Hi, I have had this same infection several times before. It starts as an itch on the head and shaft of my penis. Then the sking begins to crack, causing extreme pain. Eventually, the cracks subside, and the skin seems to dry up and flake off. It will get better, then start all over. I have been to the dr several times and they say its a yeast infection and have given me bactrim pills and triamcinolone acetonide cream. Neither of these have gotten rid of it. I got tested for all STDs, so I know it's not that. What else could it be? The itching caused by this condition is almost unbearable. The white patches in the pictures is dry skin thats flaking
