Re: Epididymitis Question/New problem

Hey thanks for the quick reply. I just noticed another small red area is now starting to appear. When I went to the doctor a week prior to my diagnosis of epidiymitis they had me take a urinalysis and it came up negative for bacteria, and still prescribed me to cipro just incase. While on it the pain got worse and I went to the ER when they diagnosed me with the condition they also gave me a urinalysis with the same results negative for bacteria and stds, and concluded that maybe the cipro took out the bacteria. I have now finished the cipro and am one and a half weeks in on doxycycline and the pain and swelling are gone from the testicle, but now left with these red irrated areas. reading up on epidiymitis it says fungal infections can cause it. It also says redness is accompanied with the fungus. are these red areas fungal related. And if so how long can this wait to be looked at. Waiting for finacial assistance and can't afford another trip to the ER. I am circumcised, but the red area is right under where the excess skin folds over. My girlfriend went to her obgyn and had a yeast infection and a bacterial infection both were cured prior to my diagnosis. Any insite would be much appreciated.
