Question Possible problem?

I've had a lingering problem for several months. What my problem has been recently is, on my penis, under what is left of my uncircumsized skin, the skin is a deep pink, it looks like the color of raw beef actually. Also, this area will radomly itch at anytime, for no apparent reason. I've tried all anti-itch creams or anti-biotic ointments I can find to little or no result/relief. I'm hoping this isn't serious, and it something like jock itch.

Re: Possible problem?

What do you mean by "what is left of my uncircumsized skin"? Have you had a partial circumcision or is your foreskin intact? This sounds like a fungal infection to me but you should let a doctor have a look at it to be sure.

Re: Possible problem?

I had a circumcision back when I was an infant, and there is just a little ring of my foreskin left around part of my penis.

Re: Possible problem?

This is a puzzle. Is your circumcision "loose" - meaning are there folds of skin on the shaft when you're flaccid? If so, then I'd say you may have some kind of fungal infection that has imbedded itself in the folds. That is usually the cause of itching and redness on a penis but this is very unusual in a circumcised guy. You should try something like an over the counter treatment for thrush - one that may be advertised for ladies. The same fungus is responsilbe for the problem in men and women so you need not feel embarrassed over this. If that does not work, get to the doctor. Hope this helps.
