sorry for poor spelling. The image of neck not the best. Penis very concerning. It has itched for about 7 days then today swelled as seen. Not painful at this time. Please advise. Brief Answer:
Candidal balanitis; Oral and topical antifungal

Detailed Answer:
Thank you

I have viewed the images. You seem to have a fungal infection of penis.

Topically you may use clotrinazole (lotrimin/ lotriderm cream), twice daily for a week. If this doesnot work then I suggest you to take an oral antifingal e.g fluconazole 150mg once daily for 3 days. This may have side effects there fore a prescription for the medicine is needed.
