Customer Question
Hi. I'm not...

Hi. I'm not sure where to go for this... For several months now, I've been having a aching sensation on the left side of my pelvic area. Additionally, the lefts side of my penis' skin FEELS very raw and chafed. It's felt this way for months. It also feels that way around the left side of my scrotum and left buttocks/anal area. I have no idea where to go. Further, I'm without insurance and am afraid to just walk in somewhere and stump the doctor, and spend the money for no solution. Any particular advice or specialist I should see? Thank you.

Doctor's Assistant: Is the condition chronic, or acute?

Well, it's been on and off almost daily, and in varying degrees of intensity for about 3 months now.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I had a rash on the inside left side of my inner thigh about a month ago, but that appeared after the discomfort showed up. I've been tested for STDs and nothing shows up, other than HSV1, which I've had for years. And I don't think it would be responsible for the duration of this discomfort.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
