Every now and then i notice that there is some dry skin around the head of my penis. when i put lotion on it or moisturize it, it goes away, but returns a few days later.I'm worried about what this is and want to see a doctor about it. the only prob is i've never been to a doctor about this sort of thing and am not sure where to go. should i just see a dermatologist or is there some other medical professional i should go to?

could also be that if your washing it with soap then its makeing the skin too dry!!! if you are washing your penis with a bar soap or another harsh body soap (such as axe gel) then stop wusing it and switch to washing your penis with conditioner!

hope this helps!
