Re: Penis Fungus

You realize that fungus creams can take a month or more to work. It takes a while to kill the fungus. Without a culture, its not possible to be sure it is just a fungus. It could be bacterial as well. In which case a simple fungus cream won't do a complete job.

Another way to do the same thing is to apply 70% rubbing alcohol using a cotton ball (never use the 95% solution, it won't work). It will sting on the red parts, but alcohol will kill a fungus. It can take a few weeks to show progress but after that its usually pretty rapid.

Re: Penis Fungus

See a pharmacist. There are oral tablets that can be taken in conjunction with some creams. The combination should knock the infection on the head. Have you been tested for diabetes? Chronic thrush or similar infections under the foreskin can be due to diabetes. Cutting down on starch and sugars in the diet can also help treat this sort of condition even when not diabetic.
