I have been treating with a mix of canestan anti fungal and dermovate cream in the last week and it is seeming to improve the symptons I think but I want another professional opinion. There is a gland or vain which seems to be filled with some type of liquid on the underside of the penis. I have tried to show it in the last photo but it doesn't come up that well. My foreskin is definitely a little tighter than before and it can often cause discomfort during sex. I have been on a candida diet for the last week so if you think it is a candida infection then I will continue with this.
I have had many doctors look at it with different viewpoints. They have given me the steroid cream as well as the anti fungal treatment so I haven't got any of this over the counter but I wanted a dermatological opinion. Why does it flare up and stay for a long time (many months on end) then sometimes it is good for a similar period? does this rule out or suggest it would be one thing or the other?
Once they sample it and get the results, will I be able to control it better because otherwise it is flared up everyday which is pretty frustrating. Could a certain diet help? I know eczema is a chronic condition but trying to avoid flare ups all the time would be nice.
I should have stomach problems which range from bloating through to more painful cramps and my mother suffers from the same thing. When I take protein shakes the problem becomes much worse and my stomach feels as though it is churning so I am wondering whether this suggests some type of intolerance, maybe to milk or dairy products and this may be contributing to the problem? I have set up an appointment to get everything tested from allergies through the a sample of the redness to try and determine it but I find it strange if the two were not related?
It never seems to be particularly dry and/or itchy. I have added some pictures where it is slightly inflamed and red here. I have put some chamomile cream on to see if that helps so that is why the skin may look shiny.
For example after friction such as sex, the penis is very red. I make sure not to wash with any soaps in the area and I will go purchase more products for the whole body which are perfume free and better for the skin. The washing detergent could be an answer, I will purchase so scent free bio washing powder also. The fact that I had it before and it went away and then came back after about a year, what does this say about the problem? Thanks
Is there a way to test the skin to help narrow down what it could be caused by? I am eliminating washing powders, soaps etc.. but I want to know if there is also a medical test to clarify more concretely what it could be? Thanks
I have attached another photo of how it looks today. I don't know if this will help understand better what the problem is but I thought it best to show you in case this helps.
