Please, provide a photo image for this!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about what you are experiencing. I will like to have a picture of this rash to factor it into my response.

However, with a urethral discharge from the penis when defecating, I will suggest that you get a urethral smear testing for possible infections. This my prove helpful.

Hope to hear from you and get the image before adding more weight to this.

Brief Answer:
Probably fungal

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this follow up precision.

With this rash responding to clotrimazole ointment, it is probably caused by fungi. For how long did you use this cream before stopping? The duration may not have been appropriate to correctly and completely treat the infection.

let me hear from you.

Brief Answer:
See below!

Detailed Answer:
I think the duration of use of this cream is okay. If it didn't work, then probably it may not be the best indicated or it was not a fungal infection. Another reason could be that you recontaminate yourself after or during treatment. Were you sexually active during treatment? Did you take extra measures to disinfect your under wears during this time?

I have reviewed the image. To be honest, I cannot make a call on what this is as the rash is not very visible on the images. I would rather not guess on this.

How severe are your symptoms? Do you have itches all the times? Keeping the area always clean, dry and moisture free would be very helpful

Let me know what your thought are.

I wasn't sexually active during the treatment duration and also i have not had sex ever since i realized it.I think my personal hygiene is fine.it does itch especially when the infection is returning.The skin on my penis becomes so dry,red and then it peels off gradually is also very itchy.Also i thought maybe the reason why it kept recurring was because i had no medicinal intake and the cream couldn't do the work alone.What do you make of it.Thank you hope to hear from you soon.

Brief Answer:
Thanks for following up!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this follow up precision.

I am happy to hear that your hygiene is great.

These symptoms still sound very suggestive of possible fungal infection. Superficial fungal infection on the penis does not generally require oral drugs intake. If your dresses are not washed and disinfected totally, this may constitute a constant source or re-contamination. Please, consider doing so if not already done.

I will suggest that you change the cream to miconazole and let's see what the result would be. If it recurs, then it may not be fungal infection and require a complete examination by a physician in the neighborhood.

I hope this helps. Feel free to ask for more clarifications if need be.
