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.

I m 15 almost 16 and the underside of my penis has too much skin. I m circumcised and I think the doctor did it wrong or something. When I m soft the underside skin can stretch far past the head of my penis. Even when I m erect it s still there and it is wrinkly and disgusting. Its attached to the head of my penis and even if I try to pull it down my penis head bends down with it and if I pull any harder it hurts. It s almost like I m circumcised but all the skin is under my penis now. I m a virgin and I m scared to let anyone see it. It works fine though and I don t have any other problems. Please help
