Hi, I have a red rash on my penis which I believe is dermatitis (as I have had before) I have tried using thrush cream but it appears to make it worse. I’ve had it for about 10 days and it hasn’t cleared yet

Thank you.

I have seen the picture.

This does look like dermatitis. I will suggest that you stop using the antifungal/thrush cream and apply 1 percent hydrocortisone cream thrice a day on the area, keep the area moisturized and avoid sexual intercourse and masturbation until this has healed.

If you need more assistance, please use the reply box below and let me know. It has been my pleasure to assist you and I hope I have earned a 5-star rating today.

Hi Doc, I went to the pharmacy and bought the cream that you mentioned. It does advise not to be used on genital area, is there a specific cream I need to buy for that or is that just a warning?

No, the warning is not to use it inside the urethra and the vagina. You can use it on the penis skin.
