today i noticed my penis was itching so i went to the bathroom and the inside part of the foreskin the part that touches the glands is red and raw and itchy and it looks like it has little bumps and dents in it. this is very painful. Also i know it can't be a STd because i have never had any type of sexual relation and or intercourse. Is this a allergic reaction or what? i need to know what i amdealing with! It is itching like crazy! And it hurts!

My best guesses would be either an allergic reaction, a yeast infection -- AKA "jock itch" -- or public lice -- one can contract those without sexual contact.

Have you switched laundry detergents lately? Soap?

So, if a warm bath or oatmeal bath doesn't help matters at least some within a day -- as well as wearing loose, breatheable clothing -- I'd suggest you see your doctor.

thank you for the information as it is really annoying and it could be pubic lice or more likely a allergic reaction and thank you for your time and attention Miz Scarlet

also may it help you identify the problem if i say that i noticed some discolration an the glands a few weeks back and it gradually spread out and the discoloration was red. And i tried a warm bath and it didn't help. And i can't get a oatmeal bath as that would require me buying some oatmeal bath stuff in town and my parents would ak why i want it and then i would say "well i have a itchy penis and it is raw and red" and then it would get awkward.
