Customer Question
I am 63 and have...
I am 63 and have had genital herpes for about some 20 yrs. I had it under control all these times, its recurrence is irregular sometimes it can be a yr in between. Two weeks ago, it appeared with some bro***** *****ning on my skin (uncircumcised) where I think it's the retracting area is and then pus appeared in follow. The herpes itself seemed to get better overtime but broken (split) area did not seem to change from infected and cause fever and itch a lot. I have to put ice pad 24 hrs. When I go out I have to carry ice with me for soothing. What could this be. The split area is almost from left to right and with pus, and 1 milimether wide. Please let me know what do you think I might have in addition to herpes. My whole penis feels so sensitive at touch, not even underwear can be worn.

This looks like a condition called balanoposthitis. This is typically due to a fungal infection. You need to get into see your doctor or a urologist for an examination and they likely need to prescribe a steroid and antifungal cream such as betamethasone with clotrimazole. This could take 6 to 8 weeks to completely heal. Hope this helps.

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.
