I have something strange going on. Right below my underwear line and around the base of the shaft of my penis I have what appears to be shiny kind of hard skin that is VERY itchy. I asked my partner to look at it and they say it just looks like I've been scratching it is all. I don't believe so. I understand a little itchiness now and then but what throws me is the fact that the skin seems to have changed, is shiny, and seems to have a hard feeling to it. What could this be? It doesn't get red. It just itches wherever it seems to be. My doctor gave me prednisone and said it looks like poison ivy or something. I think he's lost it...I haven't been rubbing in the bushes.
