Hello i have a small pinkish patch on the head of my penis, i have taken three different photos over three different days, i first noticed it on saturday, i have been to my doctor but he didnt even examine me just looked at the photo i taken, i have some fucidin for one day and tried hydrocortozone 1 % just for one night in should i put anything on it or just leave it it does not itch, its smooth like the rest of the skin around its not a raised lump or painfull at all any suggestions? What could this be? It has faded in colour as you can see from the photos thankyou

pic 1 was took sat pic 2 took tues pic 3 taken today

This is Dr. David

I think I helped you before about 4 days ago

has the red patch started to fade?

I still think it is not an STD and most likely dermatitis from irritation from masturbation or from the heat or humidity.

I would just leave it be and make sure you wash with mild soap and water daily

Ok I have paid you a second time now, I just want to be definitely 100 percent it's nothing sinister that's all, do u have any idea what it is or the condition and how long will it take to go away
I am 100% sure it is nothing sinister.

you are the only one worry about this area of skin dermatitis which is getting better already with no creams.

I told you want it was already. it was some skin dermatitis irritation

it will take a few more days and it will completely go away.

It's still there and hasn't gone
is it less visble?
have you been washing with soap and water daily?
are you still masturbating?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It's about the same as not got any worse or any reder it's the same flat smooth
Yes been washing everyday and no have had no masturbation or sex

It's an anyifungul and anti inflammatory cream
it is not a fungal infection on the penis
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
So if it's not fungal what is it then? It can't just be nothing if it's not going away only less red - r u sure it's nothing
I have told you want it is
it is dermatitis of the skin
it has gotten better as I told you it would
I told you not to put anything on the skin but you didn't listen to me.
it is going away slowly
