Category: Dermatology
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
I laid down for 5 min checked again that mark is gone no whiteness not even a mark on the skin where it was
Expert:  khagihara replied 12 months ago.

It is strange. Did you touch the whitehead?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
it did not hurt
Expert:  khagihara replied 12 months ago.

Did you try to remove it?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
I did not play with it much .. In the fear of popping it and not being able to show my doctor. I just ran my finger over it and pushed it.
Expert:  khagihara replied 12 months ago.

It could be debris. Have you had it before?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
In a different spot I did white liquid came out
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
4 weeks ago but I was using a lot of lotromin
Expert:  khagihara replied 12 months ago.

If it is fungal infection, the area should be red. I don't think it is fungal infection. It could be just debris. It is not likely the inside suddenly popped up. You don't need to worry about it.

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
It does get red in the area at times
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
Could this be herpes
Expert:  khagihara replied 12 months ago.

It doesn't look herpes. If it was a blister, it could become an ulcer and then crust. But you should have pain. Since it gets red, it could be debris from fungal infection.

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
I do get pain here an there but never seen anything crust over or scab up or discharge yellow liquid.
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
The pain is a more burning pain not itchy pain like a rash
Expert:  khagihara replied 12 months ago.

Fungal infection also causes burning pain.

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
What should I put on it? It's been two months of pain
Expert:  khagihara replied 12 months ago.

You already used lotromin. It could be fungus resistant to lotromin or something else. I recommend you see a dermatologist to take a sample and have a skin biopsy.

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
I have been frustrated not getting any answers with solutions been to a couple docs.. I just don't know where to go from here
Expert:  khagihara replied 12 months ago.

Did they take a sample and have a skin biopsy?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
No they said they don't see anything wrong it comes and goes ... And they said everything looks normal ..
Expert:  khagihara replied 12 months ago.

Didn't they see redness?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
No not really because usually my skin down there will get browner or more red when it goes it protection mode and shrivels up.. If that makes sense.. I'm just lost for answers .. I'm so stressed out with neck pain headaches over this
Expert:  khagihara replied 12 months ago.

How tall? How much do you weigh? Any medical problems? Any medications? Any family medical history?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
I'm 6 foot 4 250 pounds. No medical problems really.. Family history of heart attack high blood pressure diabetes. Prostate cancer... I have been on cipro and doxy for two months been diagnosed with enlarged prostate due to prostititus .. White blood cells were found in my urine after prostate message.. I also suffer from excess swearing so I was taking robinul for that for over a year to control my sweating. I do tend to get high blood pressure when I'm nervous some highest was 145/100
Expert:  khagihara replied 12 months ago.

Since your doctors can't find the skin lesion, it could be due to the nerve problem in the glans. You should try to take oral neurontin or cymbalta. It also helps neck pain & headaches.

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
That is possible I could have nerve problems? Now I do have bulging disks in my back in the past and pack pain and hip pain.. I'm just more scared this resembles herpes. But from pics I have seen online I don't think it is but in my head I'm thinking it is...
Expert:  khagihara replied 12 months ago.

After the white one is gone, the skin looks normal.

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
your opinion would you rule out herpes
Expert:  khagihara replied 12 months ago.

No herpes.

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
I don't know if you saw my other posts with pictures. I'm just stressed trying to figure out why I feel like this .. Now I did have prostititus in the past with Penis pain.. Put never saw skin changes as much.. And I noticed it came after a. Sexual encounter almost 11 weeks ago.. That's why I'm worried but all my doctors tell me it's nothing and stress can play a factor. But I believe it's some kinda of fungal infection cause I have had pain on top of my glands that come and go for many months
Expert:  khagihara replied 12 months ago.

Try neurontin or cymbalta. If it works, it is not fungal infection.

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
Can I get that otc.. Do you still believe it's not herpes
Expert:  khagihara replied 12 months ago.

No, they are prescription medications. Not herpes.

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
No I'm saying my condition do you still believe it's not herpes? Are you able to prescribe meds or do I need to try to get it from my own doc?
Expert:  khagihara replied 12 months ago.

It is not herpes. You need to get it from your doctor.

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
Ok so herpes sore would crust over like pictures I saw? And pimples or white filled areas that pop could be from a fungal infection. ? And fungal infections can make you sick tired and so on? Can they cause that
Expert:  khagihara replied 12 months ago.

Ok so herpes sore would crust over like pictures I saw? Yes. And pimples or white filled areas that pop could be from a fungal infection? No. And fungal infections can make you sick tired and so on? No. sick tiredness could be due another cause such as diabetes, depression, underactive thyroid, and so forth.

Customer: replied 12 months ago.

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
I just don't know what's going on can u help
Expert:  DrThomasMd replied 12 months ago.

This is a harmless cyst.

Use a hot compress and do soap scrubs for several days to a week.

If it does not resolve, show it to your doctor.
