Hi doctor,

I am 22 years old. I saw some eruption on my penis head for the first time yesterday. The color of the eruption is white. They are localized at very small area. I have attached the photos for your reference.



Welcome to

  • Any recent sexual exposure? What is the complaint in them?
  • Please send good quality photographs taken in natural light.

Hi doctor,

Day before yesterday my hands were not clean and I did masturbation. Yesterday I saw the eruptions, which I have attached in the photo. I am not sexually active. I do only masturbation. I am not a hygienic person and I used to bath only once in a week. I do not have any problem in walking, but when I touch the eruption I feel some pain.



Welcome back to

  • I would like to suggest you the following medications and get a review in 10 days.
  • Tablet AF 150 (Apo-Fluconazole) one daily for 10 days.
  • Candid lotion (Clotrimazole), apply it twice daily after cleaning the lesion with gauge and water.
  • Maintain proper hygiene. Wash your glans daily, otherwise it is a very recurrent condition.
  • One more thing poor hygiene has strong association with penile cancer. If it occurred then you have to get it surgically removed so prevention is always better than cure.
