A fungal rash is rx with Clotrimazole cream or spray. An allergic rash to hydrocortisone. Herpes and warts look different. ...Read more

Exterior penis skin. Skin at base shaft has a red patch, was told it's fungal. I also have some dry skin and spots. How can I improve the condition?

Fungal cream: If this is really 'fungal' — it should respond to an anti-fungal cream. Something like clotrimazole 1% twice a day for a week would be worth trying. Fungus in the groin region LOVES moisture — so try keeping it as dry as possible. Baby powder, a fan, wearing a towel — those are things that might help. If no relief with antifungal cream, go back to the doc and make sure this isn't an STD. Take care ...Read more

Dry skin on penis with pink bumps. What is this and is have been here for about three months?

Dry skin on penis with pink bumps. What is this and is have been here for about three months?

Eczema vs warts.: This could be a common condition such as eczema but I am concerned when you say "pink bumps". I would rather you have a dermatologist look at this in order to ensure that if these are warts, you can have them easily treated. Warts in the genital region can easily spread through sexual contact and it is best to have them treated and abstain from sexual intercourse until they are completely gone. ...Read more
