Detailed Answer:
Hi

I understand your concern regarding your skin problem and I hope I am able to help you in the same.
It is very unlikely that you should develop any problems because of copper t inserted in your partner .
So I would like to have a look at the exact skin condition.
Please click some close up pictures of the affected area and upload them here on this page.
Also please tell is there any associated pain or itching or discomfort?
What all are you applying over it .
Have you noticed any whitish discharge or any fluid filled vesicles ?
I am sure I will be able to help you better once you provide me the pictures along with the above details.

Brief Answer:
Fungal infection

Detailed Answer:
Hi again


I have seen the attached pictures .
You seem to have developed a fungal infection of the area called candidiasis.
Please check if your partner also has any whitish discharge or itching .
You need to keep the affected area clean and dry . Apply a topical antifungal cream like clotrimazole over the affected area twice daily . You might a course of oral antifungals if the lesion tends to persist or increase.
Since you are also developing urine symptoms ,so you might have developed urethritis as well .
Drink lots of fluids .
In case there is painful urination ,you might need to get a urine analysis done along with a course of oral antibiotics.
Also get your blood glucose levels checked once since such infections are common during periods of increased sugars .
