I'm having trouble determining the cause of blisters on my testicles. To recap I shaved my pubic area prior to intercourse with my steady girl and didn't shower afterwards for like 8hrs. As far as I know she has no Hx of STD. 3 days later I noticed some pimple like with ingrown hair at base of penis, I of course popped them as I normally would but broke the skin and caused an infection and was placed on Cephalexin 500mg, blood samples taken on Feb 8 by Dr. Within 1 day of antibiotics blisters formed on right side of testicle and shaft appearing as yellowish clear fluid, very sensitive, itchy, affected area is more of a group then in a cluster. Called Dr. that day and was placed on Valtrex. Dr. appointment 3 days later with results of STD blood work negative for syphilis and herpes no wound culture taken, Valtrex stopped, antibiotic continued. The infection from popping pimple ingrown hair healed but still have reaccuring blisters. Even though I shouldn't pop the blister I have been and cleaning area with betadine. Blisters are usually found upon waking up, and I have been sweating in sleep (new). 17 days later started using (Home remedy) over-the-counter Releev a cold sore/fever blister 1 day treatment, used for the last 2 days. Little to no effect on affected area. I have no flu-like symptoms, no Fever, or body aches, normal urination, lymph nodes normal, some swelling noticed after use of Releev on affected area. I'm really curious to find out what is causing these symptoms and the appropriate treatment. Thanks !
