This is a little embarrassing but I have just travelled to…

Hello Pearl, Doctor's Assistant:...

Hello Pearl,

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

This is a little embarrassing but I have just travelled to China and before I left I had a little itch on my penis. Not enough to worry about I thought but it has now got itchier and there is pus coming out of it. I only have a lady interrupter assisting me and I know she would be shocked if I told her Can you maybe give me some advice on what I might need to do about this to get me back home. I leave here on the weekend Thanks

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

I came here on last Thursday. It was itchier after I got here but now it isnt so bad but I have never had anything wrong down there before

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

I have not had sex for about 2 months or any contact with anyone sexually I had a prostate scare about 2 years ago when my PSA went high and I had a biopsy but I saw the doctor in November just gone and he was happy. By the way I am 56 years old

I have been taking Tramazpen (sleeping tablets) at night but I have been taking them for years. Not sure on the name of the tablets s correct

Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.
As per your description, it indicates a fungal infection.

I would advise you some self-care remedies which you can try.
An application of OTC(over the counter) Hydrocort ointment and Lotrimin ointment on the affected site twice a day.
Take a cool water bath and keep it dry and afterward, apply OTC Zeasorb AF powder.
Take OTC Advil and Allegra.
Wear loose-fitting cotton fabric boxer.
Avoid rough masturbation, popping, scratching.

Maintain a good hydration with Gatorade.
Start Culturelle probiotic and Citrucel and Gas X.

If your symptoms will not show any improvement then see your doctor for a clinical exam.

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.
