Question: Sore foreskin

 enliven - Mon May 07, 2007 11:11 am

I am diabetic and am prone to thrush, i am male. Recently i have been treated with flucanazole which cleared up the majority. However after that i found it hard to pull my foreskin back, if i bathed it in aqueous cream it is normal. i have noticed when withdrawn the skin is cracked so was prescribed dactarin but it does not seem to have worked. Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated

User avatar It is possible to get a fungal infection of the foreskin, as well as other infections. I would recommend you see your doctor for a re-evaluation to make sure you are getting the proper treatment.

Best wishes.
