Approximately 8 days ago I thought I recognised the symptoms of thrush on the penis head ..I had a few mildly red dots on the penis, tip of the penis slightly red and redness at the bottom of the penis head.
I went to the pharmacy and ordered canesten ..I applied this for a couple of days as it recommended however it caused burning and was extremely irritating. I therefore visited the doctor for a prescription alternative and was given dakacort …this not caused any side affects and I have been applying it as I should (twice a day) today is the 4th day.
But nothing has really happened. I think I may have mistaken thrush for dermatitis, I do not have any itching and no burning. I do not, and have not, had any abnormal discharge or burning whilst urinating in the urethra.
I have had thrush before, it’s a mild condition, and was dealt with very quickly through prescriptive cream. This time it has not been the case.
I am aware that thrush can be over-diagnosed and many continue treatment for thrush to discover that it was dermatitis. Does anyone have experience of this? I have a consultation with the doctor tomorrow.
*P.S …STD’s usually dominate the replies of any problems regarding problems with genital areas …my last sexual contact has sent me evidence of a full negative health screen test of STD’s
