Avatar n tn Lack of aeration and irritation because of smegma and discharge surrounding the glans penis causes inflammation and edema. More common in uncircumcised males. It is usually caused by poor hygiene in uncircumcised men. The inflammation can be due to infection, harsh soaps, or failure to properly rinse soap off while bathing. One common organism associated with balanitis is yeast known as Candida albicans.
Avatar f tn This is not an std issue because he is negative, you should try the dermatology forum or men's health forum. We focus on std's and cannot guess at what causes bumps because many many things not std related can cause bumps.
Avatar n tn I'm in my late 30's and in good health and I'm very clean! Hygenically, and otherwise. That in mind here are my questions. 1) For many years I have had a problem with pimple like growth's on the underside of my glans. This occurs between the foreskin and the actual head of the penis. And it only happens on the base of the glans--almost directly underneath the bottom part of the slit in my penis.
Avatar m tn Since you know it's not a herpes issue, you should probably be posting it on a dermatology forum or even a men's health forum instead. Good luck and I hope you find out what is really going on.
Avatar m tn Try posting in Men's Health, this has nothing to do with a STD.
Avatar f tn Psoriatic acne is a collection of small, painless, salmon-colored pimples that appear on the back and chest, then the legs and thighs, and sometimes on the face, ears, and scalp. Children often get psoriatic acne around the anus, causing intense itching. This form of acne usually occurs after an infection. The microorganism can be a fungus, such as yeast (Candida) or Malassezia (the fungus that causes seborrheic dermatitis) or a bacterium, especially Staphylococcus aureus.
Avatar n tn If you're taking this pill just to loose weight, and not for a health reason, you should stop taking it, and see that if you keep eating healthy, and walking, you'll still loose! And BTW, taking this pill 10 mins before a meal to help with your appetite is crazy! All diet pills tell you to take it 30min.s before each meal.. b/c it takes 30 min.s to start working...10 min.s? that pill isn't doing anything for you when you're eating!
Avatar m tn They might be fordyce spots which are normal. Try posting in the teen or men's health forums.
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
Avatar m tn If you haven't had sex - even oral sex - you can't have an std. You might want to post in men's health for more answers.
Avatar n tn I woke up that way this morning, I guess when the doc increased my meds it made me feel like this. I never get pimples and today you could play connect the dots on my face. (I mean never get pimples, No lie) Well I hope I made you smile. Don't be sad. Hang in there and I'll talk to you soon.
Avatar n tn The pimples or foreskin did not hurt or itch at all.I grabbed the head of my penis and stretch it trying to get a better look at the pimples, and one of them appeared to ooze a drop of clear watery fluid.It then looked like an ulcer.The following day still no pain, and the bumps look flat when you look at them on the side, but raised when you look at them from the top.That day i put some monistat cream on it. it burned from time to time through the day.not drastic, but i felt something there.
Avatar m tn I went to a clinic that specialized in men's health a few days ago, and the doctor told me that he was almost certain that it is folliculitis, but could not say definitively without a blood test. A few other notes: I am currently traveling South America, and will be getting a blood test next week. I had not had sex for four months before this encounter. One day after I cut the pimple while shaving, I was in transit for a full 24 hours before reaching my next location.
Avatar n tn I had an anonymous, unprotected oral sex experience on Wednesday May9. It was at a men's movie theatre and I don't know if he was up to anything even moments before our encounter. It was of very short duration, he did not orgasm. He looked/smelled clean but it was dark and he had dark skin. He also went down on me for an even shorter duration (about 3 bobs). 1) I've heard you say oral sex is "low risk" several times on this board, but does that hold true to giving and recieving?
Avatar n tn As this was my primary concern, however, I have seen my GP (very experienced) and a Men's Sex Health Clinic (obv. experienced) during these bumps...both of whom confidently stated this is not herpes...GP saying bumps are non-specific, Clinic saying (different time) looked maybe bacterial,fungal>prescribed Fucidin. The GP also didn't have an answer for the testicle pain. Exam normal. What else...I have had pain in the testicle with no bumps and also vice versa.
