Penis head redness

Here's my problem, and it's a long story i'm sorry.


I started fingering my girlfriend back in October of 05. I then noticed a few small skin colored bumps on my finger. Didn't do or think anything of it. We started having sex in November (with a condom). then back in february (february 4th 06) we were messing around and my penis kind of touched or went in a little bit in her vagina. the next day i noticed the part of my penis that the foreskin goes over (right before the head) was kinda red. (i'm uncirumsized) I saw a few pictures on the internet that looked like what i have and they said it was a yeast infection. got some clotrimazole and applied it and in a few days it was gone. (oh yeah and since about january of 05 i have been on antibiotics for my acne on my face and back, i read somewhere that antibiotics taken for a long period of time are bad for yeast infections)

then on saint patricks day (3-17-06) we had sex multiple times (3-4) and i received 2 or 3 blowjobs from her. then the next day after that, i noticed my testicles and just the top of my penis head was red. i put the clotrimazole on it again (it was a 7-day treatment) and this time it seemed to do nothing. so i just left it alone. for about 2 weeks. my testicles were not red anymore. but my head was still red.

so it was about april 18th or so and i went to my dermatologist. told him about all this, and showed him and that time my penis looked ok. like whenever i get cold i'm pretty sure my penis just looks normal. so that's how it looked when i saw the doc. i told him the clotrimazole wasn't working anymore, so he prescribed me some cream CPD-Econazole/desonide AAQS. in the meantime my girlfriend got monistat and used that for the 3-day treatment used that until the bottle was almost gone. i would apply it all over my head and then sit down in my computer chair naked for a few hours every night (with a towel down so nothing would rub off.) This didn't do anything at all. besides make my penis peel, which i thought was helping, but actually didn't do anything.

Called back and told the doc this, and i asked for some pills. gave me a 7 day treatment (1 pill a day) of fluconazole (generic for diflucan) the last day i took this was on may 3rd. this also did not do anything. and sometime around that time i noticed my testicles became red also.

so like a week and a half ago, i got some more of the cream that was prescription. I decided to put it on my testicles my finger and on my penis again last night. and today, my finger looks completely normal (no bumps or anything) and my balls look regular (skin color no more red). my head and the part before it was red so i put it all over my head and the part before it, and my head is still red but the other part is not.

So i'm pretty sure that this is a yeast infection (or some kind of fungal infection i guess) and the only reason it's not healing my head is because ya know your head is kind of a different than the skin of your penis. and i think that when i put the cream on, it can't get to the actual infection part of my head.

Mind you i am a very clean person, shower at least once a day, and for the past 2 years always dry off my penis very well. i dont put any soap or anything on my penis now. and now that i have this i have taken the extra step and now after a shower i use a blowdryer on my penis to make sure it is very very dry.

Anyways, my mom called her gyno and told her the story, and now on tuesday i am going to see a specialist and see what they say about this. i'll check back here after i go to the doc and keep you guys updated. (if anyone even cares)

does anyone think that this could be anything else by what i have described? like any other bacterial infections or an std? possibly herpes? my girlfriend has only had sex with 1 other person 1 time besides me, and that time was with a condom.

and one more question, is thrush, candida, yeast, monilia, and all those things, the same thing, just with a different name?

This is really effecting my life, i can't wear jeans anymore, missed out on going to the lake this weekend with all my friends because infections feed off of water and moisture. this just really sucks.

Well, sorry for the long story, i just tried to get everything out there, and thank you in advance if you have any information or advice.

Re: Penis head redness

thrush, yeast, and candida are all names for Candida Albicans.

It sounds like you are donig all the right things, even to the extent of discussuing it with your mum! A lot of guys would rather cut off their penis than talk to their parents about this kind of thing!

I think you hve been very unlucky that all this has happened, but hopefully you are on the road to recovery.

Re: Penis head redness

well... i went to a specialist last night. i told him this whole story and everything, and then he looked at it and was like "dude, what are you worrying about everything looks fine." i was kind of like "uh well what about there where it's really red?" and he just told me somethin about capillaries and it just being more red in some places. i didn't believe him i asked if it was like herpes or any other kind of infection and he said he really didn't think so. i mean since theres no bumps and it doesn't itch or anything. and he was also like things just change down there man.

i dunno, i just don't really think that's true, i know my penis hasn't always looked like this. grrr this really frustrates me.

anyways, thanks for the replies guys.
