I asked a question just the other day regarding my red penis, also at the start I had some blister like bumps which did not break open or become a sore
I have attached some more photos for you. Do u think it could be Candididasis
Thank you in advance

Hi Lou,

I see very little to be concerned about. On the tip of your penis I notice a little inflammation and that could be fungal related, so if that concerns you, you could try anti-fungal cream like clotrimazole or even hydrocortisone to reduce the redness. The mild redness on the shaft should be expected in the warmer months because you're sweating a whole lot more and depending on your bathing habits, you might notice skin changes on your penis. As always if this truly concerns you, please consider seeing your primary care provider.

Best wishes,


Sexually Transmitted Diseases
