Sound like a burn: Your symptoms are suggestive of a burn, or sunburn, as in a 1st degree burn, where you have redness and blisters but no true deep skin damage.

Penis skin cracked and peeled badly on glans and under leaving paler skin painful sensitivity to anything biospy no lichen sclerous psoriasis etc help?

Penis skin cracked and peeled badly on glans and under leaving paler skin painful sensitivity to anything biospy no lichen sclerous psoriasis etc help?

Try...: Great; chronic protracted benign skin conditions and skin cancer are ruled out with biopsy, now, it's logical to handle with keeping the affected area from further chemical and physical irritations if any, applying thin 1% Hydrocortisone cream daily x 7 days and see. If it's related with long foreskin, do circumcision. Detial? See doc timely. But it's hard to make DX without a direct look at it. ...Read more

Prob unrelated: Your candidal vaginitis should not be chronic unless you have some immune deficiency (including diabetes, systemic steroid use, antibiotics, and so on). Try treating this with oral antifungals through one menstrual cycle and applying an antifungal topical preparation to your sexual partner's penis during the same time periods. For the others, see a dermatologist. ...Read more

Blisters on heels ripped off, skin raw. Been using antibiotic ointment but "new" skin is yellow & has pus. Red around edges. Infected? Urgent care?

Blisters on heels ripped off, skin raw. Been using antibiotic ointment but "new" skin is yellow & has pus. Red around edges. Infected?  Urgent care?

As long as it's open: & not anymore than an uncovered blister, it will heal. Keep it clean, wash (scrub) it 3-4 times a day. That will get the crud off the top, may not feel good but unroofing it is good. Then if available to you cover with Silvadine cream, if not an antibiotic ointment. You want to keep it clean & not let it crust over. Keeping it covered with a band aid will keep it moist. ...Read more
