I have bruising on my ankles when either on my feet too or

I have bruising on my ankles when either on my feet too long or seated too long. Also have moderate to severe eczema at the ankles and knuckles of my hands as well as some feet and wrist eczema outbreaks. I an 43 y/o male weighing now 320 pounds. I have battled weight issues losing 40 pounds but still when the outbreaks occur it feels as though my legs don't quite work right, so it's making it tough to continue losing. I also lose balance doing simple tasks during outbreaks and have been treated for eczema repeatedly, but the issue only continued to worsen. Burning itching legs at rest. Support stockings not effective, seems to irritate. Topical steroids not effective. Not diabetic as my A1C is wnl. Also fasting glucose stays between 90-105. Antihistamines not effective on the worse but seems to help with some minor rashes. At a loss and now no insurance...

About a week ago I had a pain during sex with my wife. We

About a week ago I had a pain during sex with my wife. We noticed blood on the sheets and I was bleeding from the penis. The next day there was swelling and bruising with blood under the skin, looked like a busted blood vessel. Over the next few days the swelling has started going down and the bleeding had gotten to be less each day. Yesterday I was having a little more blood than the previous day but it was a darker blood that appeared to have some small clots in it. When I pee the small amount of blood exits before the pee. There is no pain associated with the condition. I plan on going to a urologist next Tuesday or Wednesday when my wife gets back in town. Is it going to hurt to wait until Tuesday to go, all urologist are closed on the weekend

I was diagnosed with an outer ear infection in the left ear

I was diagnosed with an outer ear infection in the left ear three days ago and given Cipro ear drops. The pain in the ear has improved quite a bit but I've had a sore throat (tender when swallowing; not scratchy or raw feeling) on the same side (left side of throat only). Is this likely related to the ear infection and something that will resolve as that does or do I need to go back to my doctor?
