A year + ago, I was treated for warts. None noticed since then, but wanted to provide an adequate window for a reoccurance before resuming any sort of sex life.
Beginning of March - protected sex with a trusted person who believes they are STD free.
End of March, notice a few small pimples near the base that eventually pop and turn into one big popped blister looking area w/ the skin peeling a little.
By mid-April most of the shaft's skin is looking like areas of popped blisters or shallow cuts/lesions. They heal and move around to other areas on the shaft. Minor itching, no bleeding or puss or discharge of any kind. The more I touch them the more they seem to persist and move around.
Herpes blood test at end of April shows I am HSV-1 and HSV-2 negative. It was a blood test through a lab, not a doctor. By now, the worst of the symptoms had been drastically reduced. discover that men can get yeast infections and that it can be a lot like herpes. So I bought tioconazole 6.5%. Several applications later, it seemed to help with the remaining symptoms but not entirely. Presently there are still 1-2 spots that bear resemblance to the original symptoms.
Does this sound like it could've been a yeast infection or something else? Is yeast persistent?
Yeast is an uncommon cause of the sort of penile symptoms you describe--and if you had a yeast infection, it probably would have cleared up quickly and completely on tioconazole. You can rely on the negative HSV blood tests, so that's not a worry. Perhaps it's not an infection at all, but eczema, lichen planus, allergy, or any number of other skin conditions. At this point, you need to see a health care provider, perhaps a dermatologist.
