A patient contacted icliniq.com with complaints of an infection on the glans and shaft of the penis. He had observed red patches and irritation in the area from 18 to 20 days.
He was keen to know how long it would take to completely recover and also requested for a suggestion on medicines and creams to be used based on the clinical picture he had attached. The doctor, after enquiring with the patient regarding other presenting symptoms and his sexual status, ruled out certain possible causes and zeroed in on candidal balanoposthitis as the possible cause.
The doctor then suggested an effective antifungal treatment for him as well as tips to follow. The patient, after strictly following the therapy as well as personal hygiene guidelines provided by the doctor, followed up after a week with the news of a significant improvement in his condition.
