Have some red spots on penis head and its itching. What are these? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you today?
Hello again ,
sorry got disconnected
So how can I help you today?
I have some red spots on my penis head and its itching , i travelled on the last weekend and came home and while cleaning myself noticed 2 red spots . After washing it went away with a few red spots but today there is itching
What do you think is the cause?
when i went to urinate and noticed the penal head the spots have become more. i spoke to one of the doctors in Healthcare magic and he told to use candid b cream , wanted to consult further with a specialist
Did something unusual happen while travelling?
It can be anything like bathing in ocean, etc
Any unexpected sexual exposure?
none doc , we went with family and am married for 1.5 yrs and use condom with my wife as we are delaying kids
Did candid-b cream work?
no today only i chatted with another doctor
and am yet to use it
Can you send me a photo of the lesions?
Since it is hard to narrow the diagnosis just on discussion
It may just be a heat rash
It may be dermatitis
Or it can be fungal infection
For heat rash and dermatitis, simple measures work
For fungal infection you need candid
b component in candid b is steroidal
what is dermatitis
It happens due to skin reacting to some irritant
an example is diaper rash
It is non-infectious
how can i send you a pic
Address it to my name
will you be able to hold on doc
i will wait
you want a close up on the penal head and any thing more
that should suffice
sure thank you , please give me five to 10 mins and do hold on to this chat . you will recieve it from YYYY@YYYY
i just sent the pic to you
I'm still waiting for the pics
ok , did send it a few sec back
could it be due to allergy
hope you recieved it
Yes I received it
It seems like dermatitis
I will suggest that you try milder medicine first
I have one question before I suggest something
Does your partner has some rash?
Maybe yeast infection
will there be any symptoms
in her case
we have never had intercourse without condoms
There will be discharge--maybe smelly
So chance of transmission
Though yeast infection is not considered sexually transmitted
It may affect temporarily the male partners
From the description and photographs it seems like dermatitis
It may be allergic or from friction or from tight innerwears
It may be worthwhile to try mild rash creams
i did use soap to wash the penal head (fiama d wills bathing gel ) to wash today and its become dry a bit i feel
You can try aveeno cream
any tablet ?
Tablets are not needed
It should go away soon
how to apply this
Till then also avoid tight innerwear
Also avoid friction on the skin
If this much does not work
Then you can go for a mild steroidal cream
Avoid keeping the area wet
Diaper rash creams are also good as they contain zinc oxide
and are good for quick healing of skin and are mild
any recommendations on diaper rash creams
There is one cream
It is called as Diaper Rash Cream
Thats the name
and we will get it in any medical store
Aveeno and diaper rash cream
You can get at any good store
Hydrocortisone you will find at pharmacy
aveeno anti itch cream or moisturising
should i use both ?
aveeno + diaper rash
or only aveeno
Both can be used
During day you can just use aveeno
For night time diaper rash cream
and how to apply , wash first and apply on the infected area ?
its not infected area
Its affected area
sorry my bad
So any other question?
doc , how many days should i try this for and what is the reason for urinalysis and microscopy
For 3 days
To rule infections like yeast infection, etc
Also take fruits and vegetables
Drink pure water and hygienic food
Sometimes we bath in contaminated water while travelling
It may result in such issues
So take care about it
Do you have any question here?
sure thanks for your time and patience , if i have to contact you how can i do so
You can call the customer care team and they will help you with it
Also I am usually available during evening hours
final one on the application part as well , i apply it and take the skin front again?
I will advise to keep the area dry as much as possible
If bringing the skin forward makes it wet then try to avoid it
Any other question?
Are you there?
Are you there?
