White patches on Penis

    
Asked by louise111 (Male; 25; Clean Bill of Health; Relevant drugs:Monistat anti-fungal cream ) on Thu 16, Apr 2009 05:22pm

I have three white patches on the head of my penis. They are right next to the opening of the penis, with one very tiny one off a little further. They are less than one cm in diameter. As well, the skin in the area that connects the foreskin to the penis on the underside is very dry and has cracked and turned white. The white area is most prominent running from the opening of the penis down about a centimeter. It does not hurt and it does not itch. Currently I am putting anti-fungal cream on it. I just started this two days ago and so far it has not seemed to have any effect. Possibly it made it more noticeable however. I had blood work done and nothing came back. I thought it may be a yeast infection, however they have been on the head of my penis for six months or longer. Only recently they have been more noticeable. Please advise, I am very anxious

Hi louise111. A white patch with no other associated symptoms in penile area goes with major diagnosis as vitiligo involving genital area. This condition is associated with chalky white patches with no itching or any other complaints. These are due to autoimmune process which destroys melanocytes; as a result hypo pigmentation occurs. As such there is no specific treatment for underlying cause, but white patches can be treated by various methods like exposure to sunlight, long-term exposure to UV rays, applying corticosteroids, & immunomodulators etc,. There is no need to panic. I advice you to have consultation with dermatologist. Hope my advice helpful to you. Take care.
