hi, I'm 19 years old and the last few years I have been getting a red swollen and itchy foreskin after being in a hot tub. It usually lasts a few days, I am not sexually active and have no STD's.

Mohiba K Tareen, MD responded:
Irritation of the foreskin is quite common. I would suggest rinsing with cool water after the hot tub and applying vaseline or aquaphor. If this is not helping the symptoms, you can occasionally apply a 1% hydrocortisone cream. If this is still not alleviating the symptoms, I would suggest you consult a urologist.

I hope that helps
