On shaft of penis cauliflower like lesion midway down and red dots that form a v shape on the under side of the head of penis witch seem to have tunneled to underside of head Under urethra opening on both sides pigment is yellow. burning sensation constantly. Top of shaft skin is receding back and thining. Antibiotics stop burn but wont cure. Body itching all over including scalp. My skin broke out 2 years in a row durring summer time. White crust looking bumps and also raised bumps that where skin colored with no heads they stayed for a while and eventually left. My knuckle was itching and burning one day from under the skin, it ulcerated and went away.(strange) On both thumbs is a raised lession that interrupts the skin line and gives off heat. Dr say normal. My eyes have started to become brown in white parts with black specs that have blood vessels meeting them in some kind of defense.My eyes itch and nothing seems to be in them again Dr says normal but i say otherwise. I have had very small water bumps on both hand. Red spots on the bottom of feet. Both feet were peeling and a point in time. blood blister on chest and inside cheeks. Puss filled bumps in inner folds of elbows that come and go. Also on palm side of hand close to the rist there is a darkend area and water bumps come from under the skin every so often. Lymph nodes swelling in groin area including knots in between groin thy area with white stuff coming out. All 10 finger nails were brittle looking at the beginning. I have had a little rash of bumps on my ear lobe. Nothing has shown up in blood work. It seems that antibiotics are cleaning the infection from my body but needs to be handled in the primary spot of infection. This has been a 3 year struggle with no answers just being pumped with antibiotics.They are starting to say that im delusional but i need help asap. Thank you and God bless you.
