Constant tingling

Recommended Posts

I am not diagnosed and looking to get some insights from this community about the symptoms I'm having.  Several weeks ago started having mild, intermittent "warm" scrotum.  I could not even notice it if I was busy.  A couple weeks into it it progressed into a serious burn in scrotum and anus, but no outbreaks.  That went away after a nights sleep but since then have had a consistent tingle in my anus and occasional burn in various areas from thighs, eyes, nose.  No outbreaks, but have had the one off little pimple looking thing in random areas from ankle, knee, thigh, never on penis, scrotum or anus from what I can tell.  I have also noticed a near immediate reaction to foods.  If I have a glass of wine, I can feel my nerves reacting to it.  I went to two doctors, both were confident it was not herpes.  Had the IGG test, 6 weeks after last time I was with someone.  Even insisted on a 10 day antiviral treatment, but it didn't have an impact.  I am really confused as to what this is and I'm thinking most traditional doctors are not equipped for this.  Although I did to both a Urologist and an STD clinic in hopes they'd have more knowledge than most.  I feel like a dermatologist and infectious disease specialist would be next, as well as another IGG test.  I know I can't get treatment here, but I'm curious if anyone else has had these symptoms and/or knows which form of specialized care provider to go to get diagnosis.  Lastly, if it is Herpes, what form of treatment is there?  Just stay on antivirals and hope these odd random feeling diminish?  Thanks for you insights!

There is little doubt on this one, we are not dealing with genital herpes here.

A herpes infection results in an outbreak 2-12 days afterwards (average 4 days) and consists of sores at the infection site. The scrotum is pretty much never an infection site, it is just thick skin with too few nerve endings.

But what is it? Was the sexual contact troubling in any way? Are you a bike rider?

What type of doctor do you feel is best suited to help if you do have Herpes?  Infectious disease? Dermatologist? Urologist?  I have such odd symptoms that I want to find someone with a deeper level of specialization to understand what's going on.  Thanks!

I have an answer but it is not the typical route...Find the best Naturopathic Dr., Traditional Chinese Herbalist/Acupuncturist, or Master Herbalist you can find in your area. They do not just treat and mask the symptoms, they treat the whole body to get to the root of the dis ease in your body. I have a post "Why I Choose Holistic Medicine" that documents my journey of illness my gp diagnosed as aging. I am almost back to normal but it was a journey.

      No Western Blot. High positives with both IgG & IgM tests plus symptoms .

      I doubt it is HSV. I agree with them. If anything I would look at other STDs for throat symptoms. Make sure you are clear from everything

      I went to see clinic and she said they only take a swab if I have blisters. She was very dismissive of everything I said - I heard somewhere that GPS don’t do blood tests anymore for herpes cause it was causing significant mental health problems due to being incurable  I’m ambivalent about blood tests as they don’t seem accurate and whatever answer I get there’s still a part of me that will be unsure and will fuel anxiety   i thought it was difficult to get genital herpes in throat?But the flu like symptoms afterwards was nothing I’ve experienced before and happened the day after. Would this be as serious as genital herpes ?    I just find it hard to sit and wait for any bump on my vagina and it’s all I can think about
