Hello doctor,

I think I got balanitis. Which cream should I buy? I had sex five weeks ago without protection. Painful peeing lasts for two years but not as strong as this time. Sores came out after having unprotected sex.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

First of all, you need to get blood tests for sexually transmitted diseases like VDRL (venereal disease research laboratory), HIV and HSV (herpes simplex virus), as the act may cause herpes simplex or syphilis. I would start with a combination of antibiotics like Doxycycline and antiviral pills like Valacyclovir. However, in your place, you need to get in touch with your general physician to undergo the necessary tests.

Ointments alone will not be sufficient for treatment. A combination of Acyclovir ointment and Fucidin H cream (Hydrocortisone and Fusidic acid) as a thin layer may be applied for three days. Meanwhile, get in touch with your general physician. Avoid sexual activity until the ulcer is treated. Syphilis and HIV test to be repeated after three months.
