I am a 36 y/o male with very discreet, mild, warmth/burning of the skin bilaterally in the inguinal/suprapubic region. The symptoms have waxed and waned for the past 4-5 weeks. Symptoms initially began after an incident at a bar (I am a heterosexual married male, I believe I was drugged by an unknown male. I woke up in a bathroom stall with this male performing oral sex on me, I got him off me and left). Within 12 hours I took Azithromycin 1 gram, Cifixime 400mg, and within 24hours 2.4m units of pen G. The burning sensation came on about 4 days later and was fairly intense for 3-4 days and then slowly subsided. Associated symptoms included left-sided low back pain and tingling/burning sensation in my upper inner thighs that began after the burning skin sensation. I tested negative for RPR, HSV 1/2, GC/Chlamydia (by urinalysis) and a culture was negative as well. My PSA was normal at .62. I have not tested for HIV, but I know the incubation period makes it prohibitive to test this early and their are no documented cases of transmission from receptive oral sex. I have no dysuria, urethral drainage/irritation, testicular/scrotal pain or any other symptom that would suggest an STD. The only thing I have noticed is that 1-2 hours after I ejaculate the sensation intensifies slightly than goes back to its normal 1-2/10 pain level. I have tried cipro 500mg bid x 10, doxycycline 100mg bid x 10 simultaneously which seemed to help, but then the sensation came back. NSAIDSs also relieve the symptoms. Is this a possible inflammation from all the antibiotics I've taken or a virus? Any other tests I could have to figure this out? Stop the antibiotics and wait and see? Take Motrin for the rest of my life? Please help.
