Brief Answer:
Post Infectious skin dryness and irritation only.

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX
I reviewed all 3 photographs thoroughly.
* No presence of noticeable lesion externally.
* Indicates post infective skin dryness , irritation
only.
That recovers slowly definitely, it is not lifetime.
* Avoid excess rubbing of penis , Clotrimazole.
cream thin layer application 2 times a day, Aloe
Vera gel application 3 times a day.
@ wear clean , dry, cotton underwear.
@ keep a check to avoid excess perspiration.
making inner wear somewhat moist.
Thanks regards.

Brief Answer:
More remedies for throat pain , USG advisable for groin pain dear.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX , welcome .
* Throat problem is residual pain of adenoid enlargement likely .
I will recommend to add 2 herbal products which will help by the way of its
anti- oxidant & anti-inflammatory properties for earlier throat recovery ,
which is on its way .
(1) 3 teaspoonful of turmeric powder added in mild hot boiled milk morning &
evening for 10 days .
(2) 2 tablespoonful of natural honey with 3 grams of ginger once daily .
* Groin pain confirm diagnosis requires ultrasonography report , kindly take an
appointment for that , but till that time don`t afraid of appendix or hernia.
Stomach gas will not give pain in groin .
Hope this will definitely help you.
Thanks regards take care .

Sir i was a patient of IBS before. And milk will be a problem for me to take 2 times a day.
Does slight groin pains which are sometimes i observe and sometimes not. And i felt like it spread up to testicals are as much serious to take ultrasonography? means sir its mild and never been as much high that it will cause some trouble in normal routine. does these have chances related with ibs? or UTI?

Brief Answer:
5 ml boiled milk acceptable in IBS else take turmeric with boiled water.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX ,
* Boiled milk is in quantity of 5 ml which can be taken very safely in IBS , but if
you want to avoid that quantity also , simply you can take with boiled water
as well with equal effects .
* Ultrasound is only for ruling out underlying any minor things , not hard and fast
at this junction , can wait for sometime without worries , but drink plenty of
liquids always .
UTI may have some role in groin pain but not IBS .
Thanks regards .

Sir i think i am again and again asking same type of questions but these are related with my conditions.
sir you were right. Most of my problems are related with my stress now today most of the time i was thinking about groin pain and i forget mu throat and penis problems.
do u think any relation of groin pain with STD? and also sir i am thinking more about this pain and i am thinking pain going backside also. May be a thought only . But thoughts of std and some lymp nodes or hernia i am feeling more. does that feel mild or less pain?
Also sir please tell me is this something serious or just a muscular pain? and what could be the possible factors?is there any chance that this groin pain is due to swollen lymp nodes?

Brief Answer:
swollen lymph node can give groin pain,identify node as per below guideline

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX
There can be groin pain in swollen lymph nodes .
* In case of lymph node swelling there are 2 criteria :
(1) you see the actual node above the surface of the skin , noticeable very well
when more size .
(2) you feel below the skin level under the surface , by your fingers gentle
sensation when less size .
* So definitely you are the best judge on your own for any lymph node swelling
Thanks regards .
