How to treat purpuric rashes on penis and chest pain?

Hi.I am a 23 year old male, about 5' 11" and weight approx 11.5 stone. I have developed a pupuric rash on my penis and my feet about 2 weeks ago. I am otherwise healthy although I have been suffering chest pains for the last 4 months. I had a chest x-ray which was clear and the doctor prescribed me painkillers and said that it was muscular and I would have to live with it until it goes on it's own accord. I went to see my gp about the rash last week. He didn't say anything about what it may be and has referred me to see a dermatologist. Do you have any ideas what this may be?

Hi,

If you had unprotected sex - need to rule out sexually transmitted infection.

If not it can be due to fungal infection/ bacterial infection - local application of antifungal / antibiotic can help you.

For chest pain - whats your Blood pressure, did you take a ECG . was it normal?

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
