I cant even begin to say how having discomfort in this area can completely drain the joy of life out of you. Imagine 24 hours a day having a discomfort in the anus, testicles and urethral opening.

It started after a sexual encounter with a high risk partner while on vacation.

A bit of blood in the urine prompted me to go to the emergency room and be treated with a huge dosage of rosephin and zithromax.

I dont know if it was the antibiotics or the sexual encounter but I broke out in a horrible fire crotch for weeks.

Some doctors say it was thrush or a candida infection, my medical reports say negative to the following:

Herpes, ghoneria (SP) , chlamydia, syphilis, HIV, HEP ABC, no bacteria in the prostate, blood work normal. I even tried a HPV urine analysis hit from MDlabs that screens for HPV.

I also took months upon months of antibiotics as doctors were just feeding them to me with no reason.

I have spent hundreds and billed thousands to my heath care provider.

At the STD level its horrible or men, there is not a "one test fits all" its more like they look at the penis and if all looks good they send you on your way.

Overall symptoms
pain in urethral opening (6 months now gone)
extreme itching in testicles and anus (3 months now gone, but overall horrible feeling in the areas 24/hours a day)
abdominal pain, comes and goes --> mostly sensation in the liver (or right side of the stomach)
Color issues of the head of the penis (sometimes looks really red etc)

I am now seeing a naturalpathic doctor who belives it may be candida, taking 6 pills of nystatin a day along with probiodics and Allimax allicin (like a garlic tablet)

I want to say it may be helping but not really... I wish I had someone to relate to and could shed some lite on my situation. I dont want to meet the perfect girl and have to tell her I have something but we dont know what it is...

  • Why did they put you on oral Nystatin? That's not the first drug that comes to my mind when I think of candida. They should have put you on an oral azole antifungal. Fluconazole would suffice unless you have a resistant strain where you would need to pull out some of the bigger guns. Hope you figure it out.
