What causes peeling skin on penis shaft?
Thanks for your query and an elucidate history.
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 with metrogyl orally for 5 to 7 days should help you to get a cure. You can get your Blood Sugar checked.
Go for STD test panel
Thanks for your query.
You have noted that you has sex 3 weeks ago- and your history is having the problem '' just now'' noticed...
Do you mean to say you had sex with two partners and that was unprotected?
You can post a good quality photograph attached to this question, we have this facility.
This is balanoposthitis. If you had unprotected sex, you can certainly ask your laboratory to run the STDs test panel.
Complete the course of an antibiotic with metronidazole. Consult the Venerologist if you do not get relief.
tests and treatment for gonorrhea
Thanks for your feedback and a photograph.
There is a discharge coming out of the urethra ans indicative of gonorrhea.
You have to visit a Doctor to get a Prescription based antibiotic and tests for gonorrhea.
If it is possible and plausible your both partners should also get tested and treated accordingly.
This disease in the photo has nothing to do whether you are circumscribed or not.
Even one unprotected sexual interaction is sufficient to get the Sexually transmitted disease/s.
The rash is called balanitis.
It may take about 2 weeks for the burning to settle, so do not much worry about burning after a proper antibiotic treatment under a Doctor's guidance and prescription. A visit to CDC is worthwhile as they have the most recent knowledge about the best treatment available at the moment; the sensitivity and resistance to a particular antibiotic in your area.
You can have a cure with the proper treatment and should use protection next and every time.
