Genital area outbreak

Can someone please help me figure out what's going on around my penis? It's mostly itchy, pain comes and goes like fire and pinching. Hospital said it's most like a skin infection and gave me antibiotics but the visit was super rushed and was more of a guess than an answer. They gave me Antibiotics ( Teva-cephalexin 500mg ) to take for 5 days and I'm on day 3 with the infection getting worse in my opinion.

Re: Genital area outbreak

There are a number of common conditions that can cause itching of the genital skin such as eczema, psoriasis, fungal infection. If the condition is persistent despite treatment from the hospital I would advise you see your gp specifically for a dermatology review so the skin can be properly assessed
