Itchy Penis Tip - Dr's no help

Hi all,

Ok, about 2 weeks ago I started getting itchy testicles for an hour or two per day. From there, I started to become itchy in the tip of my penis, where I could see a slight rash (size of a 10c coin on the underside of the tip).

Over the following days the rash moved, and is now on the top of the penis. The area around the opening of the penis is also quite red and itchy and the foreskin is also quite red.

Apart from the above there are no other symptoms. There is no discharge, no lumps, blisters etc and other than the small rash/itching I feel well.

I have not had intercourse in around 4 months. I have however had foreplay/handjob (but no oral) about 3 weeks prior.

In terms of treatment, I have taken difulcan(sp) 1, as well as applying canestan(sp) cream once a day to the affected area's. This does not seem to be helping.

As there are no blisters and such is it still possible to get tested for things like siph/herpes?

And most importantly, any thoughts on what it might be?

Thanks

  • I would get a blood test for herpes 1/2. It could be a fungus and if the meds you're on don't work and it re-occurs, I would still vote for the blood work. You can have herpes for years and not know it.

  • You could have developed an allergy to your body soap or laundry detergent. Allergies can develop out of the blue and tend to bother sensitive areas first. I have that problem and have to be careful about the soap I use and I put my undies on an extra rinse cycle when I wash them.

  • Hi guys,Thanks for the replies and suggestions. I have continued to use anti fungal creams over the past 2 weeks and the area has improved a lot though there is still redness and soreness around the opening. I saw another dr who said the same as the first - can't do herpes test as there is no sores etc. & to just keep applying the cream and hope things improve further.Guess I'll see what happens.

I had one done came out negative however I'm still not quite convinced since it can take up to three months for it to show up in blood tests, and NOT all blood tests are the same or accurate. http://www.herpesdiagnosis.com/blood.html
