Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have been having some issues with my penis. At first, a month ago I thought I had balanitis and so I used Terrarisil balanitis cream but I have only used a few times and now I see that one of my veins got swollen and it feels like it aches a little. I do not know what to do with both these issues. Can I treat myself at home before it gets worse?

Answered by Dr. Rabia Anjum


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I would like to know your age, are you sexually active? To me it looks like Mondor disease, a condition in which veins get swollen for which there can be many reasons like penile injury, sexual activity, etc. The condition is treatable. You have to take oral antibiotic and pain killer along with antihistamine.

Probable diagnosis

Mondor disease.

Treatment plan

Tablet Co-Amoxiclav 1 gm BD for one week, tablet Ibuprofen or Aspirin for one week. Non-sedating antihistamine tablet.

Preventive measures

Maintain hygiene of the area, wash with soap and water.

Regarding follow up

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
