Brief Answer:
Upload image for review!

Detailed Answer:

I have reviewed this information. It is not immediately clear what the exact problem is. It could be an infection-sexual related or not. To be sure, I need to gather more details from you.

1. Are you sexually active? If yes, do you have a stable sexual partner? If you have no stable partner, do you always use condoms for protection?

2. Can you kindly upload an image for review. This way, I can see the changes and make a personalized and helpful assertion towards establishing cause and proposing a treatment plan. Follow the directives below to upload an image.

To upload an image, simply click on the link to upload a file and follow the instructions. If this proves difficult, please send the image by mail to YYYY@YYYY and request that the image should be uploaded to your query.

I do promise to get back to you with more insights and helpful recommendations as soon as the requested information gets here.
