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?
Thank you.

User avatar 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.

Best wishes.
