Hello. I'm Dr Chip
Got your picture

How long have you had that?

Any itching?

And have you tried anything to treat that?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
About 4 weeks, itched to start for few days, not itched since just this rash, haven't used any meds just cleaning

It's a mild case of balanitis--a common fungal infection and not and STD and nothing to do with hygiene

You can clear that up with an over the counter topical antifungal cream like clotrimazole applied twice a day for two weeks

Please let me know if you need any more information
