Expert Q & A Answers About red rash penis

I’ve noticed some red marks on the end of my penis. They dry up and become scabby after a while...what could they be?

I’ve been having unprotected sex with an ex-girlfriend. Since then, I have developed red marks on the end of my penis which dry up and become scabby after a while. They have been there for a month now, and I show no sign of breaking out of the spot-scab-spot cycle. Recently, one also appeared on my scrotum. I also have experienced severe itching and an intense, prickly rash. This began on my penis (it felt sort of 'inside') but has since spread to cover various areas of my whole body...small, hardly visible dots on my hands, arms, buttocks, etc. My ex had contact with another man who apparently had the same itchiness. Any idea what I might have? Are the two things (the blistering and the rash) related? Please help!

I’ve been getting friction burns on my penis with sex...or am I allergic to something? Can you help?

My girlfriend and I just recently started having sex. Unfortunately, I’ve been getting friction burns on my penis...or maybe it’s some type of allergic reaction to her? Is there a way to get rid of these symptoms other than not having sex?

My boyfriend has red lines around his penis...is an STD the cause?

My boyfriend has red lines around his penis, just below the head. Sometimes they are dry and chapped, and sometimes they look very red and shiny. He says sometimes they’re sore, and intercourse is irritating. I think it’s from having sex with different partners. I may be wrong, but when I ask him to get his symptoms checked out, he refuses.
