For the past month i have been having a sever itch and peeling around my penis area.. And today i noticed that the skin was getting very sore and leathery. i also get small bumps but not painful nor do they increase in size or pus. I at the moment do not have insurance to see a docter but i need to know if it is worth to just bite the money bullet and go or is this something i can fix over the counter. also knowing what it is and if it could be transferred to my partner would be appreciated.

Same problem
I have had the same kind of thing for a while now, and I'd really like it to end.
I had the same sort of spots on my face for a while, but I treated it with an anti fungal cream. Clotrimazole being the main ingredient. I haven't used it as much on the rest, but I think I need a better solution because it doesn't seem to really help.

Extremely eHealthy
hi; it probably depends on if it is simple bacteria or fungus so u can look them up, look for pictures
if fungal; there r 3 main active ingredients and Clotrimazole (as mentioned) is 1, look on the ACTIVE INGREDIENTS to see;
then u have better in some ways; like women use monistat or vagisil
and then u have Rx items like fluconozole (difucan) which comes in 50, 100, 150 mg and often a single 150 is prescribed for a yeast infection
NOW something else THAT U can do; go buy some probiotics and mix a capsule into what ever cream or anti itch, anti fungal etc as the probiotics will help stop the itch because they like to eat fungus
so do u have gf that has yeast infections, u may have got it there,
it could just be what is commonly referred as CROTCH ROT
if u r young and healthy and have no insurance then if such does not work, u have to go pay a dr etc.
good luck
