I think that I have developed a condition under the foreskin

Customer Question
of the penis that might...
I think that I have developed a condition under the foreskin of the penis that might have become infected. I was prescribed a cream to treat genital warts that did not work but did burn very badly. I have some bleeding and a yellow discharge. I am new to the area and am 78 years old. I was told by my dermatologist that I might need to be circumcised.

Hi Dr Stan here to help you today. You have tried multiple treatments that have failed. A circumcision would remove the foreskin allowing healing to occur on the shaft of your penis. You should be evaluated by a Urologist who can perform this procedure under local anesthetic. I hope this is helpful and your problem is resolved quickly. I am here to answer any additional questions you may have. I am compensated only after you provide a positive rating for me. Thanks foe allowing me to help.

Hello

With bleeding and yellow discharge, at this point, you do not want to wait for a urologist, which could take days to weeks, and you do not want to let such an infection go on.

This will make surgery more difficult, and can cause more scarring.

Go to urgent care now.

a. Have this cultured for the lab.

b. Get an antibiotic immediately.

c. Follow up with the lab to make sure the antibiotic covers the main bug infecting this.

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.
