User avatar Hello -

This sounds like it is probably a skin irritation problem, but it could also be either of the other things you mention, which can sometimes develop as a result of a chronic skin irritation combined with less-than-ideal genital hygeine, which, for men, is more complicated or demanding than we sometimes realize. At any rate, while it sounds fairly benign, anything which goes on for an indefinite period is bound to cause some larger problem eventually, so as usual, my best advice to you is to be seen by a medical provider who can diagnose this precisely and prescribe the proper remedy.

Hope this is helpful. Please follow up with us here.
