Hi there ~

I understand your concerns and it is not easy to live with a diagnosis of fungus on penis. I am glad that you are taking the appropriate treatment currently. Light treatment is not the solution for fungal infection. I believe that you might have been prescribed fluconazole for candidiasis and this is likely to help. I believe that visiting with a dermatologist that can take a history and do a physical examination of the area and prescribe medications after necessary laboratory testing will be helpful.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
