Q.

rash on penis

Good morning Doc!

My 14 month old boy has what seems to be a rash on the left side of his balls, on the balls and on the tip of the penis. I''ve been using Fissant paste, as well as a cream that i got from the durbell pharmacy. Any advise on what this could be, and what remedy i could use for this?

Thanking you

This could be a candida rash. Try Nysatin Cream applied at least 3 times daily for 5 days. If the rash does not clear then try Bepanthen cream applied at each nappy change.
