Tip of penis stings when contacted by clothing, slight redness
Try a steroid ointment or cream.
Hello, I'm Dr. Branch, thanks for using Ask a Doctor. Just from what you've said so far makes me think this may be a contact or atopic dermatitis, and these skin conditions usually respond to a steroid cream like hydrocortisone. This would be a different cream from the anti-fungal creams that are used for athlete's foot. Sometimes a strong, prescription strength cream is needed, so if you don't see any improvement in a week you may need to see a doctor to get a prescription.
But otherwise, I just want to make sure it couldn't be anything else. Do you have any burning or irritation with urinating? Have you masturbated at all recently or had any contact with something out of the ordinary? Any discharge from your penis at all?
Ok, my recommendations would stay the same then, I would try the hydrocortisone cream, and if after a week it is not better, you should have a doctor take a look at it to confirm what kind of rash it is, and prescribe a stronger topical steroid medication if needed.
Let me know if you think of any other questions, I'd be glad to help. Thank you for your question and take care.
Or should I continue with hydrocortizone? I started it yesterday.
Thank you so much for the help
Yes the Triamcinolone would be stronger than the hydrocortisone so you could use that instead. You should see improvement within a couple of days, if there’s no improvement in a week I would stop and have a doctor check it out.
You probably need a urine test.
You've already tried all the topical medications that you could try, so the next step would be to get a urine test to look for any inflammation in your urethra. This could be caused by bacteria that is resistant to the amoxicillin that you took earlier.
I would start with a walk-in clnic.
A walk-in clinic should be a good place to start, they can examine you and are able to check your urine and hopefully find some clues to what is causing this. Only after seeing them and still not getting any cure would I consider seeing a urologist.
