Brief Answer: Candidiasis glans penis Detailed Answer: Hi, I understand your concern regarding your skin problem and I hope I am able to help you in the same. I have seen the attached pictures. You seem to be having candidal balanitis. This is basically a fungal infection of the glans region. Since you get it after a contact every time, there is a possibility that your partner has candidal infection as well. Now you need to apply a topical antifungal cream containing clotrimazole over the affected area twice a day for atleast a week continuously. You might as well get your partner checked up and treated for the same. Candidiasis is a very common infection of the genitals which can occur in diabetics, in patients on immunosuppressive drugs, on antibiotics or it can be sexually transmitted. Hope it helps If you need any further clarifications, please ask. Dr Geetika Paul.

I m a 32year male, generally healthy. Literally over a night or two, I have developed a red, raised rash on the skin between my butt cheeks. I originally thought it was haemorrhoids and so tried zinc oxide and lidocaine cream, after bathing them in salt water, but felt it started to spread further onto the cheek and up towards my scrotum. I therefore thought it could be fungal nappy rash (due to sweating and hot weather) and so bought clotrimazole 2%, which I have ude for 2 days now, but to little improvement. Any thoughts please? Thank you!

i have clotrimazole and betamethasone dipropionate lotion 30 mL my PCP doctor gave it to me to use around my ankles as i had a red itchy rash around both ankles. the lotion did take the rash away. i have gotten a red rash on my face on the right cheek that is also very itchy. my makeup only conceals it a little, as it more noticeable under lights or when i am outside. i take cholesterol medication and blood pressure medicine, also for anxiety i take generic version of xanax .025 2 to 3 times a day. Would this lotion be safe to try to use on my cheek.

Thanks very much. I am 75 years old and my name is Marcy.

I have a rash in my left armpit only. Little itch. My doctor prescribed and I used a tube of ketocamozole. After six weeks I returned to the doctor. He then prescribed, which I took, a four day course of ketocamozole. Each time the rash greatly improved but did not quite go away. Same response when I use OTC anti-fungal, lotrimin.The rash is almost non-existent, but flares up when I perspire. Always there.Should I try a steroid of some type?
