Why do I have red itchy papules on the penis tip?

Q: I am a 28 years old man having redness of glans and prepucial inner surface with few small reddish papules. It initially was associated with swelling of prepuce, which subsided with neosporin ointment. I still have redness, papules and experience burning sensation. I have physical contact with my wife only and she also has a history of white discharge and feels burning sensation after intercourse. What can be the cause of this?

A:Both you and your partner seem to have infection by the fungus candida. However, a proper examination is required to rule out disorders like nonspecific blanoposthitis. Both of you should be treated simultaneously.
