Well I would like to start off by saying thank you to whoever reads this and provides some help and guideance.
In August of 2008, I had sex with a female who I had dated for a few months. After about 2 weeks after having sex, I developed a small hard lump (approx. 1/4 inch) at the base of my penis near my scrotum. The area surrounding it was very painful and felt like a burning sensation and constatnt pain. After approx. 1 month the lump went away but the pain has stayed. I have been tested for both types of the herpes virus and every other STD known to man. Everything ca,e back negative, The last test for HSV 1 and 2 was in July 2009 and still negative for both.
I have been to several doctors (family doctor, urologist, infectious disease and a dermatologist). The infectious disease doctor thought it may by HPV. When I saw the Dermatologist, he said that HPV does not cause pain and he didnt think it was HPV.
I still have redness above my penis in the pubic hair region and sometimes I get small red marks in the pubic hair region that sometime form a head and scab over and other times they just stay pink for a few days and they disappear.
I also have these tiny deep red marks (almost like a blood blister, but really small) on my thighs and inner thighs.
Like I said, the pain is constant and sometimes I get a shooting pain down my penis shaft, I have been taking Famvir for 60 days now and in the beginning, I thought it was helping (may have just been my psychie). I have also been on several doses of antibotics and in the beginning of taking them, they seem to work (maybe my psychie again).
Please help and I you need further clarification on anything, I will be sure to update this.
