Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

The red itchy inflamed penis could be due to balanitis or STD, or fungal or bacterial infection. It can also be an allergic reaction to condoms, soaps, lotions etc. A confirmed diagnosis is not possible on it. Please consult a doctor regarding this, and get swab tests done. Hope this helps. Take care!
