Hello Dr. I have been tested for Gonnorea, syphillis, chlamydia, and HIV an came back negative. I had a cluster of white bumps on the base of my penis an a few scatter around, the doctor check it out and said it might be an ingrown hair an to treat it with neosporian. It subsided but now there's a rash of small red bumps on the head of my penis. There's also a foul smell emanating from my crotch area? Whst could it be
Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!
If you have been tested negative for STD then it is indeed a blessing. A red rash on penis that burns or itches can be due to balanitis or inflammation of the head of the penis and/or the foreskin. This can be due to bacterial infection. It is possible that your girl friend has bacterial vaginosis which is not a STD.
The other possibility is that friction during intercourse is causing infection/inflammation for you. It can also be a chemical irritation from condoms. Fungal infection is another possibility.
Please discuss this with your doctor as treatment will depend on the cause.
Hope this helps. Take care!
