hi, and hope i can find some answers. Firstly, my symptoms include some kind of bumps that look similar to dare i say a herpe?, on my feet. sometimes small ones but can get as large as a pencil eraser, red in color and looks to be waterfilled. Now these come out and eventually dry up and go away but always return in 2 weeks to maybe a month. Now also, my scrotal area also itches constantly everyday and seems to be under the skin not on the topical part, and very very annoying i guess i would even say sometimes burns. Now this seems to be more severe when the bumps on my feet are at there most sore stage. When the sores dry up i dont notice it as much.

Strange thing is there is nothing visual to see in the scrotal area. Now into the start of this i dont know if matters but it started occuring shortly after i had unprotected sex a few years ago, scared to death i went to the doctor for a std test and they said it was all negative, this was checking for chlamydia,herpes,gonorreaha, and syphilus. I guess this was to check the scrotal itching. Im really nervous about it its a touchy subject. Ive taken it to the doctors a few times and they say dermatitis and im immediately turned off by this because i know what docs call dermatitis, " a skin problem they cant diagnose. this takes alot out of my life its very painful at times to where i just dont want to do anything. and also its kind of embbarrising to be scratching myself all the time.

Well i hope ive gave enough info on this and appreciate any help i can get

  • Dermatitis is usually caused by exposure to something you're allergic to or that irritates you, like soaps or cologne. If you don't change your use of such things, you're going to be itchy. But I also think you should get looked at again. Try here: http://www.wrongdiagnosis.com/d/dermatitis/causes.htm

  • yes i use the computer alot, no i dont have a cell phone. Ive been checked 4x for this by docs. One said eczema, one said dermititis, and the other 2 just cleared me for the 3 std's listed, and didnt even say what it was. I could try another but, just to say firstly that i change soaps and shampoos all the time so, i dont think its possible its an allergen. anyways, well thanks again

  • How did they check for herpes and syphilis? Do you have a copy of the test results? It could just be a fungus of some type.

  • Well, sounds like they are trying to hi-jack your post...anyway, you would need a blood test for syphilis, to be sure...sounds a lot like syphilis..also, you need a blood test for herpes 2. You should always go in and get copies of any blood or lab tests that you get. They definitely did not test for either... Make sure you see a different doctor.
