Red itchy penis
After having sex with my fiancé and not having a bath until the evening, I got these red itchy spots on the head of my penis. We where in a monogamous relationship, or so I thought! I am not circumcised, I don't know if this is a contributing factor. What can it be?

Johnny, it’s probably nothing and I wouldn’t accuse your girlfriend of anything if I were you. It might be due to the friction associated with sex, or at worst, a fungal infection – something that isn’t due to sleeping around. If it hasn’t cleared up by the time you receive this reply, the best would be to see your doctor. Good luck.
