Hello, It is a bit embarrassing but Ive got to ask as I am

This answer was rated:

Hello,
It is a bit embarrassing but I've got to ask as I am not sure why this is happening to me. Well, I am 28 year old male, and recently I bought a masturbator and it came with lubricant obviously. The thing is that, my penis weirdly started to became extremely itchy and red as well as very puckered on top and just lower part of top. I investigated it on the webpages, and I came up with the idea that it might be a psoriasis, since it has all the symptoms of this disease. However I am not quite sure if it psoriasis. And the worse thing is that, it is growing gradually. It has been a week now, I did not masturbate for 5 days to see if this will make any sense. However, it doesn't matter whether or not I masturbate. To let you know, I do not have a girlfriend for a while and haven't had a girl for a while. So I am tend to think I've got an infection from that bloody masturbator. What would be your suggestions. Thanks in advance!

Dr. Thomas, MD :

Hello

Dr. Thomas, MD :

The most likely type of infection would be fungal

Dr. Thomas, MD :

What you could do is try chlortirmazol, and antifungal

Dr. Thomas, MD :

For 5 days

Dr. Thomas, MD :

If you are not rapidly getting better then this needs to be swabbed for the lab and looked at

Customer:

Hello

Dr. Thomas, MD :

Yes an infection is possible.

Dr. Thomas, MD :

How are you otherwised/

Customer:

I have never had any infection or disease before this

Dr. Thomas, MD :

Dr. Thomas, MD :

psoriasis, eczema,

Dr. Thomas, MD :

Dr. Thomas, MD :

bites

Dr. Thomas, MD :

etc

Customer:

Allright, how likely it can affect my sexual life?

Dr. Thomas, MD :

very unlikely if you get prompt attention

Dr. Thomas, MD :

You should not let it go on undiagnosed

Customer:

So what you suggest is to use chlortirmazol or antifungal

Customer:

?

Customer:

Well I am a bit embarrassed about it

Dr. Thomas, MD :

chlortrimazol is an antifungal

Dr. Thomas, MD :

I would suggest that your doctor look at it

Customer:

Oh I see

Customer:

Sorry

Dr. Thomas, MD :

no problem

Dr. Thomas, MD :

If it is fungal it will get better rapidly

Customer:

I bought psoriasis gel and used it 3 times in one day just to see if any changes happening but don't think it helped me

Dr. Thomas, MD :

do not do that

Customer:

Since I dont know what it is exactly

Dr. Thomas, MD :

psoriasis gel would make an infection worse

Dr. Thomas, MD :

so

Dr. Thomas, MD :

have your doc look at it

Dr. Thomas, MD :

use nothing but antifungal if you must use something

Customer:

No I hav not been to doctor since I tought it will go away

Dr. Thomas, MD :

Same advice

Customer:

Is there any specia ltype of antifungal that I can buy?

Dr. Thomas, MD :

chlortrimazole

Dr. Thomas, MD :

it is over the counter

Dr. Thomas, MD :

but you still need to have your doctor look at it

Customer:

I see

Dr. Thomas, MD :

ok

Customer:

Well, let me to use it for a bit, and if I don't see any positive result I will then see a doctor, I don't know which doctor to see for this kind of diseases though

Dr. Thomas, MD :

any general doctor

Dr. Thomas, MD :

gp

Dr. Thomas, MD :

not out of the ordinary

Dr. Thomas, MD :

If it is fungal, they can give you something stronger

Customer:

Since it is genital disease I thought maybe theres a special doctor for this type of things

Dr. Thomas, MD :

not necessary

Customer:

Allright then, is there anything else that you would like to advice me doctor?

Customer:

Should I stop masturbating or should I take a shower several times a day? or I don't know

Dr. Thomas, MD :

Stop traumatizing it in any way

Customer:

Or food advice maybe

Dr. Thomas, MD :

you need a shower once a day

Dr. Thomas, MD :

no food is applicable here

Dr. Thomas, MD :

only diagnosis and proper treatment

Excellent I will take all these into consideration , will buy clotrimazole antifungal cream straight away
