Have you considered it may be from an insect bite that has transmitted a localized virus? I know we have such diseases in the US...I'm afraid I'm no expert on this subject though...
Thank you for you time and for reading my story. I had considered that and no where on my body did I have any bites...
Since you said you are not an expert on this subject, could you please recommend to me what forum/Doctor/natural healer I could speak to?
Any advise would be very helpful... some days I feel as though I'm going crazy and I'll never get better. I've been taking xanax to stop the anxiety I get from the extreme recent gum pain and daily penile pain. I do my best to coup with it, but somedays my brain runs away from me and I start to lose hope.
I appreciate your time Medicmommy.... As you do say ((((((((((((Hug))))))))))))))) to you as well. :)
I had a bit of time to see if I could find any information on the symptoms you listed...I know you've been tested for a few of these already, but here's what I found...Genital herpes...Sjogren's syndrome, and Behcets...Behcet's seems to fit the best...I hope these help...There is quite a bit of information on the internet about this -see if it fits your symptoms...Also, are you having night sweats?...Best wishes...
I to experience something similar to this. I have discoloration of my penis, skin changes on the shaft, small pimple like bumps arond the head (pearly penile papules) which a doctor says is not infectious and just something that comes from me being uncircumsized, and newly a small tounge like flap on the left side of my head the inside of it that a emergency room doctor told me not to worry about it is just from mucous buildup and would go away. All uralysis came back negative and the doctor suggested I go to a urology just to explain the burning/pain/discomfort in my groin area. I am 22 but at age 17 I was told the burning and discomfort come from a disease I remeber to be called interstital cystits. Which is having no lining around your bladder thus allowing the acids to flow throw the penis burning the inside. I was prescribed a medicine called elmiron to stop this and I believe it worked at the time again i was only 17 shortly after I stopped taking the meds due to lack of insurance.....I am still confusesd that I have no stds and can have such abnormalities with my penies....I am god blessed I am healthy but would love a more clear explanation on these differences that I have compared to others.
Of course, it could be a lot of things, but as I'm experiencing a similar issue, I've narrowed it down to, most possibly, two scenarios, with the first one being a simple swelling based on abraison, where blood vessels were ruptured, resulting in a quick and intense swelling. The second possible cause would be a skin reaction to the lubricant you are using to masturbate with.
After thinking I had some **** tumor, and started writing out my will and testement (sorry, I couldn't resist), I discovered that every time I would use a dimethicone based moisturizer and protectant prior to exercise and after sex, my newly irritated member would really blow up. When I would use glycerin, sweet oil, zinc oxide or any other type moisturizer, I would not experience the intense swelling. Therefore, while it's possible overuse is causing my imflamation, my current guess is the dimethicone, which is a silicon based skin protectant. I've been using it for a while because my skin chaffes due to friction from intense aerobic exercise, my fondness for sex and quite possibly chemical irritants from the detergent used by my cleaners. I have very sensitive skin throught my body, and after being tested for just about every STD I could think of, I'm left to doing trial and error.
You did the right thing by going to the doctor. While my mysterious moth ball of my penile mucus membrane is dynamic in size, it usually does not hurt. Only when the dimethicone has been placed over the skin, and it has all day to block the pores from being able to breath. Especially the mucus membrane of the inner foreskin, which is perhaps the most sensitive area of our manhood. Pain in your testicles could indicate an inflamation in your epididemus (I spelled it wrong), a back flow caused by twisted blood vessles, or a ruptured vein that has caused lymph to surround the area, blood to clot, and a log jam, so to speak, making for one uncomfortable afternoon.
Sorry for the long response, but you sound very health conscious, and you are ok to have sensitive skin. Look for lubricants that don't have heavy petrolium derrived chemicals, or switch the ones around until you find something your skin can agree with. Also, in the shower, be sure and avoid certain types of soap that can also irritate your penis. Especially if you've just worked it out with friction from your hand....lubricant or not. Glycerin is a good choice. Collagen is expensive, but you can try putting some of that on at night, and allowing it to help restore normal skin function. Aloe, Vitamin E and other organic cremes can also help replenish vital moisture to your male member, as well as protect it during its "off hours" from abrasion thinks to our fancy underwear.
At any rate, good luck, and thanks for coming forward and presenting your situation.
