I have a red blotch mark on the side of the head of my penis. It's not itchy or of any discomfort . My wife thought it might be thrush that I might have picked up from her while she had it. I have used canestan cream for the last 5 days , twice a day. There seems to be no improvement on red mark going. It has not spread or got bigger in any way.

Hi Bryan

I just got your pic

This is an infection

Balanitis

This needs oral antibiotics right away

in the meantime, apply a triple antibiotic over the counter
