Hi
The sores after sex and the itching all the time but not after sex.
Doctor: Dr.Amita, Doctor replied 8 years ago
The sores appearing after sex could be due to allergy to candida in your partner's vagina. She should be treated with anti-fungals.
The itching could be due to a mild form of balanitis or dermatitis.
Properly clean under the foreskin to remove any smegma which has accumulated.
Do not use scented or perfumed soaps.
You may also have candidiasis. So if treatment of partner does not help you may need to show yourself.
A dermatitis may respond to hydrocortisone cream.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
