Hi

Thanks for posting your query

What I gather from your history is that you have three major issue :
1] Ill formed stool
2] Rashes on lips and penis
3] Itching

To help you better I need some information :

1] What is the frequency of stools?
2] Is it associated with abdominal cramps?
3] Which coin size are you talking about, as far as the lesions on lip and penis are concerned?
4] How many times have you faced these episodes?
5] How do the lesions resolve- by themselves - some treatment - or they are there since they appeared first time ?

Get Back to me with this information and I will help you out
Wishing you a Speedy Recovery

Hi

Thanks for your followup

I am sure by now you would have read a lot about cold sore here are few tips :

Apply ice to the sores to help ease pain.
Wash the blister gently with germ-fighting (antiseptic) soap and water.
This helps prevent spreading the virus to other body areas.
Avoid hot beverages, spicy and salty foods, and citrus.
Take a pain reliever such as acetaminophen.

Here are some tips to prevent mouth sores:

Apply sunblock or lip balm containing zinc oxide to your lips before you go outside.

A moisturizing balm to prevent the lips from becoming too dry may also help.

Avoid direct contact with herpes sores.

Wash items such as towels and linens in boiling hot water after each use.

Do not share utensils, straws, glasses, or other items .

Do not have oral sex if you have oral herpes, especially if you have blisters.
You can spread the virus to the genitals, causing genital herpes.

Both oral and genital herpes viruses can sometimes be spread even when you do not have mouth sores or blisters.

This is about the precautions you need to take and I feel you need to take Levocetrizine for five to seven days and if need be repeat famciclovir for another five to seven days

Hope this helps

Hi

Thanks for your followup query

I would just reassure you

It appears to be a viral infection so no need to worry
Continue tonics for six weeks to improve immunity

No need to change the doctor as it will confuse you more
