Brief Answer:
DoxT usually safe with present medication

Detailed Answer:
Dox-T is usually safe, and it is very unlikely that you will use it for a prolonged period and therefore it is unlikely to interfere with present medication.
You can use Surfaz cream after retracting the foreskin over your glans penis, and please take care after you have finished applying to replace the foreskin properly, fully covering the glans.
If you have significant difficulty and inflammation of glans and foreskin is persisting despite medication, and you are not a diabetic, and your blood sugar levels are controlled, you might require circumcision to prevent flare up of balanoposthitis.
Hope I have been able to help you.
