Hi there does hydrocositrone 5% cream treat soreness & pain & burning on penis & under foreskin of balanitis?

Wrong treatment: Balanitis is due to tiny amount of urine fermenting under foreskin. Rinse under the skin with tap water twice a day. Remember to blot away that last drop of urine after you pee. Castellani solution is best remedy. Circumcision is cuative.

My penis is still sore from masturbation last week it DOESN'T hurt when I pee but I feel sore any natural remedies, creams that might help it calm?

My penis is still sore from masturbation last week it DOESN'T hurt when I pee but I feel sore any natural remedies, creams that might help it calm?

Common problem: Hi Jose, Great question! I'm sure this has happened to about 90% of males. Your penis needs some rest. Don't masturbate for a few days and it will be fine again. All the stimulation and friction on the skin and vessels that make up the penis are just sore. I would say just use vaseline sparingly to the penile skin once a day. Normal moisturizers won't really help.

I hava a red spot next to my urethra. Doctor gave me daktarin and cream, didn't work. Dermatologist said it was eczema, cream didn't work either, help?

I hava a red spot next to my urethra. Doctor gave me daktarin and cream, didn't work. Dermatologist said it was eczema, cream didn't work either, help?

Workup?: Daktarin is an antifungal cream, so we can assume that your doctor thought it was a yeast or fungus. You didn't say what sort of cream the dermatologist gave you. Did anyone suggest any testing, such as a KOH prep, or a biopsy? If two different treatments have not worked, it is time for some testing.

Can you get infected with a cold sore for using someone else's cold sore cream?

Can you get infected with a cold sore for using someone else's cold sore cream?

Low risk, but...: Such ointments have preservatives that probably would kill the virus and prevent transmission. However, you still should never share such a product with another person, to prevent not only herpes, but also colds, influenza, etc. Why take the chance? Better safe than sorry! However, if you also have oral herpes yourself, you can't catch it again; you are immune to new infection with same HSV type.

Concerning: The sore you speak of may be concerning for syphilis. Since we can't go back in time and view this sore, the best way would be to get tested by your doc. Thanks for using Health Tap!

How fast will the cold sore respond to the cream?

How fast will the cold sore respond to the cream?

Don't use creams!: I'm not a fan at all of creams for cold sores. Which is herpes by the way. My favorite treatment is Valtrex (valacyclovir) (a type of acyclovir). 2000mg twice a day for just one day will make it go away. Don't wast your money on the topical garbage.

Cold sore: Cold sore sore is caused by virus. Micinazole is an antifungal cream, it won't work in cold sore. You can try Zovirax, it's over the counter.

It's okay to use the cream I use to treat eczema on a cold sore right?

It's okay to use the cream I use to treat eczema on a cold sore right?

Cold sore: No, probably not a good idea! Cold sores are often caused by herpes virus, and eczema creams are usually some type of topical steroid. A steroid may exacerbate the cold sore. Best to leave it alone, let it dry up and crust.
