Fungal infection on Penis
Hello sir, earlier i am suffering from Fungal infection on penis and i used FourDerm cream to get rid of this infection and it work within few days. But the problem is that it leaves 2-3 spots on it and one red spot was bigger than other. Are they healing? Or how much time it will take to get back the normal skin?

Hi ! Fungal infection tends to affect folds of the skin, moist areas like groins, armpits, mouth, genitals, under the breasts, webs between fingers and toes, etc. Our skin protects us from fungal/yeast attack, but any cut or break in the continuity of the skin can allow penetration of fungus. It gives rise to rash, eruptions, redness, burning, intolerable itching and abnormal discharges at times. Fungal infection tends to last for many years if not treated well. It is also contagious.

Avoid steroid containing creams like Zole F etc. application of steroid containing creams Betnovate etc just suppresses it on surface but it grows beneath the skin and spreads everywhere and also becomes more resistant.
