Sorry for the delay. The photo's coloring makes it a little difficult but it looks like a smooth, flat redness to the head?

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Sorry but there's an orange hue to the whole photo but at least I don't see any flaking of the skin. So is this just a patch of redness?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes the penis head is cracked inflamed (red)
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK Rees. Besides the clortrimazole what else have you tried?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Daktacort which contains miconazale and hydrocortisone
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK. I don't think this is fungal balanitis then. Most likely its a type of eczematous dermatitis and you need to try a straight cortisone cream instead of the Daktacort. It may be that the micronazole is actually irritating things here. That said, if you haven't had a doctor look at this, you should
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
What cream only contains cortisone and how long will it take to get rid of this symptom
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
There are a lot of over the counter cortisone creams that you can get at any drug store--just ask the pharmacist. I'd suggest applying it three times a day and it should clear this up in about two weeks
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Any oral tablets to take?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
No, that kind of cortisone requires a prescription. Let me know how it goes and please remember to rate my service to you

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
That's a gopd moisturizer but it doesn't have hydrocortisone in it. Here's a link for you
