Question: I have a rash on the folds of my skin around the scrotum for the last 3weeks. Last week I had a bout of diarahea and developed redness and burning which radiated to my groin scrotum and penis. I tried using tin actin, lotramin, and powders. It seemed to help but is not going away. I am freaking because I had unprotected oral sex a few times about two weeks prior to this. Currently I developed a pimple right on the top of my ass crack it hurts like hell and looks to have pus. i had a Std test (blood and urine) in the beginning of November results were positive for type 1 hsv and the rest was negative. Do I need another std test? I plan to see my doctor in the next few days. It doesn't look like any hsv 2 pictures I been looking at but it is freaking me out

Hi,
Welcome to XXXXXXX and thanks for your query.
I went through your detailed history.
I will try to answer to the point.
1. The rashes fit in more with fungal infection (yeast) and should clear with ANTI-FUNGAL CREME OR OINTMENT( MICONOZOLE for example).
2. The pimple looks like a boil/furuncle and needs antibiotics/ if not responding may need drainage.
Neither of them fits with STI/STD, but anyway HIV test is needed.
The pimple may require you to go to the A&E asap.
Best regards
DR GS

I need help!!!!! My 10 month old daughter s eyelids are red and swollen (eye itself is clear). They are itching as well because she is rubbing them nonstop. she is also running a fever between 101-103. This is the 2nd time in a month that she has had red swollen eylids. The peditrician gave steriods and benedryl and the eyes got better. The fever only lasted 1-2 days but her eyes were swollen and red for over a week. But, 3 weeks later, it s back. Please help. We have seen E.R. doctors, Clinic Doctors, and two peditricians and they have all said something different from allergies, infection, Cellulitis to strep rash. The last Peditrician we saw that gave the steroid and benedryl stated that it was caused by strep throat. Again, the steroid and benedryl helped but now the red, swollen eyelids have returned. Please help. Note: she has no other symptoms other than decreased appetite, and sometimes loss of sleep (probably from itchy eyes)

Sir

I am a 21 year old. I have been suffering with wrinkles and rashes on glans for the past 1and a half year. I saw a physician who tested my sugar levels ( which came out to be normal). He then said that this might be due some allergy and recommended flutibact gel which i applied for about 3 months and allegra 120 which i had for about 2 months. Around 1 year back, this turned into a skin infection and the physician recommended Candid- b cream. I applied that for about 3 weeks and the infection was gone completely. But the wrinkles (Or rashes)are still there.earlier the rashes were confined to the bottom of the glans Only but now they cover the whole of the glans. I have never any pain, itching or any sort of uncomfortable feeling while urinating or otherwise. Currently the whole of the skin on the glans is loose and the only problem I face is while removing the foreskin which kind of gets stuck on the loose skin but still there is no pain. Please advise