Avatar n tn Hello, I read on another men's health site that these bumps are overactive sebaceous cysts because I had gotten one too about 2 weeks ago and it initially was very sore but the soreness went away on the base of my penis but the red/purple bump was still there. I am not and havent yet been sexually active so I ruled out STD's.
Avatar f tn i went to our schools health center and the doctor said they were probably bug bites, but i just played a football game and wasnt in my bed at all and i noticed another little red bump. i do have neosporin which i rub on it... and i also read in another similar case on this website that the person had a cold while having the bumps. i do to have a cold. any connection between them?
Avatar f tn I have not changed shampoos in 15 years (I alternate head and shoulders and Pantene). I have never had any problems with oily skin or oily hair ever. I wash my hair daily and condition. I have not changed my daily regimen in 2 years One thing I have tried was applied Shower to Shower powder to my hair before going to bed and washed out in the morning (not the sexiest looking thing at night but it helps). It drastically reduced the oil, but came back 2 days later.
Avatar n tn and at first i didnt know what they were..so i would squeeze them just thinking maybe they were like pimples or something?..and then white pus would come out and then blood..but it would still be big, or sometimes nothing would come out..it would just stick further out in the skin. And right now i have about 5 or 6..not very big..maybe sizes of a pea or something? Ive always wanted to know what they are but I always forget to ask...or i dont think they are that big of a deal.
Avatar n tn I know this is a really embarrassing topic for women; and that so many of us are living with it and no solution only cements that fact. Let me clear up a few things here: 1) The most pivotal piece of information here, as mentioned by one smart mama above, is what the actual smell is~ different odors signify different issues. So it is important that you confirm the unfortunate odor fits with the diagnosis.
Avatar n tn I have the exact same symptoms you all are describing. I am an 23 year old male in good health and I was diagnosed with RRMS (Relaps-Remitting MS) when I was 18. I talked to my doctor and nurse and the sensitivity is a part of an MS relapse. I am not suggesting that everyone who experiences this feeling has MS, but it could be a possibility. It could be a result of a number of things.
Avatar n tn I have some blood problems that I never linked to the lesions, but now I have to rethink it. I think I may start keeping a health diary to track my foods and activites to see if there is a corrilation. Thanks. Yes Autumnharmony, you are not alone.
Avatar n tn //www.mayoclinic.com/health/jock-itch/DS00490/DSECTION=treatments-and-drugs To start, look at the treatments listed, but don't forget to look through the prevention page as well since these tips are also useful in conquering this troublesome issue. It is important to stay clean and dry, wear loose clothing (especially underwear), and to treat both partners thoroughly.
Avatar n tn And I don't wear contacts either. And the itching drives me crazy! My health insurance doen't cover dermatology :( so I'm trying to solve the mystery myself. Any help would be WONDERFUL!!!! Thanks in Advance!
Avatar f tn After reading every single comment, i used dish soap, whihc helped a bit but i coudl feel it there still, i bought sauve claifyer used listerine, that helped a bit the third day i boguht jojobo shampoo at the health food store and its gone, i think its a combination problem of clogged pores and certain products that clogged it, I will however never use nice and easy hair color again no matter what, i think that was the root of the problem and i think the jojoba balanced my hair back to normal.
Avatar f tn ( I too have been diagnosed with BRP, and the only relief is from ice--but that feels so hopeless to me. Are there any other cures/solutions? I can not bear the thought of having to endure this torture the rest of my life. Makes me want to cry!
Avatar n tn Let`s stop with that porn, that`s now what we need....we need our health and imagination and I am now really determined to quit and return to nature.
Avatar n tn i have had 3 iuis and going for my 4 today, with the other 3 even though i wasnt pregnant i had very sore breasts and felt very bloted i learned after having so many iuis to expect that i guess that comes from the hcg shot, i never was nausiuos though,that could be a good sign some woman know it the minute they become pregnant,and you could be one of them,i know the two week wait can be unbearable,but try and hang in there and try not to take a hpt test for a few more days,unlike i did and get a
