Recurrent Balanitis. Tried Clotrimazole and Miconazole. Symptoms persist and recur. Been 7 months now. Please advise.

Recurrent Balanitis. Tried Clotrimazole and Miconazole. Symptoms persist and recur. Been 7 months now. Please advise.

Maybe not yeast: Clotrimazole and miconazole treat yeast infections, but yeast doesn't cause all balanitis. You might have a bacterial infection or just a problem of moisture and hygiene. If all else fails, sometimes circumcision is required to prevent recurrent balanitis, especially if you also have phimosis (restriction that prevents foreskin retraction). See your doctor. ...Read more

I've been using Clotrimazole for 2 days to treat balanitis. It's creating a warm tingle and I've noticed more visible veins showing on my penis.

Need more info: I don't think that the clotrimazole is causing the warm tingle unless you are experiencing a mild allergic sign. I think it is time to consult with a dermatologist and make sure that you do indeed have a fungal infection. ...Read more

Is topical butenafine appropriate in the treatment of candidal balanitis or would it be too harsh and cause further irritation?

My 11 month old has ringworm, I have been treating it with lotrimin for about 5 days. How will I know the treatment is working? Signs of healing?

Drying centrally: "Ringworm" or Tinea Corporis is relatively common acquired fungal skin infection, is amenable to topical therapy with the lotrimin. Apply the cream at least two centimeters around the lesion for two weeks. Resolution of the infection will be apparent as the lesion no longer increases in size and shows drying centrally. Nummular Eczema can look like Ringworm but is treated differently. ...Read more

Should ringworm spots keep appearing even after treatment (Lotrimin (clotrimazole) Ultra) has been started for 5 days, or does it take awhile for it to take effect?

Ringworm: Ringworm can occasionally be resistant to treatment so you may need a different antifungal. Additionally, there is a common skin disorder that is often misdiagnosed as ringworm called pityriasis rosea which you may have. PR does not respond to topical antifungals but goes away on its own. It starts with one larger patch and then multiple smaller patches develop over a few weeks. ...Read more

Suffering from balanitis, was prescribed timodine cream but failed to cure the condition, penis glans are inflamed and very dry & shiny in appearance?

Castellani solution: If your pharmacy or chemist does not have it, they can make or obtain it. Get the clear, modified version. It will clear very quickly. Your product was worth a try but is not much good. Balanitis is due to tiny amount of URINE fermenting under your foreskin. Rinse off daily, best in a shower. Always blot or wash off the last drop of urine after you go. A circumcision will end the problem. ...Read more
