Question: Excema, dry skin or something else ?


 Wantittogoaway - Thu Feb 23, 2006 1:08 pm

Hello, I am male that is currently 20 years old. I am extremely active, I go to the gym and play hockey approximately 4-5 times per week and play soccer the other two. Within the past week or so I have developed something that resembles dry skin on my scrotum and penis. I have a line approximately 1cm long directly underneath my penis head and the same thing just above it on the crest of the head, it does not really itch, the skin is just flaking off. On my scrotum I have a circular patch on the bottom that is red, shinny and has flaked once already, it is not particularly itchy but a bit sensitive after the skin flaked off. I had the full run of STD testing about 2 and half months ago and I have HPV 1, but have never had a cold sore in my life. I have only slept with 1 person since the test and she is clean. What could this be ?
