What is going with my penis?

Hi, I recently been freaking out. I have been dealing with an issue where the head of my penis is very wrinkly and has some small bumps on it. I have also had really bad testicle pain and tenderness on my groin area and pain in my lower abdomen. I personally thought it was an STD, but I haven't been sexually active for about 6 months and even when I was, I wore alot of protection. I also had my blood test done way back in February and my doctor found nothing. She told me my blood was very healthy. Like I said, this has been going on for 2 weeks now and it's killing me not to know.

So, this is skin related.  Like a rash?

Yes it is
But there's also soreness with the testicles. No skin pealing, no scabs. Just soreness

Hey there.  Maybe this is something called epididymitis.  This is a bacterial infection and while it can be sexually transmitted, it isn't always.       https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/epididymitis/symptoms-causes/syc-20363853itis   I don't think that necessarily always has a rash appearance though so perhaps too, two things could be going on.  By the way, any trouble urinating?  Any discomfort with that?  

The rash is something that could be a lot of different things.  Here's a whole list https://www.healthline.com/health/mens-health/penis-irritation  What it ends up being here on the forum most of the time seems to be balanitis. That's inflammation of the skin of your penis.  Pain can be a symptom of that condition as well as the skin changes you describe.  https://www.health.harvard.edu/a_to_z/balanitis-a-to-z  That's an overview of it.  Prevention includes proper hygiene and cleaning of the area, treatment is often an antifungal cream.  You may want to try the cream and if that doesn't clear it up, you'll have to get this checked out by your doctor.  I know we are all avoiding the doctor so try the cream and hopefully that clears it up for you.

I see, ya I do have pain on my left testicle. I don't have any pain while urinating. I'll definitely give the cream a try. They aren't big sores, but they are really tiny sores. The head is also really wrinkly and they can only be seen if I look really closely.
They have not changed at all. It's been almost 2 weeks and they haven't scabbed, or anything. Just a small pain which I would rate a 2, but it is there.

Well I figured out what I have. I recently went to the doctor and it turns out I have a hernia. As for the infection on my penis, it turns out that it's just a normal rash due to lack of hygiene. Thank you guys for helping out!
