Lump on penis due to reaction to ketofan. No relief from telefast, zyrtec and hydrocorisone shots. Advice

Hello, Dr. I am a 22 year old male. I recently got married and I've been having excessive sex with my wife. Maybe one or twice a week, but 5-6 times on each of those days. About 2 weeks ago, I had a gum inflammation so I took an anti inflammatory ketoprofen drug called "Ketofan". I had sex with my wife on that same day i started taking the drug. After intercourse, I noticed a lump on the shaft of my penis. It is skin-colored and painless. I went to see a dermatologist and he told me that it is an allergic reaction from the ketofan. So, he had me take two anti-allergic drugs - telefast and zyrtec. I had abstained from sex for about 5 days while taking the meds, and the lump got smaller. however, I had sex later and it got bigger again. I went to see my dermatologist again and he was surprised that it still didn't go away, so he prescribed some hydrocortisone called Solu cortef (shots) to take for three consecutive days. I took it the first day and today is the second, but nothing changed. I am thinking it might be blockage in the lymph channels of the shaft because there is a hard vain along the shaft as well. Please advise further. Thank you

Hello, thanks for posting the query to H.C.M.C.
You took ketoprofen for gum inflammation.
You noticed a lump( swelling) over the shaft of penis and dermatologist told you that it is due to side effects of ketoprofen & you took some anti-allergic drugs and according to you size of lump reduces ( decrease).
Again you uses some corticosteroids creams but no relief.
I would like to say one thing very clearly that this lump was not due to any side effects of ketoprofen as side effects of ketofan are
rectal irritation,
drowsiness etc .

No any allergic reaction at all.
So question doesn't arise of lump formation due to this drug.
Now lump is there , so we have to find out the cause of this disease.
So first of all consult another doctor with open mind and discuss , why not a sex related disease.
Please take care at once before any thing wrong.
Regards. Dr. HET

Hello, as I have answered this question just few minute ago but I myself is not satisfied with this answer because due to anxiety in my mind I don't want to answer because that answer is bitter and require some facts.
Please consider about the chancroid as H/O patient is suggestive of papule, pustule, till no ulcer because of some medicines have taken.
Also note down , if there is involvement of inguinal lymph nodes till now.
Thanks , have a good luck. Dr. HET
