Oh yeah I forgot to add, it does not itch and never has. And I've tried all the anti-fungal creams to no avail.
I have almost the same problem man I don't get it. Went into urgent care and they told me they were 80% sure it was ring worm or athletes feet. Using over the counter anti fungal and it sure as hell hasn't made a difference.
For your symptoms, lichen planus should be ruled out. Lichen planus is an inflammatory disease that affects the skin, penis and the oral mucosa, and presents itself in the form of papules(flat spots) or rashes . Lacy streaks is a characteristic of this disease. It is an itchy papular eruption characterized by its violaceous color
Treatment is available only on prescription and consists mainly of steroids, retinoids, hydroquinone and phototherapy.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Thank you for your response Bhupinder. I had posted a picture up of my glans and the inflamed skin on it which may have assisted in diagnosing the condition, but someone reported it and MedHelp took it down. I have seen quite a few other genital pictures on this site from people like me trying to get help and they decided to take mine off? Whatever.
The more I research my sypmtoms the more I am convinced it is either Lichen Planus, or Psoriasis. Both of which people claim that Elidel or Protopic has helped them. I think I am experiencing what they call post-inflammatory pigmentation among other things...which would explain the color changes in the glans. I will indeed keep you posted, and I hope I can get help so that others with a similar problem can more accurately diagnose.
same symptoms here. tested negative on everything. Doc believes just based on visual that it is Lichen Planus. Gave me some steroid cream that helped but not completely. Mine did happen to show up 3 months after a wild 3some. But again, I was tested negative on everything and Lichen Planus is not supposed to be transmittable. would love to get it figured out. I also started having problems with throat inflamation and silent acid reflux )(LRS)
Had the same thing, used calamine lotion on penis head for around a week and it had completely gone. 3 weeks later it started to come back so now I use it before bed or before work and clean and redo every 4 to 6 hours.
