Okay so recently my boyfriend has been going through some pretty annoying crap with his penis. We never had a problem before but now...well...here are some symptoms:
He first suffered from an extreme itch with lots of red spots on the head (that's inside the skin...the crown...he's uncut), it was even a bit bumpy...like the red spots were everywhere. He went to the doc and she prescribed Canesten Topical Cream (which is a Anti-fungul cream of some kind...contains Clotrimazole 1%)it's commonly used. She told him it was a rash. She didn't specify exactly from what. She said it could have been yeast or a reaction to a condom...or...squat basically. She didn't give him a clear picture..just said rash...possibly from this or that. There are definately some medical terms for this...she just made things that much harder because we like to research things and...with a proper diagnoses we could have been over this by now.
Anyways, he used the cream....as much as he could...sometimes he wouldn't use it as regularly as it said (like not to the tee). She said to put it on twice a day for 2 weeks but sometimes he skipped one application and put it on the next day because after a while it got better and he could go a full day without the itching. So, it gradually started to disappear...but then recently this red bloch/spot he kept talking about came out on the tip of the foreskin on the outside...
So yeah... After he felt clear maybe we shoulda waited a bit more? I'm thinking it may possibly be a condom reaction...although there wasn't a problem before...we're a fresh couple so the previous times were fine..but maybe something developed after? Possibly with a new brand of condom? Cause tonight he's really worried because it's so visible. It was okay earlier but it's being bitchy tonight. We used condoms today to be safe. We used some random one he got and a Kimono one. So it could be the condom...it could be foreplay...who knows...
I did some research and concluded that it may possibly be Balanitis..a lot of the symptoms were similar. So any comments and opinions? Cause the most of the itching and red spots on the head went away but now there's this red blotch/dot mofo that's freaking him out. We're thinking of getting new condoms possibly latex free and lubing up the inside so there's less friction/irritation. But if there is a solution...how can he better prepare for this in the future so it doesn't re-occur?
P.S. Any natural remedies?
Thanks!! :wink: :grin:
