Hello and welcome to healthcaremagic
I am Dr. Kakkar. I have gone through your query. I would keep a possibility of Candidal balanitis.
I would suggest you to use an OTC topical antifungal e.g clotrimazole cream, twice daily for a week.
Single dose of an oral antifungal e.g fluconazole 150 mg is also curative.
Clotrimazole cream is OTC
Fluconazole is a prescription drug. You need to get a prescription for it from your local practitioner.
However, clotrimazole cream is available OTC and is equally effective. It is to be applied twice daily for a week
