Hi guys, this is my first time using a forum, and i would like to get some advince on what might this problem be.
First of all, i am a 22 years old and was sexually active. I had unprotected sex some times during august but nothing really happened until about a month ago.

About a month ago, the head of my penis started to get itchy. It's toward the foreskin area and is toward the top part. At first i honestly didn't think it's anything since it will only usually itch when i have my erections. This usually happens before i sleep and in the early morning. However, the strange thing is that it never itches during the time when i am widely awake. Also, there're some nights i go by without feeling itchy at all. Now, my question is, what exactly is going on with me? Why does my penis itch like that?
P.S. I do not seem to see the head of my penis turning red or anything nor do i have any bumps/blister on it.

Thx guys!

If the girl/partner has thrush then you'll most likely get it as well. It usually happens especially if you're kept in warm conditions because thrush like warm conditions.Don't be worried! Get a canestan/ thrush cream and treat it. Get some yogurt too. If it doesn't go away after a few days then go see a doctor!With herpes, it's more painful and has blisters! However, it's best to get doctor's advice. Tha!I know this website does not have any info on sexually transmitted disease yet. But you can sign up now and it'll come up with free articles of STDs.
