A few years I developed a red rash around the base of my penis. It spread in localised patches mainly on the base but some even on the head. It went away on its on but has re appeared a few times and on this occasion has stuck with me for about 6 months. It sometimes gets a bit scaley and also can get itchy at night. If I scratch it it weeps. In this recent outbreak I have also had an itchy sphinkter and when I had a look in the mirror it was red around it as well. It mainly occurs in areas of the body that are warm. Could it be jock itch, thrush, tinea?
