What causes irritation and burning sensation in the foreskin of the penis?
Please guide me through proper medication and treatment
Candidal infection. oral and topical antifungal
Hello. Thank you for writing to us
You seem to have candidal/ yeast infection i.e candidal balanoposthitis.
I suggest you to take Cap. Sporonox 100mg twice daily for a week. Topically you may use candid- B cream twice daily.
Thankyou for providing a prompt response
Request if you can check all the uploaded reports and prescriptions as I am taking medications since a year and presume that may be some doctor would have prescribed similar medications as you did
This would make things more clear towards the future treatment
I am using Panderm Cream at the moment which gives temporary relief
Need more information
I have reviewed the attachments. You have been treated for candidal balanoposthitis earlier on multiple occasions
I suggest you to stop using panderm cream, as it is a potent steroid cream and on long term use it can cause skin thinning, redness, burning sensation can also cause recurrences of candidal balanitis.
Do you also have any visible redness or sores?If yes kindly upload an Image of the affected area Or do you only experience burning sensation?without any rash.
Earlier if you can see in the attachments I was treated for UTI and Prostatitis aswell may be wrongly by the doctor.
This was mainly due the fact that sometimes I feel an urgency to urinate but not very frequently.
I had visited 2 dermatologists also whose prescriptions are uploaded earlier but as per them aswell there was not any visible infection on the penis
Please check the images and advise on probable cause, treatment and type of disease.
Please hel as this is getting very depressing and critical for me as the problem is not getting cured
veruse of steroids and probably psycological
In my view the probable cause is indiscriminate use of steroids i.e panderm and may be psychological since there seems to be no visible skin lesion
I suggest yopu to discontinue panderm and take a tablet of XXXXXXX M 75mg twice daily for 2 weeks.
Should I use Candid B cream for relief from irritation and burning or some other ointment . Also is Spronox 1oo capsules as suggested by you earlier is also to be taken along with XXXXXXX M 75 mg.
What is actually the disease and why it is not getting diagnosed?
You should use all medicines as suggested
yes you may use all these medications.
Though the symptoms seem to suggest that you could be having a candidal infection i.e balanitis but the symptoms seem out of proportion to the skin involvement (or lack of skin involvement) and therefore this could also be related to anxiety, hence I am also treating you symptomatically for that.
