Back in December I got a rash/irritation on my foreskin which made it very tight to pull back and very painful when touching my boxers. After the rash/irritation went away I didn't get another rash until just last month which didn't last nearly as long. Then again a coupe of days ago I had another incident and decided to get in the shower and the rash/pain went away in only a couple of hours. Is this something that I will deal with forever or is there a solution to my problem. I can't imagine this could be an STD since I have a monogomous relationship with my wife could it? I would appreciate any opinions on the matter.
What you call "a rash" may be a skin infection, allergy or even herpes. I think that you should get a urologist or dermatologist to see this when it is acute. From the standpoint of sexual/penile hygiene, you should be pulling your foreskin back daily and washing your penis with soap and water daily. You should rinse the area well before pulling the foreskin back down over the head.
