Thanks for sharing your concern,

1)Your symptoms of pelvic pain and bloating may be due to intestinal in origin, please let me know is this pain is relived by passing motion or flatus?

2) Other problem of cough and mucus, I want to know do you smoke. Or suffer from any disease like Bronchial Asthma.

3) Red patches on penis and shaft either some form of allergy or infection. I want to know are these patches having itching.

Your problem may be unrelated to unprotected sex two month back.

4) Your HIV and VDRL test are negative so this is unlikely to be related. If required test may be repeated.

Awaiting your response, once I get details, I can answer in detail.

Thanks for updating. The following are my comments:

1. The pain and bloating as predicted appears to be intestinal in origin. Since you mentioned that your stool is loose and pain is reduced after defecation, we need to rule out any organic pathology by stool routine and microscopy and colonoscopy with biopsy. If the test results show normal reports, you probably may be suffering with an chronic bronchitis. Your symptoms may be the initial stage and quitting smoking will help you.

3. Regarding red patch over penis. It may be a fungal infection. You may consult a dermatogist for a careful local examination. If confirmed, you would need proper antifungal treatment.

4. All your symptoms seem to be unrelated to each other. You might need to visit multiple specialists to get it sorted. The reassuring part is we can hope a complete recovery.

Hope this helps you, please feel free to ask any doubt if any.

Dear Dr. Srinivasan

Name - Nitin

Age - 36

I have had recurring problem of red spots (isloated) on my penis head for 3-4 years. I have consulted many docs with varied diagnosis.

I was single then and made to believe it was fungal, it comes on its own and have been getting treated accordingly by a dermatologist.

Recently i got married and again recurringly had red infection on my penis. Along with this, my wife also developed infecion and was put under Gynea treatment, again for fungal infection and Fas Kit prescribed to both along with aplication of fungal infection creams. For the reason not transfering infection bw me and wife, we have stopped having intercourse (unprotected) however my wife was ok but I kept developing these red spots/ infection.

However on repeated occurances we consulted a different dermatologist and he suggested Herpes but blood test reports ruled out. However he insisted that indeed it is Herpes and sometimes the medical reports do not show the same. I was put on Famtrax 250 for 1 week along with application of topical anti-biotic(fusidic acid cream). The red spots kept going and coming but doc clamed it is Herpes geting cured and that takes time to cure as in past i have been exposed to steriod in form of anti-fungal creams. Post a week of Famtrax, i was put on antialergic and anti-biotic cream for a week.

the red spots have gone but now there is recurring white spots (small pimple types) which come and go. On showing to doc, he said its miliaria of penis and common and due to non drying of the area. I was asked to take urine test (culture and routine) and culture cam normal. Routine test pointed to some epidrmal cells (UT infection, I have mild recurring burning sensationtoo) and doc asked me to take Disodium Hydrogen Citrate (Alkasol) for a week. I am currently on Alkasol and Antialergic.

But the white spots are coming and going everyday still. I am not sure if im cured yet but doc says im fully cured but the white spots can be ignored and i can have unprotected sex with my wife.

Problem is i want to start a family soon but am confused due to various diagnosis. I do not want to pass on to my wife and abstain from sex.

Please suggest cure for white spots.

i wll be very greatful.

Kind regards

A friend had psoriasis for over 20 years. Shje is now 57 years of age. 12 years ago she began to suffer from arthritis. Doctors merely said it was psoriatic arthritis. Over the last two years her kidney became diseased (stage 4). It was then that a doctor said she was most probably suffering from yeast/fungal infection. I was wondering if she could be treated for the yeast/fungal infection by way of starvation with saline drip and antifungal. Of course if this is possible it will be done in a hospital. Once the yeast infection is cleared, the kidney disease could be addressed. Your views under no obligation or lialibility please.

Good day. I have noticed a strongish smell after urinating. The pharmacist said its either a fungal or bacterial infection. Diflucan was suggested, but that would only sort out a fungal infection not a bacterial?? i had been on antibiotics a while ago and my life is very stressful right now due to my mother being ill. In the past I would use Diflucan after antibiotics to get rid of the candida which antibiotics cause. NOw there is only a smell of the urine but no actual discharge.

I have a dermatology issue. The skin on my fingers crack. I live in Maine and have suffered from chap fingers all my life. But now it seems to affect my thumbs. During the year, when my hands are clear. A calous will appear. And the skin will peal, and the layers of skin will continue till they eventually bleed. Right now both thumbs are affected. I thought it might be a fungal infection. It could be a contact alegy? The only relief I get is by using tape. Help?
