I have a genital rash

Default profile image
I have a rash that began about 12 months ago under the head of my penis. It started a a small spot that looked like scratch and it scabbed over. It went away for a few months after substaining from sex. It returned looking as it started then spread slightly above the head of the penis. As long as i substain from sex it will scab over and peel away and it red a raw. Now i have swelling where skin and scab have peeled and red bomps continue to spread. I also have small red bumps on the upper thigh. Its sore and painful to have sex.

This sounds like balanitis, or eczema of the penis. It does not sound like fungus or infection of any sort. Friction irritates it. Hydrocortisone (1%-otc) helps. Try avoiding the former and using the latter. A visit to the dermatologist for confirmation also seems in order
