Not helpful: The Ketoconazole Cream should be effective without vinegar. Acetic acid solutions can be used to unmask hpv induced skin changes prior to treatment, but should not be considered a skin treatment per se.

Complication-: Using a cream on your penis suggests the presence of a rash, ulcer or lesion. A fungal infection is unusual on the penis- uness diagnosed by a physician, it is highly recommeneded that you do this -the lesion may be syphilis or other infection that will surely get worse with an acid, and can increase you chances of getting HIV if engaging in unprotected sex.
