i tan a lot in the tanning salon and i have what looks like dry and flaky skin on the penis is this common or is this a symptom of a herpes outbreak? And im also confused on something if u have herpes are recurrent outbreaks going to be in the same area or will they be in different areas? Im getting different answers and now im nervous because i get small little cuts in the same area every now and then but i always thought it was from friction!

I noticed a dry patch on my penis. It small, circular and is dry. Does it sound like herpes type 2? I did some research, and I don't think that's a symptom.
(Will you know what it is when it happens) I now have some white-flaky 'dry skin' where the rash was. Is this a possible herpes out break? Can herpes look like this? That is, no obvious blisters but dry flacky skin. Also, what are the odds of contracting herpes after a one time protected encounter with no visable sores?
It is quite pale white and moist and then dry. The skin breaks into lacerations, almost as if it looks like herpes, but is not. I have attached a picture of the penis problem.
hello i have a one round dry shiny skin on the penis glans that's painless and not itchy its 9 day since its first appear......i'm so worry about having a herpes virus. 2 month ago i have sex with my girlfriend, we started without condom but after a few minute i wear the condom thru out the sex...
Hello, Three possibilities are there for this dry skin spot on buttocks. These include dry skin, eczema and psoriasis (less likely). You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin. You can take some OTC oral antihistamine medications like Benadryl or Claritin and see if it helps. For mild-moderate symptoms a weak steroid may be use. But it is available under prescription and should be taken only after consulting a dermatologist.
I also forgot to mention that my right nipple was also very dry, itchy, and also cracked like dry skin.
I was sexual active with a girl in Oct 2008. I developed 2 very small areas of dry skin on my penis and one on my scrotum. One eventually developed a scab and they other 2 just healed. There was a general tingling/itching senasation on the sides of the shaft of penis and the botton on both sides of my scrotum. Also my anus itched intensely. I went to a local health clinic and was tested for chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, HIV, Hep B/C and all came back negative.
I experienced what appeared to be extremely dry cracked skin on legs and buttocks which after a couple months presented with blisters. Also had one on foot. Doctor took a culture for HSV2, which came back negative. I had never had an initial outbreak, so could that have been one for hsv2? It had been over a year since last sexual contact.
hello, i have recently gotten dry skin that peels and blood blisters on the tip of my penis, does not hurt or itch, i first noticed after sex with my ex.
I do have sensative skin in general, I have allergies to some shampoos and my skin can get really dry in winter. I thought is was an infection but when i went to the walk in doctor he only tested for STD's and nothing else, he thought it was herpes. I never have had any bumms or bubbles. Just what i stated above.
I don't feel any lumps. It's just extremely dry, itchy at times, then it's dry again and I feel my skin cracking. Please reply on what you might think this could be. I'm going to go to plan parenthood in 3 days but i'm debating if I should go see a dermatologist instead. What's your advice?
I have had a patch of dry skin on the shaft of my penis off and on for a couple months now. The area is red and smooth. Then it will dry up or peel. No bumps, discharge, pain, itching or anything else. Doesn't create any kind of discomfort. Not sure what it is. Also, the underside of the tip of my penis, where that little patch of skin is on a circumsized penis is, has developed what looks to be a bubble. Does not go away, been there since I returned back from an overseas mission.
A week or so ago, I discovered two reddish, dry patches of skin on my penis. One on the front, the other on the back. Each are about 1cm in diameter. These patches are covered in some dry, flaky skin and are reddish in color, and are more noticeable when flaccid. My first thought was that these were caused by excessive and agressive masturbation, since I hadn't been using any lubrication. Will these skin patches clear up? Will there be permanent marks?
Hi, I have always had very dry sensitive skin but over the past year I have had a couple of episdoes where my legs particularly my thighs get extremely irritated. They itch and burn and I get that start out pink in color then turn dark red. These bumps are not clusted and do not seem to have heads or puss but are sometimes raised. There are also some white bumps. None of these bumps are very large. I had a blood test done for herpes that came back negative.
Hi, I'm hoping a Dr. can help me out. I've had some dry / red skin on the outside foreskin of my penis for a few months now, and it doesn't seem to be going away. At first I thought it was just dry and needed vaseline or other ointment to moisturize it, but that didn't seem to help. I went to the Dr. last week and was given some anti-fungal cream. It's helped bring the redness and rash down, but the skin still seems to be flaky, red and slightly bumpy.
I didn't think to ask about spermicides and N-9; I'm glad Sarah_C (and your ObG) thought of it. Let us know if the problem clears up after a couple of weeks without N-9 exposure.
I checked out all the symptoms for the suggestions youve made above, for the STD tests. But I havent had ANY discharge throughout my dry skin patches. Only VERY dry skin which is Very itchy at the same time. But no odoured or odourless discharge thankfully. Most of the symptoms given for the above suggestions dont seem familiar. I have admittedly been on an erratic diet since this condition appeared, and dont eat regularly or well and have lost significant amounts of weight.
The skin looked shiny and red, and after a few days it became hard and dry with lots of dry hard skin on top. Then the extra skin fell off after 2 days (and a lot of moisturizer), and now it looks normal again, except for a tiny cut like thing, that might have been a crack from the dry skin. The cut doesn't hurt. I have had some unprotected oral prior to the event, and one unprotected blowjob when the skin looked shiny and red. I have a couple of questions: 1) Is this herpes?
About a week later I noticed that my penis became extremely dry, with small patches of dry cracked skin occurring in a couple of spots on my foreskin. My penis would also become very red in color after masturbating and the head of my penis would become extremely dry as well. After 6 weeks of this occurring the dryness has decreased but is still mildly present. I have been very concerned as I have read that genital herpes can present itself as patches of dry cracked skin.
For a few months now I have had extremely dry skin right below the head of my penis, it is so extremely dry that it cracks the skin, these cracks are not there all the time but the redness does not go away, the skin almost feels tight.
Then today my neck was ichy and when I scratched it skin flakes came off. I have very dry/ sensitive skin so I didn't think much of it. When I got home I found a large rash on my neck and spots near my mouth. There are no bumps and its not ichy and it does not burn. Its just red. My skin is extremely dry so its been pealing like crazy. I was wondering is this a symptom of herpes? I am very concerned.
Sounds more like it could be a yeast or fungal infection it could also be something you are allergic to although trying to find what it is can be very difficult,try to think if you have used anything different such as soaps shower gels or even the products you use to wash your clothes that you hadn't used before this happened,other than that I think you need to let your Doctor to take a look and perhaps he could refer you to a Dermatologist.
You sure it's not just dry skin? Or did you recently have a yeast infection and itch yourself a lot? Try some vaseline. Also paps don't check for stds. They check for abnormalities in the vagina such as cancer.
