Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Good evening, I am Dr Ruff. Thank you for contacting us this evening.
I am sorry to hear you have this irritation. How long have you had this please? and have you tried any treatment so far?
Great, yes, if you could then would make it easier to provide an answer if you can.
Thank you. This is Balanitis. It is inflammation of the end of the penis secondary to what is most likely to be fungal in origin. This is the most common cause.
Treatment is with a topical antifungal, which you can get over the counter without a prescription. A common one is Clotrimazole.
If you ask a pharmacist then they will be able to provide this for you.
I hope this helps, but use the cream for 7-14 days.
That is my pleasure. I hope this settles down quickly for you. Take care.
