User :   above a month ago i started to have a itchy feeling over my forehead of my penis.I didn't care much about it that time and I used to masturbate day i examined inside of foreskin and saw 3 small tiny dots and I ignored it and masturbated next morning it seemed to have aggravated and I have a strong itchy feeling.After 3 days or so the itchy feeling started to recede.I consulted a doctor (dermatologist). he said he will be treating me for blantitis and prescribed diflucan (150mg) 1 pill and ninazol (ketconazole) shampoo and asked me to apply over my foreskin. As I my forehead itch receded. I didn't took that pill but the next week end I got aroused and i had a slight itchy feeling and I examined my foreskin it seemed to be normal but i still can see that tiny dots but 4 or 5 in number. I kept examined my foreskin more frequently by stretching it and that action seemed to aggravated my itchy feeling again. I took that diflucan and applied that ninazol shampoo only once but it doesn't seemed effective. symptoms: 1.tiny dots in the inside of my foreskin 2.itchy feeling over my foreskin 3.white scaling over my forehead of penis 4.whenever i rub my penis the itchy feeling to aggravate. male : 27 years old
i posted this exactly two months ago and I continue wash my penis with the prescribed shapoo(ninazol) daily ever since by removing my foreskin..the white flakes seem to disappear when I wash but time to time it comes back again...I see no end to it

Doctor :   Let me read your query
User :   hi thanks..
User :   after 27 years old is what I posted now I have this problem now for more than 3 months...
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   It is good that you have observed it
Doctor :   It is more in favor of a bacterial infection
User :   ok
User :   what shall I do now..
Doctor :   So mainly you should concentrate on genital hygiene
Doctor :   Like washing your glans everyday
Doctor :   with soap and water
User :   I am washing my penis daily for nearly 4 months with shampoo prescribed by doctore (ninazol) but still no improvement..
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Normal white spots can be due to dried secretions as well
Doctor :   and not just infections
Doctor :   Now with the ketoconazole treatment
Doctor :   how did it respond initially?
User :   but I have small dots under my foreskin and from time to time it seem to aggravate...If I masturbate or have sex I think I will be in huge trouble then...
Doctor :   Not as huge trouble
Doctor :   but if you are having sexual intercourse
Doctor :   then it is advisable to use a condom
User :   I didn't see any major improvements it seemed to be fine for couple of days and then again that itchy feeling starts when I happen to rub my penis it aggravates..
Doctor :   Ok
User :   I don't even masturbate if I did once or twice when I felt better it aggravated the next and it continued for another week or so.. so I stopped after that
Doctor :   From your end, now concentrate more on hygiene
