Will clotrimazole 2% cream clear up tight foreskin soreness & redness tight foreskin due to thrush?

Mycolog II: I prefer nystatin with triamcinolone cream to treat the fungal infection and the inflammation. It usually works. If not, a circumcision may be needed. Also, if you are not diabetic, you should be checked for that unless the fungal infection was brought about by antibiotics. ...Read more

Not likely: You may have phimosis. Need exam by a DR with knowledge about this area, best will be a dermatologist. This may be related to small amounts of urine fermenting under the foreskin. There are other possible explanations. Always retract the skin in the shower and while passing urine. Blot after urinating. Try miconazole (or other azole) cream.

My 9 yr old son started complaining of itching to his penis area. He did say he noticed he had some redness to his foreskin only. What cream is good?

Could be normal.: Jessica - in an uncircumcised boy, around the age of 10, the foreskin can start separating from the head of the penis (normal) and there can be some redness or irritation that goes away on its own. Before putting any extra creams or ointments on, make sure he's practicing good hygiene (cleans in shower beneath foreskin and dries well), and if present >1 week, should get checked out. ...Read more

Here are some. ..: If good topical hygiene + light use of anti-fungal with steroid cream 1-2 times daily for 3-5 days fail to improve or still recur, see urologist and consider circumcision as definite care of choice.

Keep getting redness and swelling on foreskin and tip of penis that comes and goes! What could this be? And is it serious?

Balanoposthitis: Balanoposthitis is the inflammatory condition you have described. It can be caused by untreated fungal/monilial infections. Topical anti-fungal creams may help. Circumcision may also be a direct way to eliminate this infection cycle involving the foreskin. Seek an opinion and examination with your urologist to determine the best course of action. ...Read more

Get checked/Urologis: A urologist is a specialist who can best help you as you may need circumcision once the pain and inflammation subsides. Right now this area needs to be cleaned properly before it will heal.
Wash it with warm water and gently pull back the skin back till all the white material collected under the skin (smegma) has been washed off. Repeat twice daily. ...Read more

My baby is 10 months old and yesterday he developed somewhat of a swelling on his foreskin and a bit of redness on his penis.

It happens: Sometimes they can trap body secretions called smegma under the folds of tissue & that can attract skin germs. Gently pulling back the foreskin & cleaning the area will resolve the issue in some instances. If it persists or is difficult to expose have him seen. ...Read more

Itchiness and redness on my forehead and foreskin of penis. What is this? What can I do about it? Should I apply anything? Penis pic. As profile

Red Patch on Penis: A red patch on the head of the penis can arise for several reasons. When uncircumcised inflammation, called balanitis, is most common. Hygeine/steroid creams help. If you have started any new meds, it could be a fixed drug eruption. Stopping the meds helps, but it is a harmless event.
If it is growing in size and doesn't respond to the above in a week or two, I recommend a urological evaluation. ...Read more

My 7 mnth old son's penis tip smells bad. No rash, no fever, no redness or discharge. Wht could it be? His doc pulled back foreskin to check. I m worried

Probably normal: If your doctor checked it and it looked normal, then it most likely is normal. There is a normal cheesy substance, called smegma, under the foreskin and that is probably what you are smelling. Don't forcefully pull the skin back if the penis is not circumcised. That will lead to pain, swelling and infection. ...Read more

After intercourse, I found a crack under the foreskin, at the joint of glans and foreskin. It was with blood and pain. There was also redness of glans. Is this due to some skin disease?

After intercourse, I found a crack under the foreskin, at the joint of glans and foreskin. It was with blood and pain. There was also redness of glans. Is this due to some skin disease?

Skin issue: If none of what your described was present before the intercourse and appeared after, I would think that the intercourse caused it. I don't think of any sexually transmitted disease if you discovered it right after the intercourse. It sounds like an intercourse related trauma. ...Read more

Had protected sex & have balanitus after putting hand sanitizer on my penis in sept. No blisters. Red spots on head, red Corona/foreskin. Risk of hsv?

Probably not herpes: Herpes doesn't cause this sort of problem, especially when it lasts several months. This sounds like garden variety fungal (yeast) or nonspecific balanitis, very common in uncircumcised men. Probably not caused by hand sanitizer, even if that was just before the problem started. Retract foreskin and wash 2x daily w/ soap & water. See a dermatologist if it continues after that. ...Read more
