Brief Answer:
Yeast infection, topical antifungal and antihistaminic

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic,

I have gone through your complaints and these symptoms could be due to yeast infection.

I would recommend you to take antihistaminic like tablet Cetirizine 10 mg once or twice daily depending on the intensity of itching and apply an antifungal cream like Sertaconazole or Clotrimazole cream on the affected areas twice daily.

Also, please get your blood sugar levels checked and urine routine examination as sometimes it can be associated with diabetes.

Regards
Dr Asmeet

The edges of the glans of penis i.e. Soft skin is getting swelled often and it could be easily noticeable.

I'm using clotrimazole powder right now and I will be taking up the above mentioned prescription by you from tomorrow.

Should I take any other medications other than above mentioned ones to reduce swell or to keep penis normally?

Please help me out.
