i have had a rough year without getting any diagnosis. maybe someone here can shed some light on my situation. here's the story.

in december last year, my pregnant (2 months) girlfriend and i were out of the country when i suddenly came down with burning urination and discharge. we went to a local std clinic and had the discharge tested/microscoped as well as a vaginal swab of my partner. both showed nothing. i took doxycyclene for two weeks, felt terrible all over but it all finally cleared up. being pregnant, she only took 3 days of amoxycillin.

next, when 8 months pregnant, she had intense bleedind during intercourse. her ob/gyn came to the er and cared for her. diagnosis was possible cervical cancer! we freaked out. the biopsy came back negative so we found a different ob/gyn!

not long after this, i had a circular crater on the top of my penis shaft. i went to std clinic and was negative for hiv, syphilis, chlymidia, etc. i visited my dermatologist who looked at me like a leper and was visibly nervous to touch my penis. disappointing! he gave me some steroid cream and the dry, skin colored crater disappeared.

my wife and i took 1 gram each of z-max after her bleeding. nothing more while she was pregnant or breast feeding. she got a pap smear after the birth and it showed squamous cells of an unknown origin. she gets another smear in a few months.

now, this week, i've noticed the same crater in a different spot as well as 4or 5 shiny lumps in different spots on my penis. no pain, no itching, nothing but mystery spots. we've both been monogamous and have a vigorous, exciting sex life. i'm not likely to return to the std clinic as i was negative for everything 9 months ago. the derm was afraid to deal with my problem. wwhat is my next step?

by the way, i had a molluscum outbreak about 7 years ago but nothing else. i'm frustrated with the lack of diagnosis from a number of different specialists.

Anyone havve any idea? should i find a new dermatologist or return to the std clinic? the clinic told me to see my derm last time.

thanks in advance for input.
