Hi I recently noticed that I have dry or flakey skin on my foreskin and it's kind of peeling and was wondering if this is some thing I should worry about or not and should I see a doctor about it? Any answers much appreciated

hey fred dry flacky skin can be caused by a number of reasons..... does it itch or burn? are you sexually active? and do you wash underneath your foreskin daily or everyother day? also how old are you.

 

these all play into possible causes for flaky skin.

 

thanks

hey fred..... it sounds like it could be a yeast infection. look up some images of male yeast infections and let me know if it resembles any of thoes pictures. its hard to say what it could be withouthseeing anything. and even with pictures its hard to make an accurate diagnosis. you can try getting antifungal cream at any local pharmacy and try applying that according to the directions on the box ro tube.

 

let me know how things go and what you thing,

thanks
