From the description given it looks like you might have or had balanoposthitis. The reasons are several. It is important to stop the clobetasol and get the region examined by the nearby Dermatologist or General Physician for confirmation of the above possibility. If confirmed this is completely treatable with proper medication.

Clobetasol cream does no good for your problem.

You need a better lubrication like KY Jelly before you try to harden the penis. This also helps for better penetration during intercourse.

Let me know if you have further inqury into the problem.

Dear Doctor,

It was supposed to get prescription of medicine from your side,Any way,I have contacted a doctor.He has prescrbed Fluconazole-150 mg Tablets ,once daily for a month.Candid ointment twice daily.
Let me know,is it OK ?

Yes, go ahead with this treatment. Keep the area dry and use lubrication if you resume the intercourse.

As the diagnosis was not made I cannot give a prescription here.

If you do not have further queries, please close our discussion now.

Wish you good health.
