Symptoms: Small cuts under the penis, during the day is every painful and cant walk properly. Also white mucus/puss builds up. always very wet with blood/oil
Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query to ATD for an opinion,This appears to scrotal fulminant candidiasis which has formed cuts and oozing blood. It must be accompanied with itching and pain. The scrotal skin must have shriveled and hardened. The friction produced by walking can cause pain. The presence of pus indicates that lesions have got infected as well. So it may require concomitant anti fungal and antibiotic treatment.I would suggest you to send a picture of the lesion for a better opinion and confirmation of diagnosis.Wishing you good health,Regards

Doctor: this seems more like post shaving sores and cellulitis with bacterial infection. This needs antibiotic course with amoxycillin. Please show yourself tp PCP and get them prescribed.
Patient: is there anyway not to see a doctor eg over the counter. as i dont feel comfortable going to a doctor to discuss my issue face to face
Doctor: If amoxycillin is available as an otc in your country then you can take cap amoxyclav 625 MG TWICE A DAY for 5 days, but i think you have to get it prescribed by your PCP. Its infected and antibiotics shall be required.
