I accidently bought triple antibiotic cream WITH pain

Customer Question

I accidently bought triple antibiotic cream WITH pain relief, pramoxine hci 10mg, to use in conjunction with clotrimazole 1% for what appears to be balantitis. Can or is it safe to use that on such a sensitive area?

Sorry for some reason I don't think I got a notification. I think it's healed up now but he keeps getting these and he never had any problems at all until a few years ago, and he keeps getting them repeatedly, he changed thread type on his undergarments and had not had a problem in about a half year when normally he gets these once every 1-3 months at least, and hadn't had any problems in half a year at least, so we assumed it was the threadings, but same threads, same soap, but he does do a lot of manual labor, at what point is it time to do something medically about this problem?

Hello!Recurrent balanitis would most commonly be caused by Candida.This may be readily treated with an antifungal such as clotrimazole or Nystatin .Moist damp and warm conditions predispose to this. More recurrent episodes may warrant a closer look ....more frequent fungal infections can be a symptom of diabetes so I think if this has been a more frequent problem with balanitis that a check on the sugar metabolism ( FASTING glucose plus hemoglobin A1C) would be reasonable. I hope that this is helpful.Let me know if you have further questions.Best Regards!Anthony Bray MD
