Got white patch on glans penis without any other symptoms showed to dermatologist gave desonide lotion to apply BD for 2weeks?

Candidal balanitis: You've got a candidal (fungal) infection, most likely. Use a good athlete's foot or jock itch remedy, available over the counter. Coconut oil, or vinegar (acetic acid) are other effective home remedies. If you're sexually active, your partner's probably got the same problem, and should be treated with an anti-fungal prep. You may be passing it back and forth. ...Read more

Can silicon patches or sleeves help dekeratinize the penis glans? If not do you know what would?

Here are some...: I have never heard of the way to "dekeratinize" the skin of glans penis in my 46-year traditional urological study and practice although a lot of talk and hype on silicon patch has been going around for quite some time. In fact, skin keratinization is the normal protective response to physical stimulation over time, which occurs in palms and soles. Before proceeding with such, check out why you... ...Read more

I have a small red circumscribed patch on the glans of my penis for 3 weeks now. I had no pain, no blisters no itchiness and no generalized symptoms.

Red Patch on Penis: A red patch on the head of the penis can arise for several reasons. If you are not circumcised, this could be inflammation, called balanitis. 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

Red rashes on glans penis and inside foreskin. Red patches and itchy. I live in a hostel.

Balanitis, phimosis: This is due to a tiny amount of URINE trapped under the foreskin. Yeasts and smegma bacteria ferment the urine into irritating products. Circumcision is a quick and easy cure. Castellani solution is very effective. Always hold back the foreskin during urination and hold back for a minute after. After urinating rinse off or blot with a tissue. ...Read more
