Hey guys. Having some irritation/itching in the penis. No sex, so sure it's yeast infection. Have Daktacort cream, is that likely to help?

Yes, if it's yeast. If it is a yeast infection, daktacort will help. The other causes of itchiness could be a new soap, detergent, lotion, etc. Try using unscented products for clothes and skin, along with the cream. If no better in a week to 10 days, see your doc. Also hot water makes dry skin and itching worse.
