I've been fighting diaper rash on the head of my penis for a while. Tried A&D and Boudreaux's Butt Paste. Bought some Balmex at the doctor's recommendation and I'm trying that now. It might be better. I also have a tube of Desidin (sp?) ready to go if Balmex is not the answer.
If you are leaking a lot (as I am), one train of thought is to NOT decrease your fluid intake. If you decrease your fluid intake, your urine becomes more concentrated, and more acidic and therefore possibly more irritating to your skin. I had a light rash for something like weeks 1, 2, & 3. Then I was OK for weeks 4 & 5. Then, maybe my internal swelling went down (just guessing) and I started leaking more, probably drinking less, and I have been battling the worst rash (for me) during weeks 6 & 7.
Just my unofficial thoughts & experience.
March 2006: PSA 2.5
Dec 2007: PSA taken for insurance application. I did not see the results until late Jan '08 - after I was rejected. Their lab said PSA 4.5. PSA again in Feb '08: 3.7.
March 2008: Biopsy. Gleason 7 (4+3) 12 cores taken. 5 on the left side were cancerous and the 6th did not look good.
May 5, 2008: Da Vinci robotic laparoscopy at GW Hospital, Washington DC.
Post op: Gleason 9 (4+5). 15% of prostate involved. Negative margins. Lymph nodes and associated glands all appear to be cancer free.
