Customer Question
My glans is really...

My glans is really dry and scaly. Should I be worried?

Doctor's Assistant: Can you tell me about all the symptoms you've noticed (e.g. itching, rash, new birthmarks or moles)?

Well, occasionally I get red bumps and itchiness from what I assume is some kind of contact dermatitis. But now its just really dry looking, with fissures.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the bumps better or worse?

I've used both clotrimazole, nystatin, and most recently mupirocin. The last one has worked the best for the bumps. Whereas the nystatin has really thinned my skin out. But they all seem to cause it to become really dry. And I've dealt with it maybe 6-8 times this year, 2-3 times last year.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No, thats it

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
