Chafing on Penis Shaft
avatar
tnguy1 posted:
I have skin chafing on the top of my penis shaft near the base and have tried all sorts of over the counter meds, including petroleum jelly, to clear this up. It seems as though a fungal cream helped the best. I stopped using is once it started to clear up and now the skin is cracked and dry again. It really burned this morning when I got in the shower. Any suggestions? I have an apointment with my female dematolgist next week for another reason and may have to work up my nerves to get her to check it.

It sounds like it may be a fungal infection or yeast infection. You could try the fungal cream again and use it for a bit longer after it has cleared up. I think showing it to your dermatologist would be very wise.
