User:My fiancé and I had sex a couple of days ago and the following next day my clit has been itchy, and I just found out that over washing it in the shower isn't a good idea. I also notice that my fiancé has dry skin on his penis. It doesn't hurt for him to pee just dry flaky skin. But, we had sex the day before last and a part of the area has cracked a little where the dry area was and I also think it has something to so with not have enough moisture down there. I'm very nervous, I have been checked before getting into my current relationship with my fiance. I have an appointment this week with my doctor but, I'm kinda looking for some kind of answer until then. Please help!!!
Doctor:Hi,
Let me read your query for few minutes to be able to have a good discussion here.
User:Ok, thanks!
Doctor:Thanks for your patience. May I know your age?
User:I am 30 yrs old
Doctor:Right. Besides the itching, do you notice bumps, rashes or any other changes on the skin?
Doctor:Does it burn or hurt?
User:I've notice the flaps that cover my clit have a couple of red bumps but they just popped up this evening I've notice a few hours after taking my shower. The flaps itch like something crazy at times
User:Doesn't burn nor hurt
User:Same goes for my fiancé
Doctor:Ok.
Doctor:Was the intercourse a protected act?
User:No
Doctor:Does he have history of diabetes?
User:We use no condom because we would love to have a baby soon. I'm not sure if he does or not
Doctor:Ok. Thanks for providing the extra details.
Doctor:Let me brief you now.
User:Your welcome! I'm just wanting to get an idea of what it could be. He said no more sex until he heals up from the dryness and cracking of the skin when I stroke him
Doctor:The sudden appearance of itching and small rashes may be secondary to fricting or a common fungal infection.
Doctor:Lack of lubrication may be adding to it.
Doctor:I wouldn't suspect serious infection since you have already been tested negative and your partner is loyal to you.
User:I am wet at one point then dry the next and not to mention I am pretty tight.
Doctor:In this instance I would suggest you to abstain from intercourse for a few days say for a week.
Doctor:you can use over the counter antifungal agents on the itchy rash.
Doctor:Watch for burning sensation as well as abnormal discharges per vagina.
Doctor:As far as your fiance is concerned, it is mostly from the same cause.
User:What will help his penis of the dry skin?
Doctor:He can use triple antibiotic cream instead of antifungal to take care of secondary infections along with any fungus.
Doctor:He can alternate the cream with simple moisturizers.
Doctor:Encourage him to drink plenty of water.
User:Ok, I have an appointment with my doctor this week and not to mention I started my period today a well.
Doctor:It is good that your doctor appointment is round the corner; but I have a feeling that these itchy rashes will subside by the time you consult him
Doctor:if you can abstain from further sexual intercourse.
Doctor:Use the antifungal agent.
Doctor:It would be the same with your partner, but I would like him to try triple antibiotic instead of antifungal alone.
Doctor:Encourage him to drink lots of water. The same with you.
User:Ok, thank you so much!!!
Doctor:He should monitor these cracks for further worsening.
Doctor:He will need attention if it becomes sore or becomes swollen.
Doctor:Hope it is clear.
Doctor:Do you have any more questions?
User:Ok, I will get that cream for him and I In hopes it helps. No inter course for a week or so...I will keep an eye out on his penis healing...
User:And will have him go to the doctor if it gets worse
User:I think you've answered all my questions.
User:Thanks, you have been a big help.
Doctor:You are welcome.
Doctor:Thanks for consulting me.
Doctor:Bye for now.
