Hi doctor,

I have been itching on my tip of the penis, which also becomes red due to itch. Is it safe to apply any antifungal cream on the tip of the penis? Please suggest some good antifungal cream.

Hi,

Welcome to Icliniq.com. 

I have read your query in detail and do understand your concern.


The Probable causes:

This could be due to fungal infection or due to dermatitis.

Treatment plan:

You may safely apply antifungal cream over this lesion. I suggest Sertaconazole cream, an antifungal cream, which can be applied over this infection. Consult your doctor, discuss with him or her and apply with consent.

Regarding follow up:
