Penile Fungal Infection possibility?
My symptoms are itching behind penis head under skin, no lesions, no bumps or anything excessive. Well this has been going on for well over six months now. It seems to get better when I don't eat certain foods. I've been on antibiotics before as the result of a bladder infection & was put on three different kinds of antibiotics & they are; Bactrim,Cipro & Zithromax. I have been checked for STI's & test were negative as well as the exam below, If their is an all natural treatmeant other than big pharma, I would sure love to hear it. Btw, I take probiotics everyday & usually eat natural plain white yogurt like once a week. As well as meds, I only take a One A Day men's multivitamin, iodine supplement (liquid kelp) & Omega Red daily. If anybody has some answers, please get back to me ASAP.

Hello,
I cannot confirm without examination but the symptoms that you are having are due to balanitis of the penis.It is an inflammation of the glans penis.

Oral course of antibiotics is needed. In addition, don’t use any cosmetics on the penis, instead use some topical antimicrobials like Bacitracin or Lotrimin. Also corticosteroids and topical immunosuppressants can be used but they are available under prescription. Also retract the foreskin daily and soak in warm water to clean penis and foreskin. In case the symptoms persist then consult a urologist/dermatologist for evaluation and antimicrobials and steroids prescription.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
