I have been having lots and lots of sex with my girlfriend, about 2 months ago my penis became red and irritated, it felt like it was burning and the only relief i could get was by dipping it in cold water! This went on for a week so i went to a GUM clinic, the guy said i could have thrush or eczema and gave me thrush cream with hydrocortizone. This irritated like ***l so stopped using it. I have seen two more doctors who said it was an eczema like skin problem and another who said it was friction burns from too much rough sex...anyway, in desperation i went back to GUM and he gave me thrush cream without hydrocortizone, i put it on for over a week and it improved slkightly...it was still red so he told me to use the hydrocortizone again.....this does not seem to be working!! I cant go to work, ive been off for 5 weeks, I have been tested for STDs except herpes, i dont think ive got that as i havent slept around, neither has my girlfriend (not for 12 years anway) She has no symptoms what so ever...what could it be?

  • It sounds like nothing more than chafing, and putting all that medicine on might be making the problem worse.

  • Doctors usually give cortizone for wounds and it's the worst you can do for skin. It causes wounds! You need a nurse specialising in wounds. Try first to find a specialist in veins, they often know such a nurse, as people get serious eczema on their legs due to bad circulation. My 78 year old mom has been having severe eczema and is now cured at last, thanks to a wound nurse.You will then probably need to keep the penis lightly bandaged for a week or more (and not wash it) with safe creams under the bandage that such a nurse will give you. Cortizone is only a last resort for people who are dying. This is not an alternative view, any decent wound nurse will tell you.To start with, try plenty of pure aqueous cream mixed only with a little camphor oil (ask a pharmacy) and bandage it, once round the balls to keep it in place. This is also to keep out infection. It will take quite a while to settle (feeling worse first) but eventually this worked for large wounds on my mom's legs.Once you can move around again, keep up the bandaging and light camphor cream, for a week or more. The bandage only needs to be replaced every 3-4 days or longer, if it stays dry and if not too uncomfortable. Let the cream be the only moisture. Good luck.

  • The trouble is heat makes it worse, if i war trousers all day it gets very irritated, apparantly, the GUM doctor i am seeing is supposed to be very good and i think the hydrocortizone may be helping now. The only problem is that it leaves my penis very dry after use...but i think its helping...how can i stop the dryness??

  • It is dry because the skin dies. Once the dry flakes fall of you end up with wounds again, courtesy of the cortizone, that only seems to help, meanwhile making things worse. Here is South Africa we had a heatwave while my mom had to endure bandaged legs with camphor cream under it. We didn't think this would work, but it did, as the nurse said. Before that is was wounds, cortizone, large flakes peeling off, worse wounds again - for over a year. So please find a wound nurse, who has seen this before and has had success with it. You need to arrive at healthy skin.

  • triple anti-biotic. over the counter, and wont dry you out. its for skin irritations...or some external vagisil could work. it is for women but you can pretty much figure it wont dry out in that case. give it shot, oooo some of that stuff even has cooling agents in it! good luck

  • Hard to believe that a guy has pus and sores and wants advice online....well...the first poster, dude, you've been tested for everything except herpes. What's holding you back??? Go for it so you'll know. It doesn't matter what the woman has told you, she may not know or have any symptoms.
