It sounds like it could either be balanitis, which is a fungal infection, or a bacterial infection, and needs an antibiotic. You could try an antifungal cream, or go to the doctor.
I have no idea why you can't see the doctor, but if its because you are married, share a doctor, etc., you could always go to an std clinic and self pay and it won't show up on insurance.
Neither of these would be sexually transmitted, so it would probably be ok to see your regular doctor.
what is an anti fungal cream that i could use? do i need a special one or would a general fungal cream be alright? also would this be classified external or internal use?
I can't advise you about that, not knowing for sure what it is. I'm not a doctor, so I can't make that diagnosis, and I can't advise you if you haven't gotten a diagnosis.
ok well it ends out i have phimosis "the inability to retract the foreskin from the glands" and it was caused by a chemical exposure eg.soap or conditioner in this case....
it is apparently a symptom of balanitis so what would you recommend? also is this a prescription thing or can i just go to any pharmacy and get a anti-fungal cream for it?
How did you find that out?
And I can't advise on that - its not an std, so I don't know if I'd be giving you the right info. You should post in urology or men's health.
i found it out from all over the internet and it sounds like i have phimosis.
i think il post in the urology forum but thank you anyway
