I haven’t had unprotected sex since me and my wife had baby who is now 6 months old. To be honest haven’t had much intercourse since. Discharge is like thin and smelly and all the time, when it’s at it’s worse head of my penis is red with rash when I urinate no pain

No meds

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.
Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.
As per your description, It indicates Balanitis.

Other possible differential diagnosis may include Prostatitis.

And it can be caused due to bacterial or yeast infection and caused by bad hygiene,degradation and biological decomposition of organic matter accumulated on the head of the penis and on the foreskin.

If you don’t maintain regular hygiene of that area the bacteria in that area starts procreating and degrades these products producing odd smell resulting in itching,rash.

I think that you should wash your foreskin with an antibacterial soap for a few days and apply OTC Hydrocort cream and Polysporin cream.

Also use Zeasorb powder.

You should maintain a good hydration.

If that doesn’t solve the problem of the smelly discharge then you should talk to your doctor and culture of discharge can be done.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
