Foreskin dryness
I am married for 6 years and having a kid. My foreskin (of penis) has become very dry and reddish and the skin comes out in powder form (like dandruff). No itching but feeling irritated and uncomfortable. Facing this problem from last 3 months after an yeast infection. Had consulted family physician and have undergone the antibiotic + cortico cream treatment. But problem still persists. Haven't had sex from last two months due to this problem and fear of any further consequences. Quite depressed due to this problem as I have never ever had any such problems until this. Pleases help/advise.
