Doctor :   hi
User :   hello agian
Doctor :  
how can i help you?
User :   hopefully there won't be any issues this time
User :   ok
User :   I have what looks like a very small pimple
Doctor :  
ok
User :   it is between my scrotum
User :   and my shaft of my penis
User :   it does not itch, or hurt
User :   but I was able to "pop" it, and it had a small amount of pus
User :   its so small that it will not show up on a pic, or I would send you one
User :   but it was enough to freak me out
Doctor :  
I could go through your last discussion. we have not yet received the picture
User :   wel
User :   it will not show up very well
User :   i can't make it out in the picture
Doctor :   ok
User :   all I can see is the hair, and the base of my shaft
User :   also
Doctor :  
ok
User :   it still has a bump, rather then a recess, after the pop
User :   if that makes any difference
Doctor :  
you can send the picture to YYYY@YYYY
User :   well, it won't show up
User :   you won't be able to see anything
User :   its very small
User :   I would measure it about 3 to 4 milimeters in diameter
Doctor :  
we will try to have a look at it for better understanding of your problem before suggesting what can be done.
User :   ok
User :   well, let me see what I can do here
User :   one moment please
Doctor :   you try and take a closer picture and send it to us
Doctor :  
sure.
User :   if I get dropped and send you an email, would you be able to reply via email? I am worried I will lose you
User :   YYYY@YYYY
Doctor :  
no, its ok, you can send the picture, and continue the discussion with me here
Doctor :  
the e-mail opinion is a different service for which you might need to pay again as charges are different
User :   ok
User :   understood
User :   I just sent it via my phone
User :   I have no idea what it will look like though
Doctor :  
i will wait for you to send the picture, i can get it instantly when you send it
Doctor :  
ok
User :   its on the way
User :   its right in between my fingers
Doctor :  
let me check, just give me a moment.
User :   I hope the quality is OK
User :   any luck? or do I need to resend?
Doctor :  
have got it, but the resolution is too high to make out anything
User :   thats what I was afraid of
Doctor :  
it will be better if you can send with normal resolution
User :   I don't have much options with my phone
User :   it should be a 1 megapixel camera
User :   hmmm, can you zoom at all?
Doctor :  
its ok, just do not zoom while taking the snap, take it with normal settings and a bit increased brightness
User :   damn
User :   I can't give you anything better then what was sent...
Doctor :  
the 'pimple' that you talking about looks like a heat boil to me, which happens once in a way but to diffrentiate it between a usual 'pimple' and one due to herpes/syphillis
Doctor :  
we wil need to do blood test
User :   OK, let me ask a few questions
Doctor :  
VDRL or RPR for syphillis, and serological tests for herpes
User :   how long is the gestation period for herpes? could I go for years without ever seeing symptoms, then see one wart?
Doctor :  
yes, it can happen like that, herpes can be present for years in latent period and when immunity goes down, appear up
User :   OK
Doctor :  
but wart will not appear like a pimple
User :   now, if it is as mild as only having one
User :   would there be pain? and on what level would you rank it?
Doctor :  
the surface will be more rough and it wil not have one opening, it can be flat without opening or have multiple openings
User :   OK
Doctor :  
syphillis gives painless bpil/pimple to start with
User :   yikes
User :   ok
Doctor :  
herpes also can be painless in early stages
User :   ok
User :   another detail that I have not mention
User :   ed
Doctor :  
so to confirm or rule out these two possibilities, you wil need to do the above mentioned tests
Doctor :  
and get the 'pimple' examined.
User :   ok
User :   another couple of questions
Doctor :  
apply topical antibiotics or take oral ones which will be decided after the examination and the test reports
User :   I have what is basically a desensitized penis. I cannot go through intercourse, and I have to masturbate rather vigrously. could this just be physical trauma as well?
Doctor :  
sure, please go ahead
User :   not that I expect a diagnosis, I am just exploring possiblities
Doctor :  
ok
Doctor :  
vigorous masturbation can disrupt the hair follicles
Doctor :  
which might get blocked and infected
Doctor :  
resulting in appearance of such ' pimple'
User :   OK
Doctor :  
which will not pain much but when 'popped' will result in pus and blood coming out
User :   OK, to be honest, I think that may narrow things down though I really want to do a test since I am active
User :   how much do you know about anorgasmic disorder, I know this is unrelated, and perhaps irresponsible to ask under these circumstances, but I figure since I paid for 30 minutes I should ask
Doctor :   its ok, you can ask
User :   I have yet to find an doctor that has been able to render an opinion on the cause, other then psychological causes, which I strongly belive is not the case
Doctor :  
anorgasmic disorder is one where the person does not reach orgasm
Doctor :  
it can happen in males as well as in females
Doctor :  
the most common cause being over masturbation
User :   OK, from what I read, it could mean that you can't orgasm through the friction obtained through intercourse
Doctor :  
yes you are right
User :   I have had that since the day I first had sex
User :   and have had several partners since then
Doctor :  
ok
User :   and it has never happened
Doctor :  
i will need to ask few personal questions here
Doctor :  
shall i proceed?
User :   its ok
User :   we have been plenty personal tonight
User :   so go right ahead
Doctor :  
since what age you have been masturbating?
User :   about 12-13
