I've had this for around 4 months, tried most over the counter things but no help. Just getting worse. I have not been to a dermatologist yet but am currently trying clobetrasol. I have it in my mouth and on the arches of my feet. My mouth doesn't hurt, but my feet itch sometimes. I'm mostly worried about clearing it up on the glans of my penis. Any help is very appreciated. Thank you.

    I waited too long to se a Detmatologist and now I have it everywhere. Go now and get on prednisone for a short while. It truly helps. Itch is gone and it's starting to clear up. I have taken it for two weeks now.

    I luckily don't have it in my mouth as of yet, thankfully. I do have it on my ankles and on my penis. It started for me I believe from a reaction to antibiotics about 4mo ago. My Dr. put me on topical steroids, which seemed to do the trick after about a month. Now though it has come back, but not quite as bad as before. The topical steroids are Triamcinolone Acetone 0.1% for my ankles and hydrocortisone cream 2.5%. The Triamcinolone works better but shouldn't be use on your genitals, hydrocortisone for that. I will have to starthe again applying to hopefully get fluid of this for good. Fingers crossed. Good luck

    I think you should see a dermatologist ASAP. Get into  medication routine. Follow as much discussions as you can to predict how it can manifest and change your life. This may be a bit stressfull at first but foresight will prepare you to handle and tackle all the ups and downs. I think the LP on your glans penis might just subside with application of a prescribed steroid. You will be left with a black spot over time which may or may not be sensitive. Just in case the  dermatologist forgets to mention - Dont dob the creme thinking it will heal faster. apply a very thin film. Thats a layman's advice.
