Foreskin Condition

Pregunta del cliente:

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

Dra.DeboraPalma :

Thanks for using JA.

Dra.DeboraPalma :

With your description there are 2 possible diagnoses:

Dra.DeboraPalma :

1. You´re having a simple irritation-alergic reaction wich is causing all your sintoms.

Dra.DeboraPalma :

2. You´re developing a Phimosis, wich is that the foreskin tighten progressively.

Dra.DeboraPalma :

I recommend

Dra.DeboraPalma :

you visit an urologist as you said. But meanwhile you could

Dra.DeboraPalma :

apply a hydrocortisone cream twice a day for 10 days. So if it is just an irritation it will heal with this medication.

Customer:

I applied the cream treatment...but it never completely went away

Customer:

this is why I think its something more than just a minor irratation

Customer:

in the sense of its longetivity

Dra.DeboraPalma :

Did you already applied Hidrocortisone? Or just monistat?

Customer:

both...I forgot to add this part my apolgy

Dra.DeboraPalma :

Ok, then your right. It is very likely you´re developing a Phimosis. Don´t be worry it is not something serious or malignant.

Customer:

Great to hear this...now what is treatment for Phimosis?

Dra.DeboraPalma :

The only treatment is circumcision.

Dra.DeboraPalma :

This is a simple procedure, with very few complications.

Customer:

What?...no topical or antibotics for this?

Dra.DeboraPalma :

and that will bring you no impact in your sexual life.

Dra.DeboraPalma :

NO, sorry.

Dra.DeboraPalma :

It is not reversible.

Customer:

OK..I have my appointment today at 1:30pm with the Urologist.

Customer:

I'm prepared for the worst

Customer:

the knife..

Dra.DeboraPalma :

Excelent! Don´t worry so much. First lets wait the diagnoses that will give you the Urologist.

Dra.DeboraPalma :

And then if it is necessary the circumcision you´ll find it is not so big deal.

Customer:

ok...Thank you very much...Dr. at least I know the scenario...best and worst..

Dra.DeboraPalma :

Glad to help.

Customer:

once again thanks...have a nice day

Dra.DeboraPalma :

Thanks.

Dra.DeboraPalma :

Please don´t forget to assess my answers.

Customer:
