When did the blotchy red patches appear first?
User :   been honest about year ago
User :   ive had chlymadia test done twice but doctors say i havnt got anything
User :   one doctor said thrush but would like to check with you first
Doctor :  
Did he treat you for the thrush?
User :   i had cream forgotten the name of it a i was serving in afghanistan at the time so been stupid i didnt really have much time and jus forgot about the cream
Doctor :  
What is your age?
User :   but one nurse did mention something about putting tip of my penis in glass of salt water which i havent tried
User :   im 22
Doctor :  
I too feel it as thrush
Doctor :  
and thrush is not serious
Doctor :  
You can apply warm salt water with a wisp of cotton thrice a day
User :   it isnt? but how long can thrush stay with you until treated because as i never treated it got little worried
User :   thrice do you mean twice a day what you mean by wisp of cotton?
Doctor :   thrice a day

Doctor :  
with wisp of cottion dipped in warm salt water
Doctor :  
Thrush healing depends on many factors
User :   right so put some warm salt water in glass dip the cotton wool in to the glass and rub that over the redness?
Doctor :  
your local hygiene, sexual intercourse, the under garments, your other medical history
Doctor :  
If it is recurrent thrush then it should be evaluated in terms of diabetes, other std screening
Doctor :  
A topical antibiotic shall heal the thrush very easily than applying a coat of salt water
User :   can i get that over the counter without prescription
Doctor :  
I am not sure about it your country
Doctor :  
Usually a topical nystatin is given
Doctor :  
So please consult any GP for it
User :   okie ill try get it over the counter if not then ill book myself into see my gp
Doctor :  
Excellent
User :   so first what is it i actually ask for over the counter just antibiotic
Doctor :   No nystatin

User :   nystatin ok
Doctor :   Is there anything else I can help you with?
User :   is that a liquid
