Doctor :  
that is fine, continue to do the same
Doctor :  
continue over this week
User :   i think when i consulted u it was my 4 th day
Doctor :  
if the condition remains teh same, then you should visit a skin specialist to rule out fungal infection
User :   using calamine lotion
Doctor :  
also what you can try doing apart from this is a simple home remedy
Doctor :  
and see if it helps
User :   whats that
Doctor :  
apply coconut oil/olive oil/vit-E oil on the penis skin after bath
Doctor :  
what i mean to say is
User :   ok
Doctor :  
apply when having bath, before the last time you pour water
Doctor :  
and then pat it dry softly with a soft towel
Doctor :  
do not rub off the entire oil
User :   ok
Doctor :  
it will make skin supple
User :   ok
Doctor :  
and you can apply the calamine lotion as usual 2-3 times a day
Doctor :  
do this for another 1 week
Doctor :  
if the skin texture and symptoms improve then it is fine
User :   skin texture is removed
Doctor :  
else you should be making and appointment with the dermatologist and get this examined
User :   but the dryness remains
User :   ok
Doctor :  
the dryness should go off with the oil application during bath
Doctor :  
if it does not then fungal infection should be suspected
Doctor :  
and it should be examined and treated
