What causes itchy foreskin with ulcers?
Thanks for your query.
This looks to be a problem called balanoposthitis.
I hope you have a single sex partner.
The effective treatment is as follows:
Clean the area with plain water 2 to 4 times a day and and keep it dry with a pure cotton cloth or a dryer.
you may apply liquid Povidone Iodine locally or a Metronidazole cream- nothing else at all. We have seen no results with any other solution, cream or ointment. So do not try anything else; if you are using any, please stop it.
A course of antibiotic (another one as this is not helping you) with metrogyl orally for 5 to 7 days should help you to get a cure. You can get your Blood Sugar checked.
If you are married and have wife or a partner, she should also receive the same treatment.
No sex or masturbation till you are absolutely fine.
Fasting urine sample is 1%
PP urine sample is 2%
Could it be the reason for my foreskin problem. Am I diabetic, please let me know your comments
We see many patients wherein the first symptoms of diabetes is balanoposthitis.
You are diabetic and have to have a perfect Medical treatment for the cure of balanoposthitis.
Yes, this is the reason for your problem.
Get treatment started under the care of a Physician or Diabetologist.
You were admitted in 2009 and 2012- were the sugars normal that time?
Control your stress- that will help control of diabetes.
Have a combination of treatment
Family history of diabetes in parents is a contributory factor.
You have to take treatment of diabetes, please follow the advise of your treating Doctor strictly.
Antibiotics given by the Dermatologist will not cause sugars to increase. I hope you were not given steroids.
Non-veg food does not increase sugar.
Sweets will increase sugar only if you are a diabetic.
Alcohol has varies effects on sugar levels.
Please do not worry too much about diet and all; most important is proper medical treatment, and a combination of diet and exercises.
And balanoposthitis at the moment.
Have a combination of treatment and everything will be fine. Please accept that you are a diabetic and take proper treatment.
