Take this as an educational piece of advice and a warning:
Throughout my sexual career I have always been careful. I have never had bareback sex and always screen potential partners. If I see odd colours/spots on a private area, I will stay away from it. I always prided myself on my cleanness.
Recently, I started noticing something odd going on with my penis. It started to itch. I applied Canesten as I thought it might be thrush. I recently came out the hospital and was on a lot of anti-biotics so this proved common. Within a few weeks, I noticed more symptoms. Everytime I masturbated, my penis skin would flake and crack. There would be this odd 'white substance that would rest on my penis'. I put this down to dryness. I started applying different creames to sort it out. I used fungal creams as I thought it might be a fungal infection and so did my doctor. If you were to look at it, you would see nothing wrong. I have just noticed an increased amount of wrinkles on the foreskin.
This seemed to clear up the white substance that would rest on my penis. I noticed my private area was also producing an aggressive amount of smegma. I switched creams to Clotimizole with no luck. I then started using Fucidin H cream that was perscribed for my foot. Low and behold, this actually cleared it up. It had a steriod in it. Although the results did not last long.. I then used Dictarin cream which had no result. Using the medication is better than not, but after begining masturbating for a short time, my penis will just aggressively start flaking.
Fast forward to now, after a sexual encounter my entire penis will flake. Today, I am completely giving up on the creams and ending my sexual adventures and punting career. The thing is, I never did bareback sex, but I did always did Oral without. I do not know where I got it from, but i have a hunch it was thailand. If I use Lube on it then it won't flake, it just is red raw.
A very weird thing about this entire scenario, is the flaking shows itself under a light only and sun light. It also doesn't even flake under a dark light. If it was a candle-lit room you wouldn't see it. In my room the lightbulb is darker than normal light bulbs, so i usually do not see it.This has proved to be extremely stressful when having high hopes that it was possibly cured. Although anywhere else, I will see the white flaking. This has been going on for the past 3 months now. I've lost hope that it is curable. I have scheduled a visit to the GUM clinic and cancelled my high anticipated trip to Thailand.
I have the impression my regular doctor just doesn't know what is going on. I do not think medicine/knowledge has come far in regards to penis problems. My female doctor just seemed embarrassed while looking at it and trying to diagnose it.
Yeah I could just use condoms and get on with it.... but this isn't curing the problem. Unfortunately, sti clinics seemed to be closed till mid-jan where I am from, so i will have to wait till then although my hopes of them knowing what it is is low.
I understand i describe just symptoms, which makes the thing scary.
