What is the cure for my husband's problems?
Q: I want to ask a question about my husband who is having some kind of infection on his penis. There was dryness three months ago and it still lasts. He has used some medicines but not got relief. The doctors asked him to wash it every time after he passes urine so he does so but in vain. He still has the same dryness, rather is drier than before and itches too. I would like to tell one more thing that my husband is taking Carbamazepine 200 mg four times a day as he had some neurology problem. Initially, he used to take Gabapentin but stopped it as it was causing erection problem. But, inspite of stopping it, he has difficulty in penetrating. He is 49 years old. I want a solution to his problems?
