Have redness and itchiness on penis shaft. What could be this? - Online Doctor Chats
hi doctor. I am XXXXXXX here
how can i help u today ?
at my penis shaft right below the penis head
May i know your age ?
and how did ur symptoms start ?
i am 29
i didn't know how it start
it js started
js out of sudden
how many days, do you have it ?
around 1 week
does it hurt, when u touch it ?
i use to masturbate
but i havent had any sexual intercourse
for quite sometime
check out that picture
its right below the penis gland
and above the shaft of the penis
i understood that
so its actually between the shaft and the gland
but its js redness n itchiness
do u have any vesicles or pustules there ? or just redness and itchy skin ?
js redness n itchy skin
i really have no idea how did it came
before it started, did you have any sensitivity or pain in the exact area ?
actually way before
but i dont think its related
because the sensitivity was due to harsh intercourse
but then it went off after a month
then after another month
wait actually more than a month
did you have such pain , say about 2-3 days before the onset of the redness ?
it was js one side
i am looking from the top
ok, in that case, it is not related to herpes
it was on the left side
the redness was on the left side
and then after around 4-5 days
it the whole thing
it is probably due to masturbation or related skin injury
try not to scratch the penis
but i still masturbate when its itch
so what should i do?
do not masturbate for a week from now
you can apply K Y jelly to the area
so ntg major right?
and you should let it heal
should i wash with anything
can soap be the issue?
no, soaps, would not be the issue
so what you think its the cause of it?
the cause is skin injury related to masturbation
js a last question
apply Ice packs, to relieve the itching sensation for now
have the redness symptom for long before it appear
usually in herpes, the area begins to become more sensitive and painful
i was once diagnose with very low herpes, 1.15 they call it false positive
after 3-4 days, bubbles or vesicles with clear fluid appear
oh okay but herpes are not XXXXXXX right?
and after a few days, they break up, and result in raw skin which is highly painful
no, it is not XXXXXXX , but once it is seen, it can become recurrent and persist life long
but since you had a false positive test, its nothing to worry
but i have not taken the test again for that matter
your current symptoms do not appear to be due to herpes
so does herpes carry the same symptom?
probably, you have scratched your skin too much, which might have increased the redness
XXXXXXX 3-4 days it will appear correct?
i have already described the skin lesions and presentation of herpes , just a few quotes above
yes, the bubbles and vesicles will appear 3-4 days after the onset of the pain
U r welcome
bye for now
take care and have a good day
bye for now
