In the last couple of days I've noticed that my foreskin when retracted is red and is itchy. I don't have any other problems i.e. difficulty unrinating or burning or discharge or anything.
I'm assuming that this means i've got an minor infection. Is there some at home treatment to get rid of this? Or do I need to see a doctor for some sort of medicine. Or will it go away with proper hygeine?
More than likely, it is a yeast infection, thrush, whatever you want to call it.
There are several ways you can approach it. One is anything over the counter for women, like monistat. Another is to retract, and leave it retracted, for a few hours.
This would mean that you are not doing anything else. Either that, or you can pull the foreskin back, put your glans through the underwear hole, and suffer with the unpleasant rubbing sensation.
