Question: Very itchy red rash on penis
|pacemaker - Sun Jul 08, 2007 9:45 pm|
Age 44 and male. After sex with partner of three years (female), I now have a very itchy red rash on the tip of my penis and surrounding areas. My partner now has the same symptons. Any ideas please of what to do?

I would be suspicious of a fungal (yeast) infection. Most commonly, women are symptomatic and men are often not; however, men can develop symptoms as you are describing.
If STD's are of any possibility I would recommend you both be screened just to be sure. These infections can have significant consequences if not treated.
