Hello doctor,

I am 52. I noticed my glans penis has some measles-like red spots all over. Overall, the glans penis seem reddish and slightly inflamed. A light irritation is felt.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have noted your concern and viewed the image (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • You seem to have a yeast infection called candidal balanitis.
  • I suggest you use a topical antifungal cream such as Clotrimazole 1 % and Beclomethasone dipropionate 0.05 % combination (Candid-B cream or Clotrin-B cream), twice daily.
  • In addition, I suggest you take an oral antifungal like tablet Fluconazole 150 mg once a day for three days. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start taking the medicines with their consent.

Regards.
