Having rashes on the side of shaft of penis. Used clobetasol propionate. Suggest
User rating for this question
What is this rash-like thing on the side of my shaft? Ive had it for about 2 weeks now. It showed up about two weeks after I had protected anal sex with another guy. I put some "clobetasol propionate" on it and it seemed to go away (skin is still droopy but redness and pumps are gone) but then it just moved up to under the heax of my penis. Please help!

1. The lesion does not burn but it can get very itchy. 2. I do not take any medication. 3. I had a patch on my inner thigh in the past few months. I also had an extremely itchy patch on my left testicle. I got tested when I had both of these for herpes, hiv, and all other stds and they all came back negative.I have not gotten tested for this patch.

Brief Answer: You seem to have candidal balanoposthitis. Detailed Answer: Hi, It seems that you are having candidal balanoposthitis. Keep the area clean. Take Sitz bath using XXXXXXX warm water mixed with few drops of dettol. I would start anti fungal like itraconazole or ketoconazole for two weeks. Antihistaminic like levocetirizine may be used until itch is relieved. You can also apply antifungal cream like clotrimazole twice a day. Avoid soap bath. Improve hygiene and immunity for the prevention of the disease. I hope you got my answer. Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications. Dr. Ilyas Patel MD
