Suggest remedies for a rash on the penis
I have a penis rash issue. it's like a white thin layer which is slightly itchy and causes pain on the penis head with some soreness.
Had googled online three months ago and got flucloxocilin 500mg taken 4 times a day for a week. it helped and healed. but it tends to come back after a month. took another dose and same cycle again. it's back now. but it's less..still painful when I touch and also during full erection. There is a small cut on my foreskin from where the foreskin is attached or starts from. No release of fluids, it's dry.
Upon using a cream or baby oil the layer rubs out but leaves the head rather darker in color.
I don't feel any internal pains. No smell too. it's clean.
Please advice what it is and how this is caused. I am male 32 years old.
fungal penile infection
Thanks for the query to HCM,
tHE TYPICAL DESCRIPTION of ,"a white thin layer which is slightly itchy and causes pain on the penis head with some soreness" indicates a fungal lesion and hence the best form of diagnosis shall be a swab culture test to confirm the diagnosis.
If fungal infection is confirmed, then you should be placed on antifungals like FLUCONAZOLE 30mg once a week for 3 weeks. Flucloxacillin was an antibiotic, it reduces the fungus but doesn't treat it. So please get a swab culture test done before starting any treatment.
