Patient :The head and rim of my penis has been red, irritated, full of bumps and sore for about 10 months. It looks more irritated and feels more sore when erect and after intercourse. Dermatologist and urologist said nothing is wrong, but it is still sore and bumpy. Had full STD test, all negative. What could this be?
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
I have reviewed the pictures and it does look irritated with eruptions. This is very typical of a persistent allergy at the local site.
It could be from the fabric, some cleaning solution you have been using, or could also be because of tight underwear.
I will advise you to take a course of Tab. Claritin 10 mg once daily at bed time for a week and let me know if there is any improvement. Allergies should respond to this medicine.
Hope this was helpful,
