Are you circumcised? Are you diabetic? Is the rash on the head of he penis?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Neither of the above. It is on my head off the penis
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 1 year ago.
Ok. This rash is most likely something called balanoposthitis and can be due to a fungal skin infection. You need to see your doctor for an exam to see if they need to prescribe an anti fungal and steroid cream called betamethasone with Clotrimazole. Hope this helps.

Yes, this is normal especially if it is not treated. This will not go away until you get the steroid and antifungal cream to make the fungus go away. Hope this helps and please let me know if you have further questions. If you don't, please don't forget to leave me a rating. Thanks.
