What causes a rash around urethra, painful urination and bumps on the testicles?

default
Posted on Thu, 12 May 2016
Question: I have a rash around the opening of my penis but no discharge or burning during urination. Bumps are starting to also appear on the head and testicals. It's very painful to the touch and feels like burning needles. I went to my Dr. who visually examined me and said that he did not see anything to be concerned about, this was on the 18th. He gave me a shsmpoo for fungus demititis. I am concerned because my mother and x-wife have both just gotten over the shingles and I had chicken pox in my youth. I am also wondering if it may also be herpes. I have ED mostly caused by type 2 diabetes and age. I also suffer nuropathy and it feels pretty much like that only there is white spots and the bumps. I've never had std before and am wondering if I may have contracted herpes from having oral sex preformed on me?
