19, male, and I recently recovered from thrush. Past few days under my foreskin has been itchy only when I don't shower. What could be the problem?

Regular cleansing...: What you observed and reported strongly suggested you need to keep up regular gentle cleansing and drying your foreskin, which should be pulled down after each hygiene maintenance, if not, paraphimosis may develop. If having recurrent issues in keeping up foreskin care, circumcision would be the choice of long-term care. More? Welcome to contact www/HealthTap. Com/dr-Lin with RQPWJC to login. ...Read more

My foreskin has become very tight. I am taking a cream to clear up thrush. Will this also resolve my tight foreskin?

Yeast infection: If the tigntness of the foreskin is due to swelling of the head of the penis as a result of the inflammation from the yeast infection this may be helped with the antifungal cream. If, however, the swelling is due to a reaction to the cream you may have to stop it. If something else is going on the cream will not help and you will need to see a urologist. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Can herpes cause balanitis for over 3 weeks? I tested negative for all stds and wa s just wondering. Maybe I have a yeast infection from my girlfriend b/c she had thrush with no pain. I've noticed that I had a redness around forskin like ring shaped

Can herpes cause balanitis for over 3 weeks? I tested negative for all stds and wa s just wondering. Maybe I have a yeast infection from my girlfriend b/c she had thrush with no pain. I've noticed that I had a redness around forskin like ring shaped

Not herpes: No herpes outbreak is likely to last 3 weeks, it's an uncommon cause of balanitis. If herpes were the cause, it would be in the form of open sores, generally very painful. Yeast indeed can cause balanitis. Maybe share your gf's anti-yeast cream (or buy clotrimazole cream over the counter). Also retract foreskin and wash w/ soap and water 2-3 times a day. See a doctor if these don't help. ...Read more
