Hello doctor,

I am a 40 year old male, and I have diabetes. From a week, I have pain in the penis, and a white tissue like layer is formed. What to do?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • It seems you have candidiasis. But to be sure, please send photos and details like your latest sugar levels. We can start treatment after that. Take care.

Thank you doctor,

My fasting sugar level is 160, and postprandial sugar level is 240. I have attached a picture.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • Your sugar levels are way too high. Please visit your consulting physician for the same. If the levels remain so high, then this problem will keep recurring, as it is directly related to diabetes.
  • I have seen the picture (attachment removed to protect patient identity), and it is candidiasis only. I suggest you apply Onabet (Sertaconazole) cream, twice a day over the problem areas for two weeks.
  • If the problem persists even when your sugar is under control, we may start oral medicines. At present, this cream should suffice. Follow-up after two weeks. Also, clean the area once during a bath, and not every time you go to the bathroom.
