Please Note that self have been experiencing infection on my ***** for the Past 1.5 years. I do experience a tingling sharp itching some time on my *****( may be 3-4 times a day) and then I see few red dots on my ***** tip and covering skin.
Such sharp itching sensation is experienced by me on other parts of my body as well. Specailly when I am sitting idle and thinking on my job or doing some desk work.
Intially this was treated by Flucanazole 150 mg and Microdox-DT 100mg(doxycycline) by a medical practioner, After taking these drugs my ***** looks good and also the itching is gone for a while may be 1-2 months or so.
After year when I again went to the same meidcal practioner , I was told that the infection Herpes Simplex Virus and was administered Acolovir for 6 days. I had acolovir and I had more servere itching as well has swelling of my ***** tip resulting ins a swollen ***** tip. After 6 days there were some improvement and the ***** tip did recover its shape how ever after a month i still felt that the recvoery is not full and the part of my ***** skin(15%) did show some sign of superficial discoloration and looks like a part skin infection. I then took a dosage of Flucanzaole and Microdox DT 100 mg on my own and things came back to normal. However ever since then I do get some red dots and itchy feeling on my ***** tip and the condition has been like this for the past 6 months or so. When I ever i get some Red dots / itchy sensation , I normally apply Valbet Skin oinment( Beclomethasone Dipropionate, Miconazole Nitrate and Neomycin Sulhpate cream)on my ***** to get things in control.
Kindly advice what type condition is this.
I do feel a bit reserved to talk to doctors on this as I feel they might treat me with something which i might not be infected with and do not wana take a chance with my sexual organs.
The medical practioner told me that if the infection is Herpes then it cannon be kept in control by Micdox DT 100mg ( doxycycline) + Flucanazoale. But i felt that afte rhaving Acolycoivr for 6 days things were not that good where esle after I tool Micordox DT and flucanazolae 150mg things looked much better.
Kindly advice
