Can hive breakout spread to penis and cause strep-throat?

I m Mark! Age: 31 5:8 150 lbs. As a boy used to suffer from itchy-blisters all over my feet and uncommon sore throat irritations. These symptoms went away as I was growing up..., till recently came back all over my body now that I m 31. Was just wondering... I was recently diagnosed with hives on certain parts of my body such as fingers, arms, belly, back of my body etc... My dermatologist did a bio-lab test to find out what it was. It came back to be hives. So I guess I have had hives all of my life... Moving on... Now: Can hives spread to head of penis (cause blisters on that area) and or cause strep-throat? Are those two even related to the hives problem or is it something else such an STD infection? Yes, I m sexually active and I m very concerned about it... Note: My physician run blood tests on me to check for any STD infection and or HIV. Results come back negative all the time; but those little red spots/blisters on the head of my penis come and go back from time to time and the strep-throat problem does the same even after taking antibiotics. (AMOXICILLIN 875MG) Plz. I need a second opinion or advice... I would really appreciate your help. Anybody... Thanks Mark.

hello, yes that condition is associated with Lyme disease. when you have lyme disease for a long time your immunity tends to drop.this would leads to other oppotunistic infections also. those multiple infections of bugs would cause this black specks like pigmentation occuring whole body. you havent mentioned other symtoms. fatigue, deprssion, bodyaches and pains, watery eyes etc.
this condition can be treated but length of drug course would depend on individual factors. if you havent still met your GP regarding your skin condition you should.thank you

My daughter tested negative for strep throat 10 days ago. We went out of town 2 days later, my daughters fever went up and later broke out in hives. A doctor prescribed amoxacillin which did not help, in fact her fever got worse and the hives spread all over her body by this time. Yesterday I took her back to her pediatrician and again a strep throat test was done. Only this time the test came out positive for strep. Arithomysin (Z pack) was prescribed. Her appetite and spirit has gotten better, but her fever continues to be present. The fever is not as high it ranges between 100.6 to 101. Why is this still happening???

My husband just had shoulder surgery last Wednesday and came down with strep throat five days later. He is complaining that his tounge is more painful then his throat, it is splotchy white and almost bleeding. Is it just the infection spreading? He isn t on antibiotics. Could it be something else?

I have recently been diagnosed with strep throat and I am on antibiotics and getting better. However I just had my first BM in several days and there was a deep green mucus in my stool unlike anything i have ever seen before. Should I be worried? Could the infection in my throat spread to other parts of my body?

hello and thanks for the help. age 17 and 145 lbs i have never had a severe illness so im the average healthy teen. sunday i notice a swelling around my neck under my chin.(most likely swollen lymph nodes. i did a little research) monday i felt a sore throat and the swelling increased by tuesday i had a very bad sore throat. sleeping was bad, woke up multiple times sweating profusely and with an UNBEARABLY sore throat. wednesday i knew i had to see a doctor. she said my glands were swollen and prescribed me with Amoxicillin and Clavulanate Potassium tablets. they kind of helped but i was still very sore in the throat and the same swelling. today i woke up and it was just as unbearable, i got hall s cough drops and they helped a little. as the day went on i felt major throat improvement to where i could actually eat but still a swollen gland, about the same size as before. now soreness is back but it is actually bearable. I have a feeling tonight will be just as bad as the past 2, any suggestions to help? Also could i possibly have lymphoma? I did smoke cigarettes daily but i quit 2 days ago. I just want to know what i have and sorry about this whole paragraph but i really appreciate the help:)
