hi
normal white material is smegma.
its due to natural secretion of penis
it can be easily wash away.
what u have is candidial infection.
so dont ignore it
apply clotrimazole cream twice a day.
keep area dry and clean.
get your sugar check first.
we need to rule out diabetics.

Dear Dr. I am a a diabetic. recently I took to single needle acupuncture treatment. Initially results were good with weight loss of over 10 kilos but continuing to be active. But for the last few months I notice my lips corners tearing my sides of penis tearing and mouth of anus also. Then a new problem has started. Severe itching on the front head if the penis from inside and white discharge after itching coming out. The worsr part is the foreskin not rolling back and swollen and painful. I tried rolling back and washing with the help of xylocaine but once sedation effect is over it pains a lot. The foreskin has become even enlarged. Can I do without circumcision? How much does it cost for circumcision? Kindly advise. Thanks Kumar

Hello Doc I normally find. Sugars. Ants clustering within my toilet bowl after some time I urinated; please what could be the sign of it?? I eat well balanced diet regularly; more of semolina with my native soup which comprises of chicken, ginger, garlic, chilli pepper and some other spices. I eat less of white bread, white rice and more of fruits. I drink more of red wine and cranberry juice, and water. I exercise by jogging and walking on. Saturdays mostly 4 an hour. I used to to smoke often but stopped recently but do take a stick or 2 randomly like 1 in a week or in 2 weeks. I used to overweight as well but been able to loosed 9-10kg with the help of green tea plus exercise and dieting. I used to regularly take a cup of black tea daily without sugar or milk but stopped as I discovered that its been over stressing my bladder and causing me constant urinarination and pains above my penis area directly below my navel. So with all these I don t know what could be the reason of seeing ants around my toilet bowl; tho this occurs when I fail to flush it and come back to reuse it. Patiently waiting for your advise. Thank You Doctor Warm Regards, Felix

I have a rash in my left armpit only. Little itch. My doctor prescribed and I used a tube of ketocamozole. After six weeks I returned to the doctor. He then prescribed, which I took, a four day course of ketocamozole. Each time the rash greatly improved but did not quite go away. Same response when I use OTC anti-fungal, lotrimin.The rash is almost non-existent, but flares up when I perspire. Always there.Should I try a steroid of some type?

I was diagnosed lat week wtih a fungal ear infection. I am on clotrimazole drops. The ear canal is much better but ENT doctor said there is fungus on my eardrum, which is causing me some pain but mostly loss of hearing. It sounds like I am under water or in a tin can. How long do you think this may take to resolve?
