    Penis shaft has been red and itchy for over a month

    I am 17 years old.

    For over a month, my penis has been itching very badly. Some days it is worse than others. I am circumcised.

    Also, I have never had sex before. Nor done anything sexual at all with anyone.

    On top of there being a rash on my shaft, part of my testicles are also inflamed and itchy.

    I expected this to go away, but it has been so long, that I am starting to get concerned. I have considered applying coconut oil, but am not sure whether I should.

    Hi Sounds like you have a simple yeast infection of the skin, first thing is to shave off your pubic hair, yes I know its just grown, reason YI is a fungus and it loves a warm damp place to hid , and pubic hair is just the place so no hair, no hiding place, so you get shaving but only shave downwards, this way you get no ingrowing hairs, then give it a nice sea salt warm water wash and all around the area, do that a couple of times a day with the SS wash.

    The coconut oil its a good choice as this helps to fight YI's just put this around the area that's needs it after you have had the SS wash and its dry. OK

    See how that goes, if its not clearing just PM me, just click on my name above. OK

    Do a search under "Jock Itch". Not unusual during hot, humid months.

    Good over the counter medications for this.

    So sorry you're struggling with this! I'd recommend going to a doctor and once he checks everything out, I'd purchase Man1 Man Oil.
