28 yo male: I have a problem that i've been dealing with for over a decade, during which time it has never improved or changed at all. I'm hoping that someone might be able to shed some light on the root cause of a basket of symptoms that none of the dozen or so doctors have ever been able to correctly diagnose and cure. All of these symptoms presented themselves within 24 hours of a sexual encounter when I was 17:
initial cancre on underside of shaft, which left a scar, and clamminess in surrounding area
innocuous raised bumps on underside of glans
swollen glands at hip-flexers and sore muscles surrounding the area
soreness in pelvic bones
occasional pain in urination and split stream
redness at tip of glans after ejaculation
no discharge, but a yellowed ejaculate
over the years, I have been prescribed and taken huge doses of every antibiotic on the market, none of which have ever yielded any results whatsoever.
I took the trichomoniasis medication about 8-10 years ago. Not sure which one, though.
I also took acyclovir which made the yellowness in the ejaculate disappear.
I've been told by every doctor that i've seen that these symptoms were transmissible, and i've never transferred anything to subsequent partners.
Again, i'm hoping someone may be able to place the symptoms and steer me in a new direction in solving this, thank you.
I have a similar problem. About 3 days after a sexual encounter, I had 4 chancres which looked like syphilis, no blister and circular scattered at the base of the under shaft. It was painless and shallow in the skin. I applied neosporin and they went away in a week. A few days later it came back in various other areas on the shaft. Its stages were:
1. A red irritated dot on skin 2. Progressed to a dark-red circular scabbish crackling of the skin, looked like syphilis 3. Slow healing rate, three weeks later, as it tries to heal, the scar remains and is dark-red with minor "pinhole" cracks in it.
Three weeks later I went to the doctor, took a syphilis test, with normal results. I took doxycycline for a week as it seemed to be trying to heal, and eventually the dark scars turned to normal skin. A week later the last chancre that formed before came back, so I immediatly took a 2 week doxycycline med and got a herpes test. The test came back normal and after the 2 week treatment, they still remain and now over three weeks my under shaft has a 3/4 inch diameter dark-red circle of seemingly scar tissue with little pin holes in them. Ive stopped treating the problem and it seems to be healing at a rediculously slow pace, almost like it stopped. When I pour alcohol on it, its has a 8 second delay before I feel a slight pain. I think another patch of it is forming on the shaft and I am getting fed up. Anyone have any experience with such problems? Since the 3 doctors have no answers for me and are suggesting I have a biopsy (removed skin analysis....I dont want them carving into my tool leaving scars)
