Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Your concern may be balanoposthitis.
  1. Apply Aloederm gel (Aloe vera and Glycerine) first on the washed and dried affected area.
  2. Apply Efficort cream (Hydrocortisone) 0.127 %. Use it until the redness subsides.
  3. Apply Eberwin (Eberconazole) 1 % cream at bedtime.

Continue it for 30 days even if there is an improvement. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start using the medicines with their consent.

This will help you.

Thank you doctor,

I recently started using a different soap. This problem started after I changed my soap. Should I discontinue using the soap? What soap should I use instead?

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • Discontinue the soap. Instead, use a cleanser like Cetaphil, Episoft or Nosoap. They do not contain any chemicals. So, no lather will be noticed while using the cleansers.
  • Revert in 15 days if there is no improvement after starting the medication.
