Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

From your description, it can be balanitis but to rule out herpes genitalis please send a good quality image and revert back. Is it associated with itching or burning sensation or pain? If sexually active does your partner suffer from a similar complaint?

Thank you doctor,

Yes, I have too much itching, burning sensation or pain as well. And yes, my wife faces the same problem after intercourse. Please help me out of this and suggest me what oral medicines and cream I can use and please advise medicines for my wife as well.

I have uploaded images of inner skin of the penis and head part as well.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

It is balanoposthitis. If you are not allergic to oral medications then start tablet Fluconazole 150 mg one tablet thrice a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) for four weeks, Levocetirizine 10 mg at bedtime for five to seven days. Apply DK gel (Miconazole 2%) twice a day, T-Bact cream twice a day.

Your wife can also take the same treatment if she is not pregnant. Revert back after two weeks and area involved should be washed with lukewarm water. Do not use soap or hot water.
