The Penis Is Swollen After A Yeast Infection?
I want to ask, 2 months ago I had a yeast infection all over the body including the penis, now it has healed but the penis on the neck and the bottom of the penis is swollen even though I don’t feel itchy or hurt at all, but when I tense it is a little uncomfortable (the neck of the penis so often cover the tip of the penis as if it had not been circumcised even though I was circumcised) already went to the doctor to try to give anti-fungal medication is not cured and given the drug hydrocortisone also does not heal too, why huh? thank you
Hello, Bambanggg, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Swelling of the penis can be caused by several possibilities:
Inflammation of the penis (balanitis) can be caused by bacterial infections, fungal infections, STDs (Sexually Transmitted Diseases), irritation (due to soap / certain substances that have been attached to the penis), allergies, injuries, autoimmune diseases, etc.
There is a lump / tumor
To determine the cause, must be examined directly by a doctor. The doctor will do a complete physical examination and supporting examination if necessary, for example analysis of fluid coming out of the penis, allergy tests, ultrasound.
Treatment depends on the cause. For now, if the complaint is very disturbing, or accompanied by symptoms such as itching, pain, discharge from the penis that is yellowish / greenish / blood, there are lumps, or swelling getting bigger, you should not wait to see a doctor. Do not use / apply drugs without a doctor's prescription. Keep your genitals clean, diligently clean with clean water every time you urinate, keep your genital area clean and dry, wear pants that absorb sweat and are not too tight. In addition, avoid using perfume soap. Avoid unsafe sex (such as changing sexual partners, not using condoms, etc.).
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
