Suggest treatment for redness on penis

default
Posted on Tue, 2 Sep 2014
Question: For the last two months ive had to pee alot, and if i even drink a little i have to pee immediately. Im uncircumcised and have redness around the tip of my pee hole, and red areas on head that come and go. My penis stings a little sometimes but not when im peeing just before and after time to time. I have no discharge or weird colors coming out, and my urine doesnt stink but its dark and cloudy sometimes i barely drink water ever btw. And from time to time my balls feel a lil sore either one or both time to time. I was checked by a dermatologist that said my penis looked ok, and the redness maybe a yeast infection irritating my skin as moister is trapped in my foreskin. Im taking Nystatin they gave me, but the redness comes back sometimes. I masterbate alot and notice that the redness and pain usually show up soon after, not sure if theres a connection. But the yeast infection doesnt seem to really be doing anything. What else could it be? And by redness i mean a darker pink. Thanks. And should i masterbate less and drink more water or what? And i drink alot of redbulls everyday.

Also when i masterbate the area thats redish around the tip that looks a lil dry, it swells a lil then goes down later.

Another thing is my stomachs been bloated, been gasey farting. And constipated some days, and others it slides right out.

Brief Answer:
Please decrease masturbation and keep genitals dry

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing in to us.

I have read through your query in detail.
If your dermatologist has examined you and said it yeast infection then it must be. However treatment of genital yeast infections is more than medications. You must use Nystatin as prescribed by your doctor. Alongside you must decrease your masturbation to twice or three times a week. This will give time to heal. Also wash your genitals with warm water twice daily and wipe with dry towel. Wear cotton inner clothes to prevent moisture in the region.

Drinking lots of water will fill up your bladder fast and you may regulate your fluid intake to control frequent urination. An daily total fluid intake of 2000 ml is adequate for you.

Hope your query is answered.

Ok was just worried cause didnt know if the redness and redness n swelling after masterbation is something else, and if the burn pain was normal with no discharge. Bout to go to store to buy celery and garlic and cranberry juice heard that might help to. Thanks again, ill cut the masterbation out all together see if that helps n start drinking water n cut redbulls as my drinking source out.
Quick question im supposed to put nystatin on every 8 hours, but cause im uncircumcised after i pee theres pee trapped so have to wipe dry so how do i keep it on ya know

Your approach will help

Hi,

Its better to cut down on masturbation for a while. What happens is masturbation causes skin irritation due to friction and may not allow sufficient time to heal inspite of applying Nystatin.

Celery, garlic and cranberry juice can help in clearing your urinary passages should you have the mildest infection causing burning.

The best way to avoid pee getting trapped is to wipe the head of penis region with a small piece of tissue. This will help in keeping it dry.

Hope your query is answered.
