I am abit worried, other than the itchness sometimes no other symptoms i have exprienced. I had that feeling of wanting to pee after i have pee'd for about 2-3 days when i first spotted the whitish skin on my penile. Kindly advice. my partner yesterday came home and said that she feels like she is burning on her lips of her vagina but she also said that she changed her panty liner and that may be the cause of her discomfort as it had abit of perfume and she is sensitive to it.

HiI see nothing abnormal here except a small scrape on the skin.This is most likely part of the fungal infection.That said, both of you should be seeing your doctors.

Dr Thomas my question was that I bought fluconazole tablets yesterday and have been using chlortrimazole cream for the last two weeks now. Is that fine??Thanks again
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.
You should not take any oral medication without your doctors supervision.I see no indication from your picture for the need for oral medication.No, it is not fine.We do not prescribe, treat or diagnose on the site.
