Penis skin is tender

Patient: Hi I had a question about my penis. On Wednesday the 12 th I kinda had oral sex but not completion it only lasted about 10 seconds before I realized what was going on and told her to leave. I showered right after and then the next day I showered when I got home and had the bright idea to put soft scrub with bleach on my genitals. I went to doctor on Sunday but didn’t think to tell them I put soft scrub on genitals and he said it don’t look like a std just a little red I have not bumps or sores and it’s not really red any more it just feels sensitive. I put neosporin on it it feels good for the day but if I put lotion on it it burns for a few after any ideas did the bleach mess me up or any ideas what cause of this

 

 

Symptoms: Tenderness slightly red no bumps sores hole head shift and testicles

 

 

Doctor: The redness or soreness on penis is due to contact dermatitis to the bleach or scrub. It mostly could not be STD based o n the history provided. You must be abstinent from sex for few days and apply soothing lotion like calamine lotion, till the soreness reduces. Consult a physician, if pain increases or redness increases.

Any thoughts.on how long a burn from bleach would take to recover or what is going on

Guest: Why would you put bleach on your body? I understand you were freaking out about an STD. Make better choices about who you let near your body. 🙂
