just 10 days, looks like a red rash. only on one side about 1to 2 sq inches. from head down to half way down penis, slightly itchy

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 3 years ago.
Of course you need a doctor to look at this.

Most typically it would be a fungal infection.

Chlortrimazole would take care of it if this is the case.

But it could also be
dermatitis [eczema]
Other skin disease
other type of infection.
