Hi doctor,

I am suffering from an infection on my penis. I am using Clotrimazole cream over the infection. Once I miss applying cream a day, the penis gets infected with red patches, pus-filled boils and there is severe itching. My partner is not affected by any problem though we are sexually active. I am not diabetic when I saw my blood test. Kindly help me to cure it. I am frustrated with my problem. Kindly give me medical advice.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

I have gone through the images (attachment removed to protect patient identity). This looks like candidal balanitis. You can start taking tablet Zocon 100 mg (Fluconazole) once daily for 10 days and apply Ebernet cream (Eberconazole topical) twice daily for 10 days.

  • Clean the area only once during bathing.
  • Keep the area dry.
  • Avoid intercourse during this condition.
  • Follow up after fifteen days.
