Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Penis that feels itchy, often peels and falls out most often indicates a fungal infection, for example tinea cruris. Not only the penis, this condition often afflicts the scrotum (testicles), anus, and groin area. Generally, in addition to itching and peeling, the skin will find a reddish skin rash in the form of a circle resembling paler islands in the middle. Itching is often worse when your body sweats a lot, for example after an activity or exercise. Several other conditions that increase a person's risk of experiencing tinea cruris are obese, male (because men produce more sweat than women), are accustomed to wearing tight and hot pants, have a history of skin disease or immune system disorders, for example due to diabetes, HIV/AIDS, long-term steroid use, currently undergoing chemotherapy, or also experiencing malnutrition.
In addition to tinea cruris, your complaints may also arise due to other causes, such as cutaneous candidiasis (candida yeast infection), scabies (scabies), impetigo, genital lice, seborrheic dermatitis (chronic skin inflammation that causes the skin to peel like dandruff), psoriasis, contact dermatitis, drug eruptions, lichen planus, and so on.
In mild conditions, complaints like the one you are experiencing should go away on their own as long as you are able to maintain good personal hygiene. However, if the complaint lasts up to 1 month or more, then you should immediately consult a doctor for further treatment. If based on the results of the physical examination, the doctor suspects that your complaint is caused by a fungal infection, the doctor may prescribe a topical antifungal medication or several other types of medication to relieve your complaint.
Good personal hygiene is the fulcrum of handling complaints around the genitals, including an itchy and peeling penis. Therefore, you should always keep yourself clean, by diligently bathing, always cleaning the intimate organs after every bowel movement, and always wearing clean clothes. As much as possible, avoid rinsing the sex organs using water of questionable quality. Also, avoid wearing clothes that are too tight and made of heat. Last, but not least, avoid all forms of risky sexual activity, because infection transmission around the penis, one of which is often mediated by free sex.
