On January 16th, after popping an ingrown hair on my shaft, I developed fever/chills overnight, and my penis shaft swelled up tremendously in a few hours (all symptoms of cellulitis
). No sores, just swollen. Doctor said he was certain it was cellulitis
, and prescribed antibiotics which fixed everything.
After doing some reading, I found that cellulitis can affect people with HIV because of their weakened immune system. I guess it is the timing of all this that has me scared.
