I have mysterious rash on my penis that appears only when I do not wash. When I shower or bath it it disappears. I have been to my GP and they referred me to dermatologist who did not give me great confidence.Help ?
Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you today. I look forward to working with you.
Are you diabetic?

No Im not diabetic
This looks like a condition called balanitis. This can be treated with a steroid cream called betamethasone. It may take 6-8 weeks to clear up. You will need to see your urologist or primary doctor for this prescription. Hope this helps.

I have already been prescribed this type of cream. Maybe I did not allow for the 6-8 weeks ?
If you did not use it twice a day for 6 to 8 weeks, this is probably the reason why I did not heal. It takes this long for this type of information to clear out. You need to continue using the medication.
