I think I may have got sun burn on my penis. I have been

Resolved Question:

I think I may have got sun burn on my penis. I have been sunbathing nude in south of France and I didn't put sunscreen on it. it is red and sore. But it is also red and sore around the penis and underneath where it meets the scrotum. Could it be jock itch? I have had that before. Or a combination of them both. I wasn't in the sun that much and didn't get burnt anywhere else.

Yes. It could be jock itch.

Where, exactly, is the redness and sore spots on your penis? The shaft? The head? In a pattern that might be consistent with sun exposure etc?

Got 'em.

That looks more like sunburn then jock itch.

You know, your penis does not require as much time int the sun to get fried as your arms do.....

Put over the counter sunburn cream on it, keep your penis out of the sun for awhile and things should be fine. It will, like many sunburns, peel later....

You might not want to engage in sexual activity until things are back to normal.

Does this make sense to you?
