Sir how can cure all this

Brief Answer:
Fungal infection

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query.

If possible please upload the photos of the affected area.

The dark coloration of your glans can be due to a mild fungal infection.
The deposition on hairs in your groin region also suggest fungal infection.
I treat such cases with topical clotrimazole cream.
It gives excellent response in a month.
Once infection is controlled you can use a mild steroid cream like cortisone.
This will take care of pigmentation.

Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.

Brief Answer:
Clotrimazole followed by cortisone

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the follow up and photograph.
It is looking like fungal infection.
Apply clotrimazole cream daily for a month directly on glans as well as groin area.
After one month you can use cortisone cream.
Both the creams can be applied directly over glans.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you

My husband has been on Lipitor and Avalide to control his cholesterol and blood pressure. We have been trying to conceive for three years. His sperm analysis last year was pretty bad, with low counts and poor morphology. I keep hearing that it could be his medications that are causing the problem, but I can't find any information online. His physician refuses to consider the possibility. Can the problem lie with his blood pressure and/or cholesterol medicine? If so, are they any safe medicine that he can take while we are trying to conceive?
