Red penis and swollen foreskin
Can anyone give me advice? A few weeks back I found a small patch of red skin on the tip of my penis. I smeared some antiseptic cream on it but it didn't do much and after a week the whole head of my penis was covered in red patches (they weren't sore) but it really itched so I ended up constantly scratching my crotch.
I did some research and ended up with the conclusion that I had a yeast / fungal infection and I bought some cream (Canesten) from the chemist. This temporality cleared the red patches up but now my foreskin feels as though it has become puffy and swollen at its tip (although it doesnít look it). This is not a problem when I'm soft, but when I become erect I am unable to pull my foreskin back over the entire head of my penis before the little flap of skin at the back of the head feels like it being stretched to it limit. Masturbation is uncomfortable and sex is out of the question. The red patches are also starting to reappear, as is the itch.
I realise that my next step should be going to the doctor but wanted to know if anyone else had had a similar experience, what they thought was causing it and how to get rid of it.
