Rashes on genital area

I usually do not have this problem except for rainy days. I have very mild rashes currently near genital area which may phase out in a day or two as I am not having major itching or burning etc. My major concern is that at the base of the penis there are a few little white spots. They look like dried pimples (dry white skin after that). This might be due to rough sexual intercourse a night before. I shaved before that. Should I be concerned.? What should I do to prevent this.

Hi, Rashes in the genital area are usually caused by irritation of the skin from many sources, such as clothes rubbing against the skin. Rashes that occur without other symptoms are usually minor.it may also due to Penile psoriasis which causes pale red, scaling patches and does not itch or burn. Sores, blisters, or ulcers, especially in the groin or genital area, may be the first symptom of several sexually transmitted diseases (STIs). If you have a rash or growths in the groin or genital area, do not have sexual contact or activity until you have been evaluated by your physcian. This will reduce the risk of spreading a possible infection to your partner. Your sex partner may also need to be evaluated and treated.consult general physician for care.
