Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of having white like a fungas around the broken skin of foreskin since last few weeks is most likely due to a condition called balanitis.It is the inflammation of the skin covering the head (glans) of the penis.

Its possible causes are:unhygenic conditions and tight foreskin lead to irritation by smegma, friction from rough sex,seborrhoeic dermatitis,contact allergy and other generalised skin conditions.

Skin swabs for bacterial or fungal culture might be taken to confirm infection.Urine & blood test may be required.

Following is recommended for you now:

  • Try wearing something different, nothing too tight, preferably a material that 'breathes' or, for underwear, wicks moisture.
  • Allow fresh air to circulate.
  • Keeping the area open at night(if possible) can help in quick healing & recovery.
  • Apply ointment clotrimazole .It is available as OTC without prescription & will help you greatly.
  • Apply cream containing 1 % hydrocortisone.
  • Keep your blood sugar level under control.

All this will help you greatly.

If still after this,the symptoms persists.then you need to make an appointment with your doctor as prescription oral medications -anti fungal & antibiotics will then be required accordingly.Usually & most likely,the symptoms gets subside with these treatment & doctor visit is less likely required.

Thank you.

Hope this helped
