The penis head was redish with slight itching but not much. I have a vain in my left testicle that has swollen up aswell. When I check my penis is Dry and it seem to flake. A bit sticky when i pull back.

OK Joe--two possibilities here. It sounds like balanitis--a yeast infection of the penis and not an STD. If that's the case, Lotrimin cream applied three times a day for a week should resolve it. It also could be a case of inflammatory eczema--again not an STD--and that would respond to a cortisone cream three times a day for a week. If you aren't going to have a doctor look at this, you should start with the Lotrimin and switch to the cortisone if that doesn't work. After that, if it still is bothering you, you'd need to see a doctor for either prescription ketoconazole cream or a stronger cortisone cream
