Great to "see" you Doc. So the dampness in the crotch.thigh area has not yet still gone away and it feels at its worst when i am wearing looser jeans which is odd. Its damp and itchy down there but i dont visually see any evidence of a rash or tinea.
The other thing is that the tip of my penis continues to feel a little tender/raw and tingles on occasion. Not sure what is causing that.
Yes...at least without a visible rash. Feels very inflamed, itch, scaly. Not that bad when i have shorts on or non-jeans as well
I am going to the store tonight to get Tanactin powder which my PCP recommended. SInce we last chatted I have been on the routine of applying the econazole cream once a day, and the lotrimine powder once a day
scrotum, inner thighs, below ballsack
yes and yes my pcp did look at the area
primarily in creases of pelvis though the pcp thinks it has improved there is what looks to be a little bit of chafing below ball sach on left inner thigh also
It did not. That's a possibility?
Ok, so what do I do then? Also for some reason my PCP suggested I go to Tanactin powder. WHy do you thinkt hat is?
ok and what about this penis issue
I did...he didnt seem to concerned about it as he asked if i had burining during urination (which i said no) and if i had been sexually active recently (i told him not in 3 years) and then he looked at penis and said it looked healthy
How do you digitally check a prostate? A CT Scan?
i was thinking about going to the er tonight just to have a few of these things checked...
Sorry i may not be following...what does it mean digital with my finger?
Oh that's gross
Hope you don't mind me asking this...but have you ever had weird issues in the genital area in your life? I just want to get perspective...
Doc, just out of curiosity, what did your 3 years comment mean?
"OK--while prostatitis and urethritis can cause the symptoms you're describing, without any sex for that long then this couldn't be an STD of any kind."
Ok what about the worst fear STD?
Tingling/tenderness in penis is not a symptom at all?
Ok thx.you are 100% sure?
Ok what'sconfusing me is that you would think this tenderness/tingling would cause discomfort/perhaps burning during urination but it is not...
Were you concerned about me? Got a call and email from JA saying so?
Ok It was strange becuase they called my cell phone too
Ok, I still have the tingling, tenderness at the tip of the penis. Made an appointment with a urologist for next Thursday. Hopefully this doesnt get worse...
more like when they are overgrown a tad and u walk in shoes the pressure of them going into the toe of shoe, like a mild nerve sensation
SO I am crazy? Haha
Ok maybe i am using wrong adjectives to describe the penis issue, i will start over and say it feel kind of "raw" and occasionally tongles. By raw I mean as if it would if someone just did surgery on it.
i hope you are right Doc, I promise you though something def is off there...it may not be serious (let's hope not) but I do feel mild discomfort. There is no discharge or burning during urination which is good but at same time baffles me as to what it could be
Btw I switched from lotrmine powder and econazole cream to lotrimine spray yesterday and i feel a lot better with spray. Is that weird?
less itching, irritation, burning and also dampness
Ok, if you have buring during urination doc, what would that feel like exactly?
Ok I don't have that and the sensation has improved somewhat today as opposed to last 2 days. We will see what the urologist says. I got moved up to meet him next Monday which is a relief. ANything specific I should ask him besides take a look at the penis and analyze urine sample?
Ok thx Doc. What would I do without you!
