Penis Redness/Dry/Flaking/Itching/Bumps/Burning

Hi, about a year ago I had unprotected sex with a girl like an idiot and maybe 2 days later my penis started burning on the inside all the time not just when I would pee...I went to the clinic and sure enough I had chlamydia but I was like well why is the head of my penis so sensitive I can barely walk, and red, and it burns on the inside all the time...They really had no answer for me but they gave me antibiotics for the chlamydia & the symptoms remained but when I went back to get tested again it was gone...The discharge cleared up after a while but still had the other symptoms...I'm sorry this is so long I'm at the end of how much I can stand of this and trying to be as detailed as possible to really get help because doctors won't seem to do so...Anyways I went to my family doctor and he told me that it probably just caused me to have a prostate infection because there was white blood cells in my urine but no STD after getting tested a few more times...So he felt my prostate and sure enough it was swollen so he put me on antibiotics for a month and when it didn't go away extended it for 2 more months...This did not help the slightest bit with the symptoms but when I went back the white blood cells were gone but came back on my next visit, then were gone again...I got sick of it so I haven't checked for the past 6 months or so, but anyways the sensitivity in the tip of my penis was really bothering me and it was red and what not...After a while I started getting these little flesh colored bumps near the base of my penis that would stay for months or forever I guess and wouldnt go away until I went to the derm and he told me it was molluscum & cut them off to have them tested & to get rid of it...When I went back to get the results he said he didn't remember sending anything off...Don't ya just love some doctors...I'm still getting the bumps but they don't hurt and don't really go away unless I have them removed, but they don't look like warts or anything...Sometimes they are flesh colored sometimes red, but they don't have an indented center like molluscum...I have had tons and tons of itching in the area and burning on the inside of my penis...I asked the doctor about a yeast infection because of the burning and itching and they gave me pills for it and cream which really didn't do any good...So I scratched that option a long time ago and I have been to doctors that tell me nothing seems to be wrong the bumps are normal others that tell me it's eczema, others that tell me its molluscum, others just give me steroids and tell me to come back...So obviously I don't care for doctors at all at this point...The past few months I've got 3 red spots on the base of my penis 2 of them like the size of a quarter that have a bump in or near them and the best way for me to describe it is when its dry it's extremely dry and flaky and when its moist its really red and soft and almost looks like a chemical burn blister or something but completely flat...You can see where the skin has like stretched or something because it has wrinkles in it and is very glossy...Also when I squeeze the head of my penis it's very shiny and it looks like my glands are swollen...I have no idea what to do I can't seem to work because of the burning and itching...Plus the mental part of it has made it 10x harder for me...It still burns on the inside alot but mostly the pain and discumfort is on the outside...I am almost convinced that it is yeast just because I have used stuff for virus', fungus', and bacteria...I know yeast can be resistant to treatment especially if the good bacteria in your body is killed off and your immune system is compromised...I also have had very bad bowel problems over the years where I can't go much at all and my stool is very hard and usually like small rocks...I'm almost always constipated and in pain from that & when I take laxatives or stool softeners it doesn't help all that much & makes the pain worse... I used colonix for a month and that helped me go more often but as soon as it was gone the problem came back... If it ain't hard stools and not being able to go hardly ever then it's diarrhea... My sack is also quite glossy and itchy and red alot of the time... The head of my penis is very red and almost appears to look purple underneath the bell, and looks swollen and sometimes it turns white or a different color than the rest of the skin... I'm very sorry this is so long and so random with horrible grammar but I am almost to the end of how much I can take of this so I wanted to make sure and get everything out...Thank you for taking the time to read it & I look forward to any replies

Hey Eli, old thread I know, but I have some experience here.

I'm no doctor, but from the way you describe those bumps, they sound like hpv warts.

Get it looked at.

Re: Penis Redness/Dry/Flaking/Itching/Bumps/Burning

Pretty old thread but ill give this a shot, you describe pretty much everything i have. I had unprotected sex with a woman two months ago but at the same time i was taking antihistimines (Zyrtec allergy tablets) which i had really bad side affects from and after both these events my penis hurts after urinating and skin flakes at the base of the penis. Its pretty concerning stuff, i hate antibiotics but if someone knows how to cure something like that or at least tell me what the hell it is it would be appreciated. I would have thought this would have been a more common problem with Men, did you ever end up gettings answers mate?
