Penile biopsy?

Recommended Posts

Divon

Hi!

I have these red dots and rashes that keep popping up and never dissapearing entirely on my penis head. Although I think they appeared from my skin being weakend by HSV I know with certainity that having them visable does not mean HSV shedding since I´ve had them PCR¨d twice.

I have another thread that discusses this so I dont wanna go into detail about my symptoms, instead I wanna ask about biopsy on the penis. Is it very painful to do a biopsy on the penis head and can it damage the skin in a way that never fully regenerates? What can be discovered through biopsy? Do you have to suggest a couple of things that they test the biopsy for or will they detect whatever is going on either way?

I can add that these symptoms have been going on for at least 10 months now without ever going away entirely. They make the penis head very sensitive and they become much worse from erection / rubbing.

Hi there

I had a biopsy done, and it was not that big of a deal. It did´nt hurt and I have no visible scars on my penisglans. I do allso get the red dots on my penisglans, and they come and go, and that  has been going on since december 2016. 

The result of the biopsy, was that it was probably Lichen sclerouses or Lichen planus. But it was only 90% conclusiv. I dont believe in that, and other doctors tells me the same, that they dont think that it is the culprit. 

I am still on the search of my symptoms, and Iam going to see a specialist in Candida tomorrow, to see if that could be it.

I see, I have a lot of questions but too tired to write them right now :). Keep me posted!

Just ask, and I will tell :-)

I went to the candida specialist yesterday, that was quite an experience :-) 

A lady in her mid 40´s, hippi I would say. She was very sure that I suffer form a serious Candida infection, And she could tell by holding a pack of yest up to my face and then pushing down on my arm :-):-)

Well I am gonna try this out, tho it was expensive. I am going on a very strict diet for a month. I can´t eat suggar, gluten, different kinds of meat, coffe, alcohol ect...

It´s going to be a hard month but I can do it.

      Did your pictures look like the top pictures?

      No it won't go up forever, I know I have been infected for a long time. Some people in here have values in the 50s. it just gives you an idea of where those numbers can go from here. The more antibodies you have the better off you are and at least you know your immune system is building those antibodies. I hope you do really well!

      The number doesn’t matter very much in terms of your experience with herpes. Your immune system has 80 elements that address HSV and your experience is related to the combined effort of these 80 elements. I’d suggest this partner is very probably infected and has been for a while.

      Obviously zero percent transmission rates can't be assured with the combination of Pritevilir and Valtrex. But I think it's safe to assume based on what we know that their effects will be cumulative and they'll work better together than they would separately, since they're halting viral replication by different methods. Pritelivir inhibits the enzyme helicase, where Valtrex inhibits the enzyme polymerase. If it were the case, for example, that Pritelivir were also going after polymerase and did a better job of halting it than Valtrex, then we would just take Pritelivir by itself with no more need for Valtrex. But that's not the case. Since the approaches of halting replication are different, a "cocktail" of the two drugs is certain to be more effective than taking just one or the other.  More on how Valtrex and Pritelivir work here: https://www.acsh.org/news/2018/06/12/herpes-vaccines-dont-work-what-about-drugs-pritelivir-page-aids-playbook-13074
