Good evening Doctor,
I have bright red blotches on the helmet of my penis and on the inside of my foreskin,the whole area is extremely itchy although not sore.
I am very hygienic and have not been with multiple sexual partners.
Thank you for any advice.
Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.This is likely a fungal infection given severe itchiness and redness. Dampness and sweating are ideal for fungal growth promotion.You can try following over the counter medications:1. Clotrimazole cream twice daily 2. Hydrocortisone cream twice daily. You can apply them together leave for 2 hours before any washing. Avoid too much soap application which can delay healing process.
