Question
On shaft of penis cauliflower like lesion midway down and red dots that form a v shape on the under side of the head of penis witch seem to have tunneled to underside of head Under urethra opening on both sides pigment is yellow. burning sensation constantly. Top of shaft skin is receding back and thining. Antibiotics stop burn but wont cure. Body itching all over including scalp. My skin broke out 2 years in a row durring summer time. White crust looking bumps and also raised bumps that where skin colored with no heads they stayed for a while and eventually left. My knuckle was itching and burning one day from under the skin, it ulcerated and went away.(strange) On both thumbs is a raised lession that interrupts the skin line and gives off heat. Dr say normal. My eyes have started to become brown in white parts with black specs that have blood vessels meeting them in some kind of defense.My eyes itch and nothing seems to be in them again Dr says normal but i say otherwise. I have had very small water bumps on both hand. Red spots on the bottom of feet. Both feet were peeling and a point in time. blood blister on chest and inside cheeks. Puss filled bumps in inner folds of elbows that come and go. Also on palm side of hand close to the rist there is a darkend area and water bumps come from under the skin every so often. Lymph nodes swelling in groin area including knots in between groin thy area with white stuff coming out. All 10 finger nails were brittle looking at the beginning. I have had a little rash of bumps on my ear lobe. Nothing has shown up in blood work. It seems that antibiotics are cleaning the infection from my body but needs to be handled in the primary spot of infection. This has been a 3 year struggle with no answers just being pumped with antibiotics.They are starting to say that im delusional but i need help asap. Thank you and God bless you.

Brief Answer: Rule out Genitalwart,psoriasis,contactdermatitis Detailed Answer: Hi, Welcome to XXXXXXX Thanks for posting your query. You have described lot of problems. 1.Cauliflower like lesion over shaft of penis could be a genital wart. 2. All the other problems explained by you not seems to be due to STD. As you have these problems for three years and all the blood results were negative for STD, these are unlikely to be due to STD/HIV. 3.As your skin lesions and itching involved scalp, feet and palms and also your nails psoriasis has to be ruled out. 4. Water bumps, (blisters) over palms and soles may be likely to be some contact dermatitis or a condition called as Pompholyx. 5 Lymph nodes over groin region might have been a transient secondary to some bacterial infection . If you consult a Dermatologist, he will examine you and along with investigation he will be able to come to a diagnosis of your problem and treat you appropriately. Dr S.Murugan

Brief Answer: MRI will not be useful. consult a Dermatologist. Detailed Answer: Hi, Welcome back. MRI will not be of any use in case of skin disorders and STDs. Applying vinegar over wart there will be a color change into white. But it is better to get examined by a dermatologist. Dr S.Murugan

Brief Answer: MRI not indicated to detect infection. Detailed Answer: Hi, Welcome once again. Nobody used MRI to detect infection. If at all indicate some swelling of soft tissue. MRI will be useful to detect some swelling, space occupying lesions, bony abnormalities and gaping etc. There are many other tests to detect infection like smear examination, staining techniques and culture methods etc. Dr S.Murugan

Brief Answer: Notto imagine odd things.Follow physician guidance Detailed Answer: Hi, Welcome back. When your doctors said that there is nothing in your eyes then why are you worrying about?. Similarly you need not see anything beneath, or inside your head of penis. If there is something abnormal it will be exhibited outside as redness , irritation or swelling. It is the duty of your physician to investigate the reason for the same. Don't imagine yourself as parasites etc. That is called as illusions. You can not catch something which is not existing. Present your problems to your physician and it is his duty to investigate and treat the problem and if it is beyond his preview he will refer you to an appropriate specialist. Don't worry unnecessarily. Dr S XXXXXXX

the eye doc said conjunctivitis which is caused by bacteria infection if not mistaken. he gave me drops and antirobotics. he said this prob isn't gonna fix the problem until you get it taken care of on the other end. he sent me to infectious disease specialist and he looked at me and said I don't see anything and I was gonna have to find someone that believed me. I don't know what to do. I'm infected but don't know what. it's something. the eyes never lie.

Brief Answer: Conjunctivitis associted with discharge,watering Detailed Answer: Hi, Welcome back. Bacterial conjunctivitis is not a difficult one to treat. Any doctor can treat the same with appropriate oral and local antibiotics. Conjunctivitis always associated with discharge from the eyes especially when you get up from the bed and watering other times. Infectious disease specialist would be an experienced person and trust him. Don't look for some one who believes you. The infectious disease specialist would miss any finding. Get well soon.

Brief Answer: Gram's staining is used to identify the organism. Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX, Welcome once again. In viral conjunctivitis, the eye discharge will not be marked, but watering and irritation will be more whereas in bacterial conjunctivitis early morning collection will be more and may be painful. Usually in bacterial conjunctivitis, the staining procedures and culture methods tried very rarely as the treatment would not be so difficult. The discharge is smeared over a glass slide and stained with Gram's staining technique. According to the appearance of bacteria and the color it takes during the staining procedure, it can be differentiated as Gram positive or Gram negative cocci or bacilli, Strepto or staphylo etc. According to the outcome the antibiotic can be chosen. Culture of bacteria also can be tried if it is very difficult to treat. I hope you got the point. Your doctor will decide and guide you better. Dr S.Murugan
