    Red, Irritated Penis
    An_267754 posted:

    I've never posted anything before, but I have a question about my penis. For a while now (at least a year), the head of my penis (1 cm from bottom of head to the tip) has been very red. Not sure what it it, as it doesn't itch and there are no white spots or abrasions or discharge. However, it is sometimes very annoying as if it comes in contact with boxers it can't be VERY irritated, is always worse when I'm sweating but still irriitated without sweating, and sometimes burns a little bit. I've tried keeping it cool and clean and have't masturbated at all for the past couple weeks, but no real improvements. I also tried Man 1 Oil, or whatver it's called, which didn't really help much either. I also saw a university doctor a few months ago, who said it's probably nothing, but it can be VERY irritating and hasn't got better.

    Any ideas? Does this site allow me to post a picture of it on here?
