Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

It looks like from three days, I am suffering from genital candidiasis. Around the head of the penis, there is irritation and soreness, itchiness and white patches on the skin. I have tried applying coconut oil and eating yogurt for two days. I feel it has reduced. Could you please suggest any cream or pill or next step?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Relax and do not worry. If possible, send me images. Regarding candidiasis, I suggest you apply Candid-B (Clotrimazole and Beclometasone) cream twice daily on affected areas.

Patient's Query

Thank you doctor,

I have attached the pictures. I am unable to find Candid-B here where I stay. Could you please suggest any other?


Welcome back to icliniq.com.

I have seen images (attachment removed to protect the patient's identity). It is a fungal infection. You can use Lotrimin AF (Clotrimazole) cream. It will be available where you stay. Or, you can order online any cream containing Clotrimazole. Do not apply soap or oil. Just clean with plain water.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
