sore glands and skin


Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone has permanent tender  foreskin and glands , im yet to try get a igg test(hard to get it done in uk it seems, clinics dont do them) but just wondering if anyones had symptoms similar, i had symptoms at first where my head went sore and red and was peeling back and was very  sore took a week or more to heal up. When it healed the tenderness and redness never has gone. Not had anything else outbreak wise other than flaky peeling skin. All internet says is most the time its blisters but ive never had a blister. Anti fungals and steroid creams are all the docs keep giving me as they think its less severe but im thinking otherwise

Dude if its herpes and you arent asymptomatic, then trust me you'll know about it.

Also if its herpes Antifungals wont do anything man.

Herpes in guys is usually swelling, blisters etc that heal then crust, but you are right in that the area is very sensitive afterwards.

I have chronic redness and irritation at site of infection.  Constant tingling burning.  

Try baby butt cream. It does help the irritation and redness

Ive only had one time about 2 year ago it looked like balantitis but didnt heal up for weeks. the doctors where clearly wrong, im left with a very sensative / sore glands and inflame foreskin. in process of trying to get igg test which is harder to do the uk as the gum clinics dont do these tests as standard. Guess it is what it is, must have constant pain instead of outbreaks.

That really doesn't happen with herpes. A permanent patch of red and peeling skin needs a dermatologist to look at it straight away. Are you seeing a specilist rather than generalists?

Its not a patch it is the whole gland area and foreskin that are always feeling inflamed and tender / sore. it started with the whole gland changing colour and looked like peeling and was really sore. took a while to heal and its never gone back to normal colour  or state

Yep that's like my head. It's always partially pealed now. Herpes is different for everyone. I was just reading about how this 40 year old died because hsv1 got into her liver and fucked her up. This is the reality of this fucked up virus. It has caused me tremendous pain and suffering in the year I have had it, I quit my job and went back to live with my parents as a 30+ year old. Herpes can cause so many different issues in various ppl.

      Hi @Anxious 1234 Did you get diagnosis for this?

      Hi @WhatDidIDo2023, hopefully all is well with you and your significant other and are still together.   Did she develop any other symptoms after you mentioned her getting itchiness? Was it determined what you had was contagious? Most likely developed a fungal disease and caused her a yeast or uti

      Well thank you I appreciate it

      Hi @Luna 01 I really feel it is worthwhile obtaining a proper Herpeselect test given the outcomes of the home panel test. Regardless, your current symptoms are almost certainly not related to herpes. Hopefully, your doctor can assist in resolving these.
