Customer Question
I have had psoriasis on...
I have had psoriasis on the penis glans on and off for 17 years which i have always trwsted with 1% topical hydrocortisone cream. But over the years it has gotten more and more resistant to the steroid resulting in me having to use more cream and for longer to treat it. Suddenly one month ago i began experiencing a hypersensitivity in the whole groin area. Penis foreskin, scrotum and inner thighs all burn and are sensitive to clothing touching them. Also scrotum skin has totally changed pigmentation at both sides with a straight border between the two colour skins. I am really worried long term hydrocortisone use has triggered genital dysaesthesia. Have convinced GP to prescribe gabapentin, amytriptyline and oxytetracycline but no improvement in one month.

No. In any case not reslly much to see. Intense burning pain on inner thighs, forskin snd scrotum but skin all normal, apart from sides of scrotum are pinkish white as opposed to darker coloured normal middle. Clean borderline between the two pigmentations. But the forskin and inner thigh skin appear notmal

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.
