Smile red itch patch on the head of my penis

Hi, For the last 5 days i have this red itch patch on the left side of my penis head now the skin is coming off and as well as it has a layer of fluid under the ledge. I'm cleaning it with dettole and applying Flogosid and betnovate ointment. Can anybody suggest me what it is? I'm not having unprotected sex.

Re: red itch patch on the head of my penis

It is not a good idea to use chemicals on your penis without a doctor's advice. If the skin is coming off your penis head, you should stop using Dettol, Flogocid and, in particular, Betnovate. Betnovate should not be used for longer than five days and it should not be used for fungal infections.

If you are uncircumcised, the original "red itch patch" could be a fungal infection or maybe balanitis or something else. However, it is impossible to diagnose the condition without examination. You should consult a doctor.

In the meantime, stop applying Dettol, Flogocid and Betnovate. Wash your penis head several times a day with clean water.
