This answer was rated:

Sore foreskin clears up then comes back again ! I'm diabetic and doctor says its due to my high sugar levels. I'm using timodine cream but its not clearing up . When I apply the cream I have a slight burning feeling ! No other symptoms ! Is he correct ?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Seems like a yeast infection thats related to your high blood glucose levels.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

The most important thing here is that you need to control your blood glucose levels to the optimum value.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

If your blood glucose is not controlled these infections will keep coming back.
