Doctor - I noticed yesterday that on the right side of the tip of my penis there is a patch of skin that is peeling. It is about half the size of a dime. The skin is 'flaky' but not irritated (painful, itchy, etc). I don't think I've ever seen this before in this area. I'm wondering if it could be an STD symptom. I don't think it is anything but I thought I would give your webservice a try. Thanks in advance for your help.
There is no STD that typically causes a flaky rash. A localized yeast infection or any f the innumerable causes of dermatitis are more likely. Herpes and syphilis can be highly variatble in the lesions they cause, and atypical symptoms are fairly common with both. Still, any STD is very unlikely with such a description. Of course I cannot assess your behavioral risks for STD, which could influence my advice. If the problem persists, see a health care provider. But in the meantime, STDs probably are not a serious concern.
