Not herpes but recurring red dots penis glans Watch
Hey o.p i have the same problem i had convinced myself it was thrush or balanitis cause i never got blisters or anything but i still keep worrying its herpes even though i haven't been sexually active for 2 years this being part of the embarassing reason... How did u get canesteen cream
Ill try my best to make this post as short as possible.
About 9 months ago had unprotected sex with a girl. Few weeks later had some red dots on my glans, they didn't hurt, didn't burst, didn't blister, was purely an aesthetic matter. I panicked, googled symptoms and eventually convinced myselfy i had herpes.
Went to doc he said it was nothing to worry about and will go away (he didnt say it was herpes), it started to go away then seemed to come back so i went back, he tld me to go to std clinic if im worried but he thought there is nothing to worry about.
Went to the std clinic, told the woman all my fear - that i thought i had herpes etc. She took one look and said it's not herpes and she's not even gonna test me for herpes because it's look nothing like what i had. What i had was a common penis rash and i was tested for other stds, all came back clear.
Then about 1.5 months later the dots came back so i panicked coz herpes reoccurs so when to a different doc who told me it was thrush and that i need to stop panicking and trust what the std clinic said because they are experts. Prescribed canestan, used it it cleared up.
And every now and then the dots come back, again they dont hurt, they dont have liquid in them, they dont burst, they are not blisters, just red patches/blotches/dots.
They came back 3 months ago, 2 months ago, 2 weeks and now ntoday. 3 months ago i rushed to the clinic to be diagnosed with thrush again, the doc laughed when i asked about herpes.
I did have phismosis which has also come back since having thrush and so sometimes if i masturbate without lube then the dots will come back, it that sense due to friction, but now When it came back 2 weeks ago i put it down to friction but now i have a red dot again on my glans and it wasnt there last night, but i went to an onsen and then stayed at my friends house, so didnt really shower and then when i got home i had a red dot.
I'm panicking and i would get over it mentally but i can actually see these red dots and it scares me, has anyone else had something similar or any tips? I know it could be balanitis etc but this keeps happening, what do i do?!
Man ive been super scared having the same problem ive had red spots on my penis head for a year now so ive had no sex life cause im embarassed the doctor told me its definitely not herpes and also laughed at me for asking... It gets extremely irritated and red after ejaculation ive used lotrimin cream but it hasn't worked i dont even know what to do
Only few red small type of dots , but nonpain nad ichiness at all
I was using all different types of steroid ointments but it would go away and come back. Eventually, the doctor gave me a tablet and antifungal ointment. You need to use the one specifically for Candida thrush and not the *****y athlete's foot creams.
Take the tablet and apply the ointment as much as possible. I applied mine every time I went for a pee in case it came off. I also cut out sugar completely as the high sugar content in your urine can help the fungus grow. Also, try and avoid alcohol for a month and keep healthy so your immune system can so it can help fight off the fungus.
As I mentioned, don't stress, just keep your head clean, apply the ointment and keep healthy and in a month you will be fine. Mine came back a few days ago so I just cut out sugar, applied the cream and now it's gone. I also noticed that just after I took the tablet it seemed to get worse, but then got better, this is normal.
Good luck and let me know how it goes. I feel your pain.
