Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Welcome to healthcaremagic.
I have read your query and understood your concern.

The most common reasons for cuts on penile area is fungal infection and viral infection.
I would like to know the following details :
1 ) what is the duration of the cuts ?
2) it the area itchy or associated with burning sensation?
3) any history of similar lesions before?
4 ) any history of preceding fluid filled lesions?
5) history of recent contact?
6) how about your diabetic status?
7) are the cuts diffuse or localized?
Kindly reply to my questions and if possible put a pic so that I can help you to my best.
Regards

Hello dear,
Welcome again.

You will need a written prescription to get the medications. Its not a life threatening condition. Dont worry so much.

Both are easily manageable conditions.
Its jusz that the diagnosis need to be made before one can advice you further management.
Therefore, I advice you to put a pic or show to some doctor in person for inspection of the area.

Both are sexually transmitted disease spread by contact . Kissing can also spread the infection.
Stay healthy.

Good day. I have noticed a strongish smell after urinating. The pharmacist said its either a fungal or bacterial infection. Diflucan was suggested, but that would only sort out a fungal infection not a bacterial?? i had been on antibiotics a while ago and my life is very stressful right now due to my mother being ill. In the past I would use Diflucan after antibiotics to get rid of the candida which antibiotics cause. NOw there is only a smell of the urine but no actual discharge.

I have a dermatology issue. The skin on my fingers crack. I live in Maine and have suffered from chap fingers all my life. But now it seems to affect my thumbs. During the year, when my hands are clear. A calous will appear. And the skin will peal, and the layers of skin will continue till they eventually bleed. Right now both thumbs are affected. I thought it might be a fungal infection. It could be a contact alegy? The only relief I get is by using tape. Help?
