I have had a chafe around the lower left part of skin under the head of my penis. I'm circumcised, and I'm a virgin. I use lotion too. Now the chafing has spread to sporadic places around the penis (i.e. ALL OVER!!!) and the sores sting when lotion is applied, so that makes for a cranky me. What I'm asking is what should I do, All I can think of is to go cold turkey for about a week, but that may not be long enough. And if it's not, I don't think I will be able to stand any longer!!! Is there some kind of "Penis Cream" to apply? And can I get it in a box clearly labeled "Not penis cream"? Thanks,

Know what? See your doctor.

Why? Because you want to make sure that what you aren't dealing with isn't a yeast infection -- which can produce the same symptoms, and will only get worse without treatment.

So, get in there before you try anything else and make sure it is just chafing, eh? And if it isn't a yeast infection, your doctor can help you find something to take care of it as well.

Men and women both can get yeast infections.

In men, they're colloquially called "jock itch" sometimes. But spreading peeling or chafing is a common symptom of yeast infections.

And yes, you're allowed to be here. We have users of all genders at Scarleteen.
