Hello doctor,

I get red dots on my penis after masturbating or having sex. It becomes normal after applying Candid B cream and Fusidic acid on the penis. Again after having sex, the red dots, which are very small and sometimes they have a white center, are seen on the penis head. One more thing I would like to mention is, 2 to 3 months back after masturbating, my foreskin got swollen on the left side, but after 2 to 3 days, it became normal. I also took some antibiotics for 7 to 8 days, but these red dots are coming back. They come in a batch of 2 to 3, and if I do not apply any cream, then it keeps on increasing in number. Please help me.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have read your concern.

  • With your description, it seems you have developed candidal balanitis. Red dots, which you described, are known as satellite lesions.
  • I suggest you stop using Candid B (Clotrimazole and Betamethasone dipropionate), as it contains steroids. Do not use it more than five short courses to reduce inflammation.
  • I also suggest using Clotrimazole and Fusidic acid cream twice daily for one month, and tablet Fluconazole 150 mg once a week for four weeks, after consulting your GP or a nearby dermatologist.

Hello doctor,

Thank you for replying. I have already used Fluconazole 150 mg. Are Clotrimazole and Fusidic acid, a single cream or two different creams? The problem is the red dots disappear after treatment and come back after having sex or masturbating.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • These two creams are separate, mix both and make one fingertip unit (FTU), along with tablet Fluconazole. It does not matter if you have used it earlier.
