What causes tingling in pelvic area and left thigh and irritation on scrotum?
Between May 28- XXXXXXX 1st- Had sex with trusted source
XXXXXXX 11th- Lifted something very heavy and seemed to have pulled a muscle in my inner left thigh.
On or about XXXXXXX 13-14- Started experiencing some tingling in pelvic area and left thigh mainly while driving or sitting down, This is about the same time I began to notice the irritation/rawness on my scrotum and on penis and some slight heavy feeling in testicles.
XXXXXXX 19- Had an ultrasound done and everything came back fine. No torsion. Doctor thought I might have some nerve issues in scrotum and penis from the heavy lifting.
July 3rd- Visited urologist and was prescribed Cipro. Urine sample was collected and everything looked normal. I was told to put vaseline on my scrotum and use Ibuprofen for the inflammation.
Currently-The tingling in the pelvic and thigh has gone away. No sign of lesions, bumps. No nausea, or fever, no loss of appetite. No redness, no rash.
The only thing I'm experiencing is a raw/tender to the touch area on one side of my scrotum.
Does this sound like an STD or a skin irritation
Possiblity of Zoster Sien herpete
Hello and welcome to healthcaremagic
I have gone through your detailed history.
It is definitely not an STD. Symptoms which are suggestive if an STD are: burning sensation on passing urine, discharge per urethrum, ulcers/sores, on penile skin or mucosa, swelling in the inguinal region etc. You have none of these.
However your symptoms are most likely due to muscle pull or may be due to zoster sine herpete. Zoster sine herpete ("zoster without herpes") describes a patient who has all of the symptoms of herpes zoster except this characteristic rash. Zoster sine herpete is more likely since your symptoms are unilateral.
Possiblity of Zoster Sine herpete
Yes, you should seek an appointment with a dermatologist for a confirmatory diagnosis.
If indeed it is zoster sine herpete (which is very likely considering that the symptoms are unilateral), adding a Vit B 12 supplement in a dose of 750 mcg to 1500 mcg daily would help you with the symptoms (burning, tingling, skin pain etc). You can start with Vitamin B12.
Gabapentin/Pregabalin is also useful in nerve related symptoms. It is a prescription drug. If the symptoms are bothersome it may be added in consultation with your dermatologist
