Could my Doc be Wrong???
Jan 7, 2002


Recently i found that i had redness on my penis head. When i went to the doctor to enquire abt STD, he said its most likely to be fungal infection. I have not heard of any guys getting that. Could my doctor be wrong? The cream he gave me did get rid of the redness in abt 3 days.


Response from Dr. Feinberg

Your doc was right. Fungal skin infections are common, and certainly happen to HIV-s.
