Painful, dry, cracked, itchy foreskin with scab peeling off now

Posted by BlissfullyInsane


 any help in this matter would be appreciated.  my male friend has developed some blackness around the tip of the foreskin with dryness, itchiness, and cracks that look red.  for the itchiness, i got him 1% hydrocortisone cream, which helped, but other than that, the dryness, cracks and blackness is still there.  he says it is very painful to retract the skin to urinate.  this morning, i noticed some scab starting to peel off.  overall, he is in a lot of pain and i am concerned.  please kindly advice.
