hi i would like 2 ask my penis is itching and getting large
Greetings from New York, this is Dr. Jerry E. I'm so glad you asked this question, let me give you some medical information now.
By getting large, do you mean the entire penis is swelling or is there swelling in a certain area?

I think you are suffering from Candida balanitis. -A male yeast infection- it is sometimes referred to as penile yeast infection or "jock itch". Definition: Candida balanitis is inflammation of the glans penis. When the foreskin (or prepuce) is also affected, it is termed balanoposthitis. Try one of these over the counter creams to take care of it-

Lotrimin (clotrimazole)

Monistat (miconazole)

is that a cream,i will apply the 2 of them?how many days i will see the different?

Both are creams. You will only need to buy one. The monistat cream is typically used for women's yeast infections but will treat your symptoms the same. Follow directions per the outside of cream and you should see results pretty quickly.
