What is the treatment for itchiness in the foreskin of the penis?

respected sir/madam, I am a 25 yr old male who used to do sitz bath(sit in a tub of water) using diluted dettol for anal fissures. Today I started having itching on my prepucial skin on which I applied CONCENTRATED dettol after which 2-3 hours later I developed oedema of the prepuce but not to the level of obstructing venous return as of now . What should I do next to cure the problem?

Hello,

Please urgently visit a general surgeon/urologist for the opinion. you may develop phimosis and have to go for circumcision later in case the edema doesn't reaolve.

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

Take care

Regards,
Dr SHOBHIT KUMAR PRASAD, Psychiatrist
