My husband has a repeated problem with his penis over the last

Customer Question

My husband has a repeated problem with his penis over the last six months. He keeps getting thrush, at least once a month, and has had three episodes of what i can only describe as insect bite like marks on the penile skin close to the fore skin and along the shaft. Only about 1 cm area effected. It is causing him a lot of discomfort

The issue may not be thrush at all. The insect bite mark and thrush symptoms could also be recurrent herpes. He should see a Dr to have the lesions swabbed and blood work done.
