For the past 4 days, my blood pressure has been running anywhere from 130/95 to 120/102. My blood pressure is usually normal (typically 120/78 or so). I have high cholesterol and a family history of heart disease & am 51. What I don t understand is the numbers being close together. My last reading was 119/102.

It started with an odd itch on one side of my penis. Persisted for 2-3 days...itched only the odd time. I checked my penis,...where the itch was turned out to be reddish and seemed like I had a problem. This occurred in the beginning about 2 days after having sex. I self treated with a healing cream for a couple days which didn t help, so switched to aloe vera gel for a couple days. The problem was getting worse. Went to a clinic. Doc took a swab, and I had to get a prescription... (30) Fucidin H 2% & 1%. Fusidic Acid & HC Acetate,...a cream in a tube. That s what it says on the tube. Doc said try it for 30 days and if not better go see him again. I asked the Doc how I would get whatever it was I had . He answered her . Today, I get a call from some gal at the clinic that told me I had Light A Penis Strep and that it should clear up in a couple days...it has been getting better. Redness has lessened, as well as swelling and itch. I asked what it was caused from...she said she didn t know. My question is this : How would I get Strep on my penis ?? Thank You , Norm.

Dear Sir, My husband had a boils and itching problem in under arms and chest. After consulting a doctor he took Momentasone+Fusidic acid combination cream along with Atarex and Amoclav tablets. After this course his boils are cured. In subsequent follow-up visit, doctor told us to use LS dew soap and dusting powder Absorbant and Fudic cream to cure rest of the boils remained. Now he is fine and does not have boils, However he has a itching problem on chest. May be due to sweating problem or what he cant even sleep at night due to it. also skin become dark and thick in that area. he took atarex but could not effective in itching at night again doctor has told to stop using that dusting powder and Fudic cream as skin becomes dry by using powder thick due constant itching on that and suggested HHzole cream and Nutex tablet. However, after taking its first dose, it does not have any effect on itching. Also we dont understand why doctor has given Nutex and HHzole cream though she said my husband does not have fungal infection. Kindly suggest for this itching problem
