1 year old suffering from white spots with pus on circumcised penis. What is it ?

My one ur old son ( circumcised) had white spots on his penis. I thought yeast infection. I whipped it away and saw that it was like a pimple type matter so I gently pressed my finger on it and more puss came out. He didn t seem to care at all. A few hrs later I changed his diaper and his penis was very red and it looked like a tear half way around his penis. This is located at the fold of skin just below the head . I was told to keep an eye on it as long as it doesn t get worse it should be fine. But I am concerned. Please give any advice!! Thx

Hiiam male 28 years old. I am from India. I had sex on july 2nd with sex worker. I was the insertive paetner and sh was receptive. Before sex i mastrubated and she found difficulty in putting condom om my penis. With condom we had intercourse which lasted mot more than 3 mins and i did ejaculated. When i took out my penis i found that the confom has been broken. I have enquired about her health and she yold she did not have any issues with her health. After 10 days approx after the exposure i hot some white painless dots all over my penis head. I consulted an hiv specialist and he said it is a fungal infection and gave some antibiotics and fungal cream. He also advise to me to take HIV test at 6 weeks. I did take antibody test at 4 and 5 weeks. I guess it should be the third generation test. Buy 6th week I did HIV p24 and ab ag test and and it came out as negative I have shown the result to the doctor and he told not to worry about HIV anymore. After 2 months I got the white blisters again on my penis it was not it was not severe as the first time. Due to anxiety I did the same hiv p24 and ab ag test at the same lab at 5 months post exposure and the results were non reactive. I I had mild fever after the exposure which does not result more than one day. Also I lost around 3 kgs of my weight and her mouth ulcers for which the doctor told it is due to anxiety. Now it is almost 1 year and I still fear of the infection and my anxiety is getting high. What is the transmission rate for one time exposure for the insertive partner. Also please advise if I need to retake the HIV test or any STD test.

inflamed and sensitive and so is my clitoris. I have no discharge. It has been like this for three or four days or so now. I tend to get yeast infections fairly often, and that may very well be what this is, but there is no discharge. I tried to get an appointment at Planned Parenthood, because I dont have insurance, but they are booked up until a week from now. I have some topical med (nystatin) from my last yeast infection that I am using along with taking acidophilious pills. Could this be something else?

i have been having recurrent yeast infections (3 within thte same month). i think its a yeast infection because i ve had sdimilar symptoms before, but now i m starting to get worried that it might be something else. i ve been examining my genital area and i have found some very small pimples filled with white pus around my clitoris, my vulva is red and swollen, i have a lot of discharge, but no particular bad odour assoiated to it. i just started using flagystatin, and now it started itching too. i also noticed like a few bumps below the vagina opening and around my anus . it doesnt look like a sore, but for some reason, i m really worried that i might be having herpes . should i continue using flagystatin. if i dont have a yeast infection, what can flagystatin do 4 me, can it relieve herpes or treat something else?

My husband had a circumcision (he's 42) after phimosis all his life. It's been 8 months, and his glans are still too painful and sensitive to touch. He's says it feels like a toothache. I wonder if perhaps he had a low grade yeast infection under the foreskin for years going unnoticed. I read untreated yeast can grow rhizomes, and become more in the mold category, going under the top layer of skin in a woman's vagina, and having nearly no symptoms, other than vulva pain similar to what my husband is now describing. He has tried all pain meds for it, including ones for nerve pain. Suggestions on what this might be, other possibilities.... would be great.

I was recently on a round of amoxocillin for a tonsillitis infection, when I also had a yeast infection present at the time of my visit. I was also prescribed diflucan, and took two during the course of the antibiotics (10 days) to clear the infection, and have been eating lots of yogurt and kefir everyday since. I ordered a swab test at the first visit which came back negative for candida, much to my confusion. However, after the two diflucan symptoms subsided. 3 weeks later the tonsillitis returned, along with a UTI. I was prescribed another round of amoxicillin, and I have been 5 days, or halfway through, my second round. About three days ago, two days in to the second round of antibiotics, I developed yet another yeast infection.. or so I thought. I have taken two diflucan, still taking kefir and yogurt, to no avail. I had noticed that the discharge had no yeasty odor, which is usually very obvious to me, yet the symptoms all pointed to the worst yeast infection I ve ever experienced. Tonight I tried a clotrimazole suppository from an OTC 7-day treatment pack, along with acidophilus supplements, and within an hour was experiencing an even more painful and itchy, almost burning reaction. Upon inspection, I noticed very severe swelling of the inner labia, and even a tiny bit of bleeding from the now completely raw, sore and swollen inner labia. It seems to be a reaction to the clotrimazole, which I plan to discontinue. I am curious about the possibility of a lactobacilli overgrowth, or cytotolytic infection, as a result of my overzealous consumption of probiotic foods. Even moreso, I am interested in finding a way to put this problem to rest! Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated.
