Hi doctor,

I am a 40 year male. Since last one month, I have been suffering from irritation of foreskin. The skin has become tight and cannot be pulled back. There has been a whitish discharge from the penis and constant irritation. I have tried using Candid B cream but there has been no improvement. There has been a little pain around the penis head. I am not a diabetic and there are no other ailments. I have a problem of high BP and have been prescribed Eritel 40 mg. Please advise.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

It is very common for people with diabetes so keep checking your blood sugar level and keep it in control. Keep using Canesten lotion twice daily, and if not controlled by it then you may need to take oral medication also.
