I feel an itching sensation in my pennis area, is it genital herpes ?

feel an itching sensation in my pennis area,is it genital herpes I am an unmarried male. I had an sexual intercourse with a lady almost 3 years back. I was not aware of this lady's past sexual history. I had used condom during the intercourse, but unfortunately due to wrong usage while trying to enter into her vagaina the condom got broken. Immediately i had stopped the intercourse and used another new condom for the intercourse. B'coz of breaking of the condom, may be for a fraction of a second/ or for a minute my pennis might have contacted her vigina. After this instance i started to feel an itching sensation, at times, in my pennis area, and the urine also is in light yelloish tint sometimes. I had consultated a urologist in my area and he had given me some medicines. During the course of the medicine itching was not there and a sort of dryness was felt in the pennis area. What kind of infection is this? Is it genital herpes? Is it cureable. Please help me with your valuable advise.

Consult to the urologist again and request him/her for laboratory tests regarding Sexually Transmitted Infections. If you find any type of infection in reports then get proper treatment. Always avoid sexual intercourse out of wedlock.

I have what look like sores,ingrown hairs on my pelvic area. They re about two inches above my penis. They do not hurt or itch and they have been scaling a bit. They do not seem to get any better or worse and I ve had them over two weeks. They appeared the night after sexual contact. Is this Genital Herpes? I can t find any pictures that looks like what I have. I have made a Doctor s Appointment, but I want to be prepared for what the results will be.

good morning doctor, I am edwin from Australia. I have a concern regarding something. I have being recently diagnosed with herpes simplex (genital) the doctor prescribed valacyclovir 500 mg BD i am also taking medication to boost the immune system. all the blisters that i had around my anus are not as bad as they were two weeks ago when they appeared the first time . the doctor told me to take that antiviral for 10 days, i have already finished it but although the blisters seem to be healing well, I am still feeling the tingling and itchyness around the anal and perineum are. I still also feel it in my penis, scrotum and sometimes in the face, i put zovirax when i feel it around the lips. anyway, should i go back to the doctor for more valacyclovir ? i still have 17 tablets left. do you think i should try another antiviral ? is ti normal to still feel that tingling sensation and itchtyness after 10 days of being on the medication? thank you very much for your help doctor, i really appreciate it

Hi I have been diagnosed with genital herpes (from oral sex) and am currently taking an antivirul drug 3x a day for 7 days. I wanted to know if I could use Vagisil to reduce the itching and burning sensation caused by the sores or am I slowing down the healing process?

im not sure if i have herpes or a yeast infection i have had a dry throat for almost 5 weeks now, i often almost constantly have weak calves and sometimes my forearms also feel weak. i also get back, neck and chest (pecks) pain. at this stage i have no blisters or sores anywhere though i have had a small cluster of tiny white dots on my lips for almost this whole time. i also get an ichty anus and have mild constipation. it doesn t hurt when i urinate though my penis does sometimes randomly itch and sting. im scared and i cant find a defining factor on the internet because both have similar symptoms. i have had blood test for herpes but i know that was pointless because that was only two weeks after possible expossure.

My husband has sores very similar to herpes on his penis, testicles & groin area...he has seen an infectious disease dr. who thought it was a fungus. He has treated him w/anti-fungal cream but it is still here after 4 1/2 months. A culture of 6 scrapings have come up w/nothing...I do not feel this dr. has much concern or interest in his case??? We are frustrated & completely befuddled. He is 56 yrs old I am 50 (going through menopause-for about 3 yrs). In the past 2 yrs during sex there has been a dozen times that I have experienced very painful sensation to the clitoris during cunnilingus (feels like a razor blade cutting)? The dr. says it s not related. He says my husband s condition is not contagious even tho he doesn t know what is happening. This is the second outbreak, 1st one we thought was a herpes outbreak, that was last fall. But now this second is 4 months going strong? The outbreak looks mimics herpes in sores turning pustular then breaking open, very painful then healing over & the skin sloughing off...but it s ongoing! Please any information is greatly appreciated.

Dear Dr. Srinivasan

Name - Nitin

Age - 36

I have had recurring problem of red spots (isloated) on my penis head for 3-4 years. I have consulted many docs with varied diagnosis.

I was single then and made to believe it was fungal, it comes on its own and have been getting treated accordingly by a dermatologist.

Recently i got married and again recurringly had red infection on my penis. Along with this, my wife also developed infecion and was put under Gynea treatment, again for fungal infection and Fas Kit prescribed to both along with aplication of fungal infection creams. For the reason not transfering infection bw me and wife, we have stopped having intercourse (unprotected) however my wife was ok but I kept developing these red spots/ infection.

However on repeated occurances we consulted a different dermatologist and he suggested Herpes but blood test reports ruled out. However he insisted that indeed it is Herpes and sometimes the medical reports do not show the same. I was put on Famtrax 250 for 1 week along with application of topical anti-biotic(fusidic acid cream). The red spots kept going and coming but doc clamed it is Herpes geting cured and that takes time to cure as in past i have been exposed to steriod in form of anti-fungal creams. Post a week of Famtrax, i was put on antialergic and anti-biotic cream for a week.

the red spots have gone but now there is recurring white spots (small pimple types) which come and go. On showing to doc, he said its miliaria of penis and common and due to non drying of the area. I was asked to take urine test (culture and routine) and culture cam normal. Routine test pointed to some epidrmal cells (UT infection, I have mild recurring burning sensationtoo) and doc asked me to take Disodium Hydrogen Citrate (Alkasol) for a week. I am currently on Alkasol and Antialergic.

But the white spots are coming and going everyday still. I am not sure if im cured yet but doc says im fully cured but the white spots can be ignored and i can have unprotected sex with my wife.

Problem is i want to start a family soon but am confused due to various diagnosis. I do not want to pass on to my wife and abstain from sex.

Please suggest cure for white spots.

i wll be very greatful.

Kind regards
