Rashes On Scrotum - Possibly Herpes Or Not?

Recommended Posts

panglima

I have red skin rashes on the bottom/behind part of my scrotum. There’s no bumpy spot/any zit in the rashes, just plain pinky red skin areas, as if it was irritated skin areas. There are like 5 of them, close one to another. It appeared about 2 weeks ago and it didn’t get any better for few days until I visited a dermatologist at Saturday (9 days ago). I thought it was herpes but the dermatologist said it wasn’t herpes considering the pinky red areas never hurted , and there’s no bumpy spot at all (except glands that I've been having since years), and I have been tested at 18 weeks after my latest sexual encounter and all IGG tests (for both HSV 1 and 2) came back negative. Now it’s been total 5 months and 2 weeks after that latest sexual contact and I’ve never had this kind of red pinky areas before. I also have been tested clean for all other STDs such as hepatitis B/C, HIV, syphilis, etc.

The dermatologist prescribed me a mixed cream of benison M and fuladic. If you don’t know what are they, check these links out:

apparently benoson M is for fungal treatment?

he also prescribed me lameson for oral use:

And here are some pics of what it looked like:

As you can see above, there were some “peeled off skin” on the redness area back in Saturday/Sunday but after 4 days using the cream those redness areas disappeared completely. I stopped using it and 2 days it came back, precisely at those spots. I tried to not using the cream for a day and it didn’t get any better so I can confirm it’s not usual skin irritation (because usual skin irritation would definitely look better after a day)

if you check the above links (regarding drug indication and contraindication) there is one thing that really caught my attention. The oral drug, lameson, has these contraindications:

TB, systemic fungal infection, herpes simplex, DM, varicella, osteoporosis.

Does it mean IF I USE this lameson and what I have is actually herpes simplex, it should make it worse? because when I consumed this drug and it made my condition better, i can safely say I don't have herpes considering it is written as "contraindication" there?

an update,

today i visited the same dermatologist who prescribed me mixed cream of benoson M and fuladic, and he confirmed it's dermatitis on my scrotum and yes it has fungal infection, that's why the previous cream worked before it reappeared.

However, i still have a doubt it could be herpes. I was tested at 18 weeks after latest sexual encounter and was clean for both HSV1 and 2 (IGG and IGM tests) and also those red parts never hurted. They do itch sometimes but when I mean sometimes like once every 4-5 hours or so and the itch just disappear in 10-20 minutes. Also the itch location is totally random on the scrotum (so not always on those red areas)

      Sort of unrelated, but I remember a few months ago finding new patents filed last year for the einstein college vaccine. I wondered if they were indicative of new developments with it, but I brushed it off as probably not.

      I have not had sexual contact for at least half a year with a partner of more than four years monogamous, one non-protected encounter four years ago different women and then a few more non-protected over ten years ago.   One morning, I woke up after a having bad night time sweats (common) with a bad itch in my pubic region hair on right side about halfway between my penis and belly button. I did not look closely to later that night and noticed a large red rash, but don't believe I looked that closely. At some point I noticed a blister or something and tried to pop it and then walked away, I think being in denial I didn't want to look that closely, so I cant describe symptoms. This was on a Saturday or Sunday. The following Monday I went to work, where I do a physical demanding job al week, I noticed the area that had the rash showed about four areas that were infected (either cut or blistered) and would burn at night time during the week, They were located on my right side, directly where my belt buckle rubs. During the days that work week, my belt buckle would drive and rub in the area ( my buckle is metal square with pointy but not sharpe edges), I tried to pull my pants up and get the belt off the area but that was not always possible. After work that week, I took the weekend and then next two days off of work, the shooting pain evidently stopped and the area after a another week or two looked to be healing.  Week before symptoms: I have been under stress at work and the previous two days before the rash / OB I was working on a boat with another person, we were sharing work equipment and peeing with out washing hands (could he have had it and spread it to me through sharing of phones, equipment if he peed and then touch my phone, then I peed (sorry if stupid question)? My belt could have also been digging into me also, I have been wearing this belt for over a year and never had a problem. Currently, I took a Herpes 1 and 2 test from stdcheck using quest and it came back negative. Symptoms Dec 2/3 test Jan 21, negative results Jan 23. The area in pubic region is still red and appears to be scared but no open sores.   I know it is crazy but with the those symptoms I am still worried. Was that too soon to get a test? Is there any chance of getting if from a co-worker if they have it and touched the same things you did? Would you recommend getting another blood test in 3 months? Thank you for your input.

      Doctors will tell you this, but it's incredibly irresponsible of them, and it's advice that needs to be ignored. You always need to disclose your status before having sex with someone.

      The general public is just really poorly educated when it comes to virology in my opinion. Part of it though is just the fact that there's only so much information a person can remember and care about at one time. However I've always felt like HPV is way more openly discussed than HSV, at least in women's spaces.
