    The last two times I had unprotected sex with my gal,I experienced a terrible itching sensation near the tip of my penis.This happened about 1 hour after finshing the act and the tip continued to be terribly dry,and itchy for the following week.

    A few days ago, I could even peel off some dry skin from the foreskin area.We are both healthy and are monogamous and have been together for about 1 year.This has only happened during our last two or three sexual encounters.The previos times,no problems at all.She had a yeast infection issue a few months ago and got it cleared up at the gynecologists.

    Could it be some kind of male yeast infection?? Any of you guys ever had anything like this?No other symptoms present only the flaky,itchy penis tip.

    If the skin is dry you could use some babyoil to soften the skin.

    Anything which works for women will work for you as well.
    Monistat, vagisil, those kinds of creams. In Europe, it's canesten. You both have to do it at the same time, or you will be passing it back and forth.

    If she had a yeast infection you should be treated for it at the same time otherwise she just passes it on to you, you pass it back to her and so on.

    I agree with the yeast infection comments. Both must participate to keep the cycle going, or as others have indicated, both must use the cure to eliminate the cycle.
