White patches on penis foreskin

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hello, so I have been having these scars on my penis foreskin for the last 6 months. They are developing very slowly, although I feel no pain. Sometime it feels a bit itchy but nothing serious. I think it might be some fungal infection so I have been using an antifungal cream for the last 3-4 days but I have not seen any improvement yet. Does anyone have some experience with similar symptoms and any idea what it might be? image

    Aron, what you need to focus on are the fundamentals:

    • you have had something going on for 6 months or so
    • using ANY cream relative to this time-span is going to have very little if any beneficial impact
    • are you regularly sexually active, such as receiving oral, and / or have penetrative vaginal and / or anal sex?

      .

      My fear is that you have a severe skin condition. So yes, I have had symptoms exactly the same as this. What you need is to see a Dermatologist. If you can book directly then go see one. If you need to be referred by your Regular / Family Doctor / GP - then make that appointment for as soon as you can.

      In addition, if you live in, or within travelling distance of a city that has a major Sexual Health Service, such as a GUM Clinic or a Walk-In Sexual Health Centre - then go along as you may be able to see a Dermatologist on your visit.

      The other thing they may do is actually refer you to a Dermatologist who specialises in Genital Skin Disorders - this would be the best specialist to deal with what you have.

      Be warned, if you see someone who simply says you need to get an appointment with a Genital Skin Disorders specialist via your own Doctor / GP you need to politely but assertively ask for the contact details of where the Genital Skin Disorders specialist is actually based - it could even be in the same hospital if you happen to go to a GUM / Sexual Health Clinic at a General Hospital.

      Please update once you have seen any Medical Professional ......

      Hello, thank you very much for your reply. During that time I have not been sexually active. However, i have been having a lot of sport, so i think sweat could be one of the causes even though I shower always after workouts. I will try to book a meeting with a Dermatologist asap. Btw can you tell why did you have this scars and what treatment did you use to cure them? Thank you.

      Are you talking about what you have on the skin on the shaft of your penis, or on the head / glans of your penis?

      My priority is for you to see whether you have a severe sin condition of the penis. A Dermatologist can confirm that one way or another.

      Once you have a diagnosis, or the Dermatologist directs you as to how to improve your penile skin I can support you in both understanding how the skin issues you have came about, what to do to ensure your penile skin is not damaged any further, and how to get the best out of any medication you have been given.

      However, at this moment in time I am unsure whether I will be available to respond in the next 2 to 3 months - so for you, get to see the Dermatologist and try the treatment regime that has been detailed to you.

      You can update your Forum Post here at anytime - but as I say, I may not even get to respond to the email alerts I get until about April onwards. That is, if you want a further response from me this may not happen until you have posted a Forum Update in April or afterwards, then, I can pick up on your email I would receive at that time .....
