Customer Question
Hi, I'm not entirely sure where...
Hi,
I'm not entirely sure where to start but I'm having several complications around my penis. I'm not sure if they are related but I have a body-wide rash that kinda looks somewhat similar to some of the stuff going on down there.
I went to my GP several times and have been told it was fungal and have been given several creams but to no avail it has not cleared whatever was going on down there. I have taken both oral and topic anti fungal agents but would like a second opinion on what could possibly the issue.
I asked if it could genital herpes but my GP said it didn't look like it was that to him.
the two little red dot like spots seem to come and go as they please but are responsive to triamcinolone acetonide-- and some of the patches seem to go away temporarily with the anti fungal cream.
The last issue is something that i have noticed there for a while, it seems ulcer like and is soft to the touch with fluid like stuff under it but it doesn't really bother me but one of the spots seems to be coming from it-- and it doesn't go away.
I'm very nervous as to what it could possibly be

Hi and thanks for the query,

First of all you should get STD screening and if there is a non healing ulcer or lesion on your penis you should get it evaluated by genitourinary specialist so that anything serious can be ruled out and exact diagnosis can be found and treatment can be given accordingly. You may need a swab test for this.

You can take tylenol 2 tablets for your knee pain and apply ibuprofen gel and crepe bandage.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Please do leave a positive rating by clicking on stars on top right corner.

Wish you good health

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
