Customer Question
Dear Sir/Madam:...

Dear Sir/Madam: I'm over 65, NOT circumsized and have swekking around my back of my penis head (where I have all the skin). What can I do?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the skin issue? Have you noticed any major changes in your overall skin or nails recently?

Only that area. The above word should have been "swelling".

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

Hi BP, and taking gaba-something for severe headaches. This happened long before that.

sweating in penis and private area can increase risks for skin fungal infections

antifungal powders and sprays and using baby powder on the area 3-4 times a day can keep the skin dry and fungus infection free.

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.
