What is happening to me?
I'm having a serious problem right now with what I believe to be candida. However, I have been unable to have any doctor tell me specifically what is wrong with me. In fact, 1 general practitioner and 1 urologist have both told me that they see nothing wrong.
First, I am a 30 year old male.
I had unprotected sex back in late October. The next day, the tip of my penis felt like it was on fire. The pain was excruciating. I dealt with it for several days until I was finally able to get an appointment with my doctor. He tested me for chlamydia and gonorrhea. They both came back negative. He gave me a pill for Trichomoniasis just in case, which I took. No change.
In December, he prescribed me 150 mg Diflucan tabs, once a week for two weeks. My symptoms largely went away towards the end of the second week but came back with a vengeance at the end of the dose. Christmas was horrible because I couldn't contact my doctor!
In January, I was prescribed 150mg of diflucan to take once per week for 4 weeks. Didn't do ANYTHING for me this time.
In February, I ended up kissing that girl again when I had been drinking (such a horrible, stupid, stupid thing to do) and something began happening in my mouth over the next week. Very dry lips, cracks in the corners, chapstick helped but this was abnormal. During this time, I've been applying lamisil and micanozole to my penis, as it's the only thing that seems to ease the pain (does a fairly good job too, btw).
March. I see a urologist, finally! He says my urine looks clean, no UTI. I have a blood test, no HIV. He says it might be prostatitis and gives me a month of Cipro. I didn't last 3 days! My lips were on FIRE! My penis began hurting so badly again. Urologist called in some Nystatin which helped immediately and he took me off the Cipro.
Then he called me in for another appointment. Cystoscopy time. He said nothing looks wrong inside. Says nothing looks wrong my penis. He's looking at me like I'm crazy. He prescribes me 200mg of Diflucan per DAY for 10 days.
Here I am on day 7. The symptoms in my penis seem better but not substantially. My oral thrush seems to be lingering as well... burning sides of mouth, white patch/streak on sides of tongue, etc.
Please... does anyone have any idea what could be happening?
