Brief Answer:
Zocon is one of the good medicines, please take as recommended

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX,
Thanks for writing in to us.

I have read through your query in detail.
Please find my observations below.

1. Tablet Zocon 150 contains Fluconazole 150 mg and is a recommended medicine to treat severe fungal infection including in the penis. Please take this medicine as recommended and effects will be seen in 15 days time.

2. Enzoheal contains Bromelain(25%)–Mupirocin(2%) and is given to treat mild bacterial skin infections.

3. Please continue taking the medicine given and follow the instructions given below
(i) Wash your genitals twice daily with warm water and keep it dry and apply ointment twice daily
(ii) Wear cotton inner wear and this will prevent sweat formation
(iii) Avoid sharing clothes and towels
(iv) Do not scratch the area if you have itching. This will decrease in a week.

Hope this answers your question. Please feel free to correct any oversight in my interpretation of your problems and discuss them in detail as per your requirements.

Hope your query is answered.
Do write back if you have any doubts.
