I am a 32 year old male. Approximately one year ago last September I began feeling what I now call "It". Characteristics of my illness are early onset: emergence of small singular nose ulcer/lesion which scabs over with a clear yellow pus., followed by one inside my bottom lip. Followed ultimately by what can only be described as looking like a slightly pink dime sized abrasion on the tip of my penis. No blisters or discharge. Worse yet is the second stage: I experience joint soreness in my hips knees and elbows, followed by extreme fatigue to the tune of 12 -13 hours straight of uninterrupted sleep and wake up feeling as though I could continue napping. I haven't always maintained the best nutrition or exercise so a deficiency cannot be ruled out. I am on no regular medications and I am well within normal BMI for my height and all other vitals are normal. I have visited Emergency rooms in 3 countries, been to dermatologists, neurologists, family practitioners and no one has come up with a diagnosis. Full blood workups have been done and ruled out any sexually transmitted diseases. My family history is fairly clear minus my mothers recent diagnosis of MS. Does anyone have any suggestions. My girlfriend thinks it may be diet related combined with stress and n ot getting adequate sleep. I am pursuing a degree with a rigorous schedule so EXTREME STRESS is a factor. Please help.

  • Parasites that penetrate the skin cause itching. When tissue becomes inflamed from these parasites, the body’s white blood cells increase to defend the body. This reaction causes skin rashes and food allergies to appear. Parasites also create toxins and the skin, being the largest organ, tries to remove these toxins which causes many skin problems. Symptoms that include your skin sores with puss but no discharge and Muscle Pain,Joint Pain, Pain in the Back, Thighs or Shoulders. Its often misdiagnosed, or even overlooked. Parasite infections are increasing in america, bring it up to your doctor.
