Hello doctor,

I had unprotected sex two days ago, and there are three clustered red areas on the bottom of my shaft. They only slightly itchy, and the skin there is dried. I have heavily researched herpes, and I do not think this is it. Anything else it could be?

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

It is not herpes for sure. Can be a mild case of tinea, a superficial fungal infection or just related to friction.

Use the following medications for a week then follow back. Kindly consult your doctor to make the decision and take the treatment with consent.

1. Clotrimazole plus Beclomethasone cream apply twice a day.

2. Tablet Fexofenadine 180 mg once at night.

3. Capsule Itraconazole 100 mg twice a day.

Thank you doctor,

How do I get prescribed those medications? Or can I pick those up?

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

I think the first two are available over-the-counter. For third you need a prescription.
