Question: Hello Dr. XXXXXXX Goel, Thank you for your diagnosis & remedy suggested. Many thanks for the alternate medicine suggested instead of Forcan 200 mg. I have taken tablets AF- 150 mg once daily for 5 days & applied the Canestan Cream locally on my penis. I am feeling better. The soreness & redness of the vein joining the foreskin to the tip of the penis has gone. So has the burning sensation. I am now able to pull my foreskin backwards without any pain. However I still feel that this is not as spontaneous & natural as before & takes some time & needs to be pulled slowly as the skin of the opening remains shrunk. Regards

Brief Answer: Contnue taking medicines for few more days. Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for your query.Since your query was unanswered by Dr XXXXXXX Goel, I am answering it with kind permission from from XXXXXXX It seems that you had ,what is called as Muco Cutaneous Genital Candidiasis and Dr Goel has suggested you to take Fluconazole and topical anti fungal cream ( Canestan Cream) and it has worked out very well. Now you are able to retract your foreskin with little difficulty . I would suggest you to use the same medication for few more days,and to get your blood sugar levels done to rue out Diabetes. If problem persists even after taking medicines for 2 more weeks ,consult qualified Urologist for clinical evaluation and to decide whether you need to get circumcised or not Hope I have answered your query. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask me I shall be happy to help you . Thanks and Regards. Dr.Patil. I

I'm 58 and I had a circumcision done about three months ago. Today my desire to have sex with my wife is very high; I have no problems with having erections but for some reason I stiill have some numbness and I can't ejaculate because I can't completely feel the warmth inside my wife's vagina.

My husband is uncircumcised. And lately he has been having a problem with tearing during intercourse and swelling of his foreskin. He works out a lot and I don't feel he replenishes his fluid the way he should. Could this be the issue causing the problem.

I've noticed a lump inside my penis, dorsal side directly behind the glans, rather quickly growing, hard, and has become sensitive to examination, has caused a curvature, and is causing noticeable discomfort during sex. what could it be? approximate time from discovery (felt like a thickening of a vein) to thumbnail size (width) 1 inch @ length, and thicker near the glans (@3/4 ") less than 60 days.

xThis may sound stupid, however, I am extremely worried. I am a teenager and as one does, I decided to 'experiment' with various methods of masturbation. However, today once I had finished I noticed there was bleeding on the head of the penis, not out of the urethra. The frenulum was bleeding as were a part of the head of the penis, (the glands from what I've gathered from diagrams). Straight after noticing it I washed the cut with water, before applying both soap and water. In total I've washed it around 4 times today, yet when I pulled down my foreskin earlier there was a goo on both of the bled areas (puss?). What should I do, I am getting seriously worried, should I see a doctor, is it infected or is it a mere cut? Thanks

Hi there Dr. Kakkar, I have asked you a question before about pumps on my penis. I went to see a local doctor and he confirmed your diagnosis and prescribed a cream which took care of the bumps within 10 days. Thanks you very much for that....
