ok thanks.
I finally received the pictures and looked at all of them. THis does not look like any STD that I am aware of. THis does just look like a severe case of balanitis and you may need to be treated with a more potent prescription topical steroid called clobetazole for 4-6 weeks to try to get this skin to heal. You probably need to apply some moisturizing lotion such as Eucerin cream to the area as well. Hope this helps.

Hi Doctor,

Thanks for the answer. I just got the results back from the biopsy and there was some fungus present apparently. So should i continue with the clotrimazole as well or should i move to another form of anti-fungal medication. 2 days ago the skin on the side of my penis was very itchy and looked swollen. Then the next day it was dry. Also I don't know if you noticed but on the side just under neath the head of the penis is a small sore. It's quite painful. but im not sure if its a backterial infection or not.

If there is fungus present, then you should continue the clotrimazole for at least 4-6 weeks, or until it clears up. This does not look like a bacterial infection. If looks like balanitis from a fungal infection.

ok, is it possible that i screwed up and made the yeast stronger? i am really worried. I hope this doesn't become a life long infection. it would destroy my sex life.

No, the yeast did not become stronger. It is just not completely treated. You need to continue to use the clotrimazole until it clears up.

Doc,
It appears that it has spread to my shaft.
The head is not as dry as before since I stopped using soap but there is a rash on the shaft now. i am wondering if it has spread there.
If you think it has spread, you should see a doctor for a repeat exam to confirm what this may be. But you may need to apply the cream to the shaft as well.

Customer reply replied 4 years ago

Ok So do i still need to use the mosturizing lotion as well with the anti fungal?

I can't tell without being able to examine you. You need to see a doctor for an exam to determine this. But you probably need to continue the antifungal, not the moisturizer
