Sexually Transmitted Diseases/Pink spots on penis



Long story short, I've been battling candida infection in my gut for a while now, and a few months ago these spots would show up when I ate something high in sugar, but they would go away. Now it's been a few weeks and they haven't gone away. Any idea what it is? Or applied monistat thinking it was a yeast infection on there, but it did not work at all.

Ok John,

First of all, Monistat was specifically formulated for the female anatomy not males so Clotrimazole for men would be much better. Ask your pharmacist for more information, but with that said, the "pink spot" does not concern me all that much because it would be more scaly than that if it were a fungal infection, but I would consult with your physician to get a more accurate diagnosis.

Best wishes,
