What is the cause and treatment for infection in penis?

Hii, I have been suffering from some sort of skin allergy inside the fore-skin of my penis. I consulted a doc and he told its some skin allergy only, gave a single tab and one cream (name i forgot). The cream I am using for the past 2 months, whenever i stop it, i feel itching.. And i used to see some white creamy deposit inside the foreskin, even i am washing it thoroughly twice a day... can anyone tell what is the real problem..?? Who is the best best dermatologist in Bangalore (Koramangala-Marthahalli area)..??

Proper personal hygiene is the key to prevent such I infections. Always clean foreskin properly with soap and water, you can also apply topical antibiotics like mupirocin also. If symptoms appear repeatedly, it is better to go for circumcision. Consult a general surgeon and he will direct you accordingly.

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