Customer Question

JA: Hi. What is your issue regarding?
Customer: I've been having dryness on the shaft of my penis and a goose bump like rash on my stomach and arms. Last time I had this rash I also had strep throat. That was only a couple of weeks ago
JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Do you have a cough?
Customer: About a week and my throat is sore. I didn't finish my antibiotics for my strep. That makes me think it has come back.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I have very high anxiety and I take no medication for it. Also I work in a kitchen where it is very hot.

Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

you should have finished your antibiotic for your strep antibiotics.

you should be on medications to help decrease your anxiety

if your anxiety symptoms are not treated, you will continue to be anxious.

you sound anxious now .

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I finished the antibiotics now. I've had anxiety since I was eight years old, it stems from aspergers. I rarely have ever gotten a rash from it . Currently I'm at the same level of anxious I am always at which is my normal. Doesn't help explain my dryness or goosebumps like rash.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

dryness of skin of shaft of penis can be from dry air and showering and using too much soap on the area

goosebump like rash can be from dry skin or anxiety which can cause goosebumps.

these symptoms are not specific and don't mean your strep throat has come back.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
My throat and tonsils are swollen. Just wasn't sure if I would need more antibiotics
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

you need to see a doctor to get your throat examined to see if you still have strep throat

or if you have acid reflux or anxiety causing your sore throat.

Never had the dryness and rash link up at the same time before and it's happened twice.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

it doesn't mean you have strep throat back.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What's the best way to treat the dryness. Ive been using a Vaseline lotion.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

vasaline is too thick and greasy.

you should use a regular think moisturizer like eucerine or lubriderm.
