Peeling/redness/confusion with my penis

Recently I noticed some light red blotching on my penis head, at first i put it down to irritation or something, I had been masturbating alot without lubrication so i just assumed it was that, but then as I tried to wash it some white clumpy skin (i assume) came away from my skin. I am a 19 yo, haven't had sex in about 6 months so i know its unlikely to an STD, i have been very ill lately and been on penicillin for a sinus infection.

After promptly googling my symptoms im relatively certain its a yeast infection, however its unlikely because Its normally transmitted sexually..

Does anyone have an ideal whats up/how I can solve this?

Hello,
This rash can be due to dermatitis skin. You should use mild soaps and apply some calamine lotion on the rash. If it itches then you can take some antihistaminic like Benadryl or Claritin. If the rash spreads then get it evaluated from a dermatologist.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
