I'm 25yrs old and have had this problem for about 19 months and counting. I am married, but we have had sexual relations with others. I haven't been able to get a diagnosis.

I have had testing at a Planned Parenthood for about five of the big names of STDs and none came out positive. The doctor suggested I change my soap, keep area clean without over doing it and seeing a dermatologist if problem persist. I went in to a different location for second opinion and doc thought it could be yeast related, but couldn't diagnose and suggested I see a specialist. Since I don't have health insurance and can't afford to see one I don't know how to resolve this problem.

I have reddish dots that appear and disappear in clusters and vary in color intesity. The greatest concentration is located and the base of the head and when an occurence takes place it grows upward towards the pee hole. They are not raised but texture of skin varies slightly. I have increased sensitivity and moisture, especially through outbreaks, but no major discomfort and no discharge. During periods that it clears up they almost disappear completely except for faint single or couple dots at the base of the head. The increased sensitivity prevents me from cleaning the area as I'd like to, as a result, it often smells. The red dots appear to eat at the skin similar to an ulcer but peak out borderline prior to breaking skin.

Since infection my wife and I have engaged in unprotected relations even though she is aware of them. I will follow up this evening with photos. All professional advice is greatly appreciated.

  • Hello,You may want to disregard this comment as I am only 14 years old, but I have the same condition as you do. I have not had sex, so it can't be an STD which must be a relief for you. I have googled it and most of the health forums seem to suggest its 'Contact Dermatitis', which is a rash that comes about from direct contact with irritants; such as Soap. I have booked an appointment to see the doctor about it, and once he's had a look and given me feedback, I'll let you know.James.
