Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
sounds fungal to me. Could be fungalI would ask for a combination cream from your doctor called lortisone. It works well for this
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Is there any other possibilityof it being anything else.and do I apply that cream to the penis head and testicles

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
I highly doubt it. It should be checked in person but I doubt it is anything else.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

The reason I ask is I've had it nearly 3 yrs on and off.and do I apply that cream on penis head and the testicles

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
yes all over where it is red.under doctor supervision only though
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

As you can imagine me been through thisfor so long and it comes and goes.can it come on through stress and depression as I suffer from this.and over 2 yrs ago went to see a dermatologist and he prescribed me anti depressants which I didn't take as I'm an hgv driver.and seen so many doctors the first 2 yrs.and I just gave up and thought it might just go on its own eventually.but came back a couple of weeks ago through being highly stressed and down.

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
I'm really sorry you have been through so much. That is terrible.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
