I have been suffering from constant irritation, redness, located in the foreskin area. It has gotten worse in the last week or so. I thought it may have been yeast infection in this area. So I applied monistat it relieves it quickly but not permanently.. To the extent if I stretch the foreskin it cracks very painfully to include minor swelling
Thanks for using JA.
With your description there are 2 possible diagnoses:
1. You´re having a simple irritation-alergic reaction wich is causing all your sintoms.
2. You´re developing a Phimosis, wich is that the foreskin tighten progressively.
you visit an urologist as you said. But meanwhile you could
apply a hydrocortisone cream twice a day for 10 days. So if it is just an irritation it will heal with this medication.
I applied the cream treatment...but it never completely went away
this is why I think its something more than just a minor irratation
in the sense of its longetivity
Did you already applied Hidrocortisone? Or just monistat?
both...I forgot to add this part my apolgy
Ok, then your right. It is very likely you´re developing a Phimosis. Don´t be worry it is not something serious or malignant.
Great to hear this...now what is treatment for Phimosis?
The only treatment is circumcision.
This is a simple procedure, with very few complications.
What?...no topical or antibotics for this?
and that will bring you no impact in your sexual life.
It is not reversible.
OK..I have my appointment today at 1:30pm with the Urologist.
I'm prepared for the worst
Excelent! Don´t worry so much. First lets wait the diagnoses that will give you the Urologist.
And then if it is necessary the circumcision you´ll find it is not so big deal.
ok...Thank you very much...Dr. at least I know the scenario...best and worst..
Glad to help.
once again thanks...have a nice day
