User :   when i woke up my penis was not red
User :   only after the oral sex
User :   also my wife is worried now, because she performed the oral sex
Doctor :   i think it would be a contusion

User :   i thought it was a bruise at first as well
Doctor :   ok,
User :   but now i see that it is srpeading to the head of the penis
User :   also turnign it black as well
User :   could this be a reaction to the new meds?
User :   it seems black
User :   not blue
User :   but a real black
Doctor :   yes the bruise over the glans do present that way
User :   if anythign alnost washed out with a tiny bit of grey
Doctor :   since its a exposed mucous membraine
User :   but it is black line following the scar of circumcision
User :   and now it seems to be black on the head of my penis,
User :   along with the red
Doctor :   ye can be related to the above problem,
User :   should my wife be worried?
User :   and is this related to herpes?
User :   can it be?
Doctor :   there might be kinking of the blood vessels near the circumscision scar
User :   also i never had expereience with a skin turning black like this
Doctor :   no, i do no relate it to herpes
User :   ok nd this would turn it black like this?
User :   it soo weird to see it doing this.
Doctor :   yes, it will turn black
User :   so its possible that maybe she bite too hard on the head of my penis or soemthing like this?
Doctor :   to confirm it the brouise i suggest you to use a tab of Viagra
User :   what would that do ?
Doctor :   since it increases the blood supply into the penis the bruise may ware off
User :   oh really?
User :   could this be something else?
User :   and is it normal for a bruise to seem to be spreading?
Doctor :   and sometimes even a mild hit by teeth can cause this
User :   ah ok
User :   but it seems strange that after the oral sex this morning it seems to have moved
Doctor :   yes, it will spread , since the glans is made of sponge like tissue
User :   ok, so you think this is what it is?
User :   should i go to the emergency room now?
User :   this is the most important question i have i guess
User :   or does it seem superficial?
Doctor :   no other lesions progressing like this
User :   none
Doctor :   no, i do not see any need for ER
User :   and i dont feel pain or something like this
Doctor :   just take a tab of VIAGRA
User :   its jsut black on the surface of the skin
User :   to another quesion are you familiar with cellulitis of the nose?
Doctor :   pain may not be much
User :   i have a skin infection in my nose for weeeeks
Doctor :   as i told a minor hit by teeth can cause this
User :   starts off like a zit on the corner inside of nose
User :   now it progressed to my whole face hurting like a punche din the nose
Doctor :   nose problem has no relation to the problem in the genital
User :   i have srious rhinnits and allergies, and im on many many meds for this treatment
User :   oh yes i know
