ITCHY GENITALS

QUESTION
I have a itch sometimes around the base of my penis. There are some red spots around it. Should I be concerned?

ANSWER
Itchy, red spots on the penis can be infections related to yeast, herpes, scabies, lice, hair follicles, allergies or even syphilis. Only a doctor can make a diagnosis after a medical examination. You should get a check-up from your doctor or visit a local STD clinic.

To your health,
Dr. K
