head of penis itchy

hey people
first of all im uncircumcised and have a problem. The head of my penis is very itchy and when I retract the foreskin the head is kinda red, like a rash and very itchy. Because the head is too sensitive for me to touch i have to resort to rubbing/scratching through the foreskin, this is another reason that i weant to have a circumcision can anyone help me with what could be the problem?
cheers jack

Re: head of penis itchy

it sounds like you have a simple yeast infection. any over the counter yeast infection medicine for women, like monistat, should work just fine.
relax about having a foreskin. circumcised men sometimes get yeast infections as well. the foreskin is not the cause, and circumcision is not the answer.

Re: head of penis itchy

An ex of mine had a similiar problem and it was a yeast infection. I talked to my gyno about it and she gave me diflucan to give him. Diflucan is a pill you can take by mouth and works well. And if you've never had a yeastie then you should be diagnosed by a Dr because it could be something entirely different

Re: head of penis itchy

so it won't go away by itself ay?
by the way i forgot to tell you one other symptom and that is swelling the penis head especially or the foreskin not sure which is swollen so much to the point where i can retract the foreskin back whereas bewfore i could also there is a constant discharge coming out i start rubbing or scratching and then pull back my foreskin and there is a yellowish whitish fluid under the foreskin not sure if its pus or sperm but it makes it harder to pull back the foreskin and it's pretty sticky
cheers jack
