Since last 4 days, the foreskin of my penis won t retract & bleeds when pulled down & also there are white odorless depositions on the glans penis ( the same as when I was detected with diabetes). Also in the past 6 months I have been a heavy smoker & approximately 2 pegs of alcohol per day on an average. Exercise is practically NIL. Do I increase the dose of my medication.Please help.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Metformin may be doubled / Medication should only be increased by your physician.

You are probably having balano-posthitis and/or Prepucial stenosis - examination by Urologist is the ideal solution for present management and prevention of recurrence in the future.

Idle life style / Smoking / Alcohol - are all major risk factors for heart attack and stroke for anybody - especially diabetic. Take care... Stop immediately, completely and permanently.

Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
