Hello. Thank you for writing to us
I am Dr.kakkar(dermatologist). I have trad your question and i have noted your concern
you seem to have candidal/yeast infection.
I would appreciate if you can upload an image in "Reports Section"
Also let me know whether do have diabetes? Are you sexually active? Does your partner complain of vaginal dischrge and pruritus?
Are you sexually active? Not extremely. But to some extent yes. I do masturbate once a week though apx.
Does your partner complain of vaginal dischrge and pruritus? No.
Also I am not sure if I have diabetes though. But when I met my primary physician last year I was not having diabetes.
Will this be good to use?
I have reviewed the Images. I can see redness with some macerated white scaling. I would keep a possibility of Candidal balanitis.
I suggest an Oral antifungal e.g single dose of fluconazole tablet 150 mg. Topically you may use an antifungal cream e.g clotrimazole 1% cream+ hydrocortisone 0.025% cream (Canesten-HC cream).
These are prescription medications and I suggest that you talk to your doctor for the neeful.
clotrimazole 1% and hydrocortisone 1% cream
No. This is not sufficient. This cream is just a plain steroid i.e hydrocortisone whereas I suggested you to use a combination of clotrimazole 1% (antifungal) and hydrocortisone 1% cream.
