Patient : I have a question in regards to a red inflammation on my penis. Its not itchy, pus filled, or secreting anything. Its just red with some rough patches of skin, almost scabby, and the affected area is shiny, more so than the regular skin. the only time it ever bothers me is after sex or masturbation in which the skin will tear open and burn when touched, similar touching a fresh wound on your elbow. it covers a about 40-45% of my penis. mostly on the underside of the head and shaft. small patches on the sides and the top. I went and got tested for STD's, and they said no news is good news and i haven't heard anything from them. It hasn't spread anywhere else, just my penis. and my fiancee hasnt shown any signs of getting it, or told me of any changes she has had in regards to it. I have had only her as a sexual partner for the last year. All i really want to know is what it is so i can figure out how to fix it. Its more of a moral issue for me, and i would like to get it resloved. Anything you can tell me about it would be greatly appreciated.
