at supermarkets and pharmacies.
