This past Monday my groin penis area was burned with apple

Resolved Question:

This past Monday my groin penis area was burned with apple cider vinegar. I went to the Emergency room and they said dermatitis but burned. I was told keep it clean and use bacetracin. I have done so and the normal,pain subsided. Tonight I have a sharp rug burning like pain which I'm not sure is from infection but its in an area away from the main burn area. Any actions I should take?

Hello,

Thank you for your question,

I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.

How far is it from the burn area?

Is there any swelling, redness?

Do you feel any tenderness, lump?


Customer: replied 10 months ago.
About 2-3 inches I don't feel swelling, it's from the leg bone area to the base of the testicles just down from the groin area. No lumps.
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 10 months ago.
Is the pain persisting or occasional?

Did you take any medicine?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Occasional it feels like a rug burn for lack of a better term. Just an aspirin.
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 10 months ago.

Thank you Aaron, for the information.

Pain in an area away from the burn can arise if there is an enlargement of lymph node from inflammation or infection.

But you are not feeling any swelling or lump or redness there.

Pulling of scar tissue can cause a burning sensation.

Otherwise this pain may not be related to the burn.

Sometimes, muscle spasm, nerve impingement can cause it.

Aspirin should help to relieve it.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Regards.

How would I check the lymph node? I know the doctor at the ER did so but I don't remember how.
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 10 months ago.
You can feel the area gently.

If lymph node is enlarged, it will feel like a node/ lump.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
What area would I check? Left side of body
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 10 months ago.
You can feel both the sides.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I don't know where they're located...
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 10 months ago.
Do you feel any lump in your pain area?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I'm not feeling anything...
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Just a dull " rug burn" type pain
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 10 months ago.
Then you need not to worry.

If a lymph node was enlarged you could feel a lump there.
