Doctor :   A penile rash can be an indication of a sexually transmitted infection. Often it may present with spot or sores on the s kin accompanied by itching that may be intense, and pain or tenderness. Herpes simplex infection can present with similar symptoms. Although penile rash is not an emergency, failure to seek treatment can result in serious complications and permanent damage such as scarring of the penis.
