User :   i think it all started some 1 month back
Doctor :

User :   initially i thought some ant had bit my penis
Doctor :  
ok
User :   some one week back i examined my penis and i had seen small 3 tiny dots very minute on the skin which covered my forehead
User :   i ignored it and masturbated that night
Doctor :  
is there only itching or any redness and ulceration is also there?
User :   I think post masturbation it has aggravated and for the next two days I have a strong itchy feeling
Doctor :  
ok
Doctor :  
does masturbating increase this itching everytime since then?
User :   and after that i washed my penis with soap pears
Doctor :  
ok
User :   no i had seen one day my penis was red but nothing out of normal but now it is back to normal color
Doctor :  
ok
User :   after that i kept my hand off penis and resisted my urge to rub it
Doctor :  
what i suggest is that you get this examined and get these tests done to find the exact cause and treat it
Doctor :   for this you will need to meet a urologist
User :   what your inital diagonosis of this symptoms
User :   i booked an appointment with a dermatologist
Doctor :  
do these test: Urine routine and micro, blood tests-complete hemogram, VDRL,
User :   do i need to chane that
User :   what that test for
Doctor :  
no, you need not change it, the most probable diagnosis would be balanitis, syphyllis, or allergic reaction to either change of soap or undergarment
User :   and more thing i have small dots or rashes around my corner of lip for the past week
Doctor :  
ok
User :   i used to getit during my childhood around my mouth carner
Doctor :  
ok
User :   but i think it is related to the same think XXXXXXXX i have in my penis forehead
Doctor :  
the rashes like thing around the mouth can happen in deficiency of essential nutrients.
Doctor :   which need not be linked to those in penis
Doctor :  
the penis lesions need to be examined and then we can say what it could be
Doctor :  
since i am not examining you personally, i cannot suggest the exact diagnosis
User :   is ther any possibilty of having herpes based on this symptoms
User :   do i need to consult dermatologist or urologist
Doctor :   if you are sexually active, and have had unprotected intercourse before then this can be a possibility
Doctor :  
and if so, then you will need to get it confirmed
Doctor :  
by doing a serological test or herpes
User :   i got an appointment only for next thursday
User :   with dermatologist
Doctor :  
a dermatotologist trained in venereology should be fine
Doctor :  
ok
User :   do i need to act immediately or 4-5 delay is fine in this case
User :   i meant 4-5 days delay
Doctor :  
please confirm your contact details, our CRM team wil contact you soon to fix your appointment with urologist/dermatologist in 1-2 days time
Doctor :  
in the nearest health facility
Doctor :  
ok
User :   do u have health centre here
Doctor :  
, we do not have our health center there
Doctor :   can you send us a picture of the lesions such that we can have our panel dermatologists look at it and reply to you in 24 hours time?
User :   yes i can do that
Doctor :   or you can opt for taking a e-mail or a phone consult with our panel specialists
User :   do u charge more for that
Doctor :  
and they can respond to you in 24 hours time
Doctor :  
you can send your picture and query to YYYY@YYYY
User :   what are the implications of delaying treatment for another 4-5 days
Doctor :  
yes since it is a different service you will need to pay for the specialist consultation separately
User :   i think it will be better if i can consult one-one.
Doctor :  
the implications of delaying treatment for another 4-5 days could be increase in the severity, delay in treatment, or spread to other areas if infective.
Doctor :  
ok
Doctor :  
then you can wait for your appointment and take the personal consultation
Doctor :  
in the meantime
Doctor :  
you can apply Caladryl lotion to soothe the lesions 2-3 times a day after washing the lesions with mild soap and water
Doctor :  
Is there any thing else I can help you with?
User :   it won't be having any side effects since i am applying on penis i am too concerned about it
Doctor :   no it is a mild lotion, it is only for soothing the itching
User :   i don't have irrestable itch now but my forehaed was smooth two days back and it is slightly wrinkled that is what concerns me more...
Doctor :  
the wrinkled feeling and look of the forehead could be due to dehydration also, drink plenty of water about 10-12 glasses per day. and if needed apply mild moisturiser or coconut oil over it
Doctor :  
the wrinkled appearance would go away if it is due to dehydration
User :   i applied coconut oil once after that my penis started smelling so i stopped it
Doctor :  
if not, then it is due to the infection then the smell might come and also the wrinkled appearance wil remain
User :   if applying coconut oil in any ways doesn't have any side effect i will be happy to apply it
User :   as it more natural product
User :   i don't want to my penis to be susceptible to side effects
Doctor :  
yes, and that is why i suggested that for you since it will not have any side effects
User :   how about Caladryl lotion can i still try it ...
Doctor :  
otherwise if the smell is an issue than you can apply some moisturiser (like baby moisturiser) which are not sensitive
User :   or shall i stick with coconut oil only
Doctor :  
and does not harm the skin
Doctor :  
Caladryl lotion is not going to harm you, even in babies it is used for soothing the 'nappy rash' that they get
Doctor :  
so do not worry about it
Doctor :   go for the scheduled appointment and get the treatment done
Doctor :  
Is there any thing else I can help you with?
User :   ok then i will try caladryl lotion can i apply it all over my penis head and the inner part of skin which covers my penis
User :   that is it this one last question :-)
Doctor :   yes you can apply it over the entire penis if the itching is present
User :   thanks you are very helpful
Doctor :  
but wash before applying it.
