Red Itchy Penis Head with no other pain or sympton

Patient

Q: Hi Doctor, only reason why I imagine its a yeast infection is because I've been using google. Anyway I'm currently not sexually active. I have been sick with the flu, I dont know if thats relevant. Since a couple of days ago the head of my penis has been itchy. I'm uncircumcised and my hygiene with it, hasnt been as good as it could have been. I've used the search and everything, but its just itchyness and redness, it gets really itchy when I pull the foreskin back to examine. But I havent had any discharge and theres been no pain with passing urine. Is it one of them situations where I gotta act quickly and get checked or could it just be a rash and should just wait a bit?
