Genetal shafing
Aug 27, 2001

Doc, while i went to the washroom. I notice that the shaft of my penis was kind of white and I started to rub it and it started to shaf. I try rubbing it all off and now I have little cuts on my shaft and is quite painful. what is it? Thanks Enigma

Response from Dr. Feinberg

It sounds like you may have a fungal infection on the genital skin. If so, this can be treated with an antifungal cream, either over-the-counter or prescrition strength.

Stage 3; Help!
