Reoccuring Rash

Patient

Q: - Male, 20's
- In otherwise good health

Recently developed a red splotchy rash on scrotum and on the base of the penis shaft. Did not seem to be harmful primarily, it was painless, with no Itch. The rash appeared to be a bright red, with a scaly surface. It seemed to be going away when I started upping my multi vitimins and taking warm baths. Until Last night, I woke up with an unbareable itch in the morning however it seemed to dissopate within an hour. I have experienced similar symptoms a couple other times, the problem always seemed to correct itself after a few weeks. Could it be a form of psoriasis? Also, is there any over the counter medications thatdon't requir a perscription that I can use to correct this problem. Finally.. In the last 2 months I have also developped what appears to be splotches on my tongue, It's painless has caused no discomfort and apearsa identical to geographical tongue picutres. some days it is nticable, othes it's not, i'm a smoker. I asked a doctor about it and he suggested multi vitimins... thank you.
