Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am experiencing a rash on my penis head and itching under the scrotum. The rash seems to get worse after sex or masturbation. Kindly help.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read your query and can understand your concern.

The symptoms could be due to balanitis caused by friction and rubbing or possible candidal balanoposthitis. I suggest you follow the below instructions:

  1. Apply Clotrimazole cream (Candid cream) twice daily in the morning and night for 14 days.
  2. Apply Hydrocortisone cream in the evening for seven days.
  3. Wash the area with Episoft cleanser (Cetaryl alcohol) daily for one month.
  4. Tablet Teczine-M (Levocetirizine 5mg and Montelukast 10mg) once at night after food for seven days.
  5. Avoid scratching and rubbing of lesions.
  6. Avoid friction.
  7. Wear loose comfortable thin cotton innerswears.
  8. Avoid sex if it triggers it.
  9. Maintain proper genital hygiene.
  10. Keep checking on sugar levels.
  11. Get a urine routine and urine culture test done.

Follow up with reports.

I hope this helps.

Thank you and take care.
