Hello and welcome. I'm Dr Chip

What is your question please?

Customer: replied 21 days ago.
hi developed ringworm after hospital stay
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 21 days ago.

OK--are you asking how that should be treated?

Customer: replied 21 days ago.
now its on skin of my penis and almost puffy
Customer: replied 21 days ago.
can i use just jock itch meds
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 21 days ago.

OK--that's called balanitis.

Nothing too serious.

You can try treating it yourself with over the counter clortrimazole cream twice a day for two weeks.

If that isn't effective you'll need prescription ketoconazole cream or oral Diflucan.

Please let me know if you need any more information please
