Customer Question

Hi, last night after shower and changed clean clothes, suddenly felt painful at scrotum when sit down and stand up.
I tgen check and found 5 swollen area - 3 at pubic, 1 at scrotum near groin, 1 at body end of penis near pubic. The feel lije lumps, little pink, tail finger head size ish. They are very ichy but feel painful when pressed. I then when to see doctor and he said was bugs or lice. I cant see blue spot so dont seems like pubic lice. But i wonder why would it be lice as i have kept well hygene. Would it be really bugs or some other more serious problem? I always use condom too so hard to imagine is std except pubic lice, but cant find brown spots at underwear, cant find any lice, cant find blue spots. Please help, thanks a lot.

2 days before that: i had a bite liked small red bump at the back of knee, it was itchy and i scratched it. While i was scratching it i felt another 4 places started get itchy, 2 near this bump, one in front below knee and one on feet. The all swell up n itchy, after awhile the swell gets back to normal and develop red small itchy bumps. Next day i had 2 more bumps at leg. Would this be related?

I am glad you saw a doctor and got a diagnosis of body lice and are on treatment with malathion.
panadeine is for pain with codeine and paracetamol. if you don't have pain, you don't need to take it.
you should keep your skin dry with baby powder if you are having sweating and moist skin.
you should check your bed for bed bugs as well which can cause bed bug bites.
do you have animals in the home? dogs or cats? these can cause flea bites on your body as well.
let me know if you have questions.
