Hello doctor,

I have red spots on my penis and it is very itchy in nature. Now, there is a rash-like thing on my penis. Currently, I am using Candid B cream. Please help me.



Welcome to

Please provide the below details to arrive at a definitive diagnosis and to suggest a proper treatment plan.

  • Could you be more specific on the type of the lesion? When and how did it start initially?
  • Are you married? If yes, then does your partner suffer from any white discharge?
  • Are you a diabetic?
  • If possible, please post a few clear images of the present condition, so as to have visual confirmation of your symptoms.

Thank you doctor,

 I am married and my wife does not have any problem. I am diabetic and am taking Glimstar M1 forte. I am uploading the images.



Welcome back to

  • From the pictures (attachment removed to protect patient identity), it can be seen that there is a few radial fissures and redness surrounding the fissures. This is most commonly seen in diabetics.
  • Nothing to worry about. I am suggesting you a few medications. Consult a specialized doctor, discuss with him or her and take the medicines with consent.

Investigations to be done:

1. Fasting blood sugar.
2. Postprandial blood sugar.
3. HbA1c

Probable diagnosis:

Candidal balanoposthitis.

Treatment plan:

1) Tablet Syscan (Fluconazole) 150 mg, one tablet per week for four weeks.
2) Daktarin gel (Miconazole) for external use twice daily.
3) Tablet Vozet (Levocetirizine) 5 mg, daily one tablet at bedtime for 10 days.

Preventive measures:

1) Avoid use of excessive soaps for cleaning and use lukewarm water to clean.
2) Avoid intercourse for a few days until the present condition comes down.
3) Control blood glucose levels.

Regarding follow up:
