Fungal infection of the penis foreskin

what are the consequences of using forcan 150 mg tablets for a extended period of time? I was told by the doctor to take 2 tabs (morning and night) a day , for 5 days. I continued the dosage for another week. Want to continue the dosage for one more week to heal the fungal infection on my Penis foreskin . I am unable to pull down the foreskin due to the infection. After the dosage the infection seemed to have subsided. However, I still can t pull the foreskin down. Apart from the tablets the doc had also suggested an ointment candid B, which i am still using.

Hello!
Don't use forcan more than the prescribed dose. Taking it more is not going to solve the problem.
Inability to retract foreskin is due to phimosis (resulting from inflammatory fibrosis of foreskin).
It may need surgical correction(circumcision). Continue applying the ointment candid B and consult
Urologist.
Bye bye.

First i tried with Betnovate n cream. intially it was pk but after first week the infection came back. Then I consulted a skin doctor.He priscribed Elica M cream to apply after the bath and then Mycoheal cream (Miconzole notrate) for two times a day and also priscribed Candivast 50mg capsule(Fluconazole) 1 per day. Now I find the infection has increased a bit. Doctor can you suggest best medicine for the penis fungal infection?.

For Urologists:



Like two weeks ago I was experimenting some pain when having sex with my girlfriend, I didn't put attention, as the pain was soft, well, actually the pain was when trying to penetrate her the first time, after that all was good. WE had sex this week, last Tuesday to be sure and the pain was stronger. In the night when I was in the shower I noticed that the top of the foreskin was a little red and swollen (The pennis was erectus at that time) and I try to pull back the foreskin and I felt pain, then I looked a detail and I saw some little cuts on the top of the foreskin, they were minimal, almost visible, I washed whole pennis and when the water was falling it actually hurst even more, like any other cut on the body. I searched and searched the web to found a reason before to go to doctor and my conclusion it was that I have some kind of phimosis, I don't know why, this had never happened to me before. Now the pennis is fine, actually I try to avoid any erection on the day, which is almost impossible but I saw that the cuts gone, but I'm worry that when having sex again they appear. Any advice to know if I will heal quickly, or I have to do something else? Is this serious?

Thanks,

I have a purple ring around the glans of my penis. I am uncircumcised and my foreskin has been tight in the past, however I am able to pull it all the way back with no trouble now and have been regularly keeping the hood clean. Any ideas as to what this may be? The purple ring is a little tender, no sign of a fungal infection. I have read that using Bepanthen Cream for Nappy rash may help.

Hi there Dr. Kakkar, I have asked you a question before about pumps on my penis. I went to see a local doctor and he confirmed your diagnosis and prescribed a cream which took care of the bumps within 10 days. Thanks you very much for that....
