I have been in Iraq for 7 months and before I left, it appears I contracted an STD. Due to limited testing equipment, I have been unable to identify what I have. I have been tested for Claymidia and Gonherra. However, that's it.
My symptoms consist of a red rush on my penis. I started noticing it 3 weeks after intercourse. It spread from the head, to the shaft. It looks like a mild case of acne on my penis. The bumbs are not large of filled with any kind of fluid. They are most noticible when I have an erection. Also, I had a yellowish disharge coming from my penis. That has gone away. I still get a clear disharge almost daily. I observed my urine one day and was terrified. It looked like I pissed a small ball of tiny white strings, wrapped together. That's the best way I can describe it. I do this when I do not urinate frequently. Like in the mornings, etc. It doesn't hurt when I urinate, however, after I masterbate, a stinging sensation sometimes happens.
At the same time I noticed the rash, I also noticed what appears to be little white heads on the inside of my upper lip. They now cover the entire inside of my upper lip.
I am to embarrased to tell someone, and with limited testing avalibable, I thought I would give this a shot. Anything you can recomend and tell me would be helpful. Thank you
Gonorrhea can present with penile lesions as well as oropharyngeal lesions. I would repeat testing for this - either with a urine test or urethral swab. The urine can also be sent out for urinalysis and culture to exclude other infections.
You can be empirically treated for STDs with a combination of Azithromycin/doxycycline and Cipro to cover both chlamydia and gonorrhea.
Prostatitis can also be considered. A thorough digital rectal exam can be done, and any prostatic secretions be sent off for culture.
I would also have these lesions looked at by a urologist for further evaluation.
These options can be discussed with your personal physician.
Followup with your personal physician is essential.
