Suggest treatment for redness on the penis

Hello, Ive recently seen that my penis head gone red and i thought about it was balanitis so i bought a cream Nystalocal for the treatment. Its the 7th day am using it and ive seen that my penis head has begun to peeling and in some spots it has turn white and it seems like its dehydrate. I mean it seems like the skin has been absorbed is that normal?

Hi,

These symptoms and signs are suggestive of STD especially if there is associated pain, fever, urethral discharge and recent sexual intercourse.

So this is the first thing to rule out by doing STD testing. Second, it may be a sign of urinary infection or urinary stones and some other genital infection but this is less common.

In every case, antibiotic therapy may be required so test should be done as soon as possible so that appropriate treatment can be started. Till that try to drink plenty of fluids, avoid sexual intercourse and rest.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Ivan R. Rommstein, General Surgeon
