OK so for a little while now, I have had this problem. I get a red, oval shaped mark, I guess I could call it, on the side of my penis. It is on the head, and on the shaft, and maybe the size of a quarter, stretched into an oval shape. It itches like crazy, and if I scratch it, it just gets worse. It does not hurt, or discharge anything, it just itches. It kinda looks the area is swollen a bit as well.I also have the same thing on the roof of my mouth, except it does not itch, it just bothers me, until it gets irritated by eating, drinking, smoking etc. and then it hurts really badly. Almost like having an extreme burn in your mouth.They appear together and gradually, for about a week, get worse, then seem to go away if I leave them alone (no sexual contact, no hot foods, stuff like that). But they come right back. Also right before they start to bother me, I get a massive headache for about a day, I feel down and upset,... then it goes away and the itching starts. A little bit after that is when my mouth starts to bother me. And this just goes on and on, like some crazy cycle for about a week. After it clears up (I still have a red spot on the roof of my mouth and on my penis, but they do not hurt/itch/do anything really, other than just be red), it's anywhere from a week to a month before it happens again.My doctor says it is a yeast infection and not an STD (my partner of 6 months has no symptoms or signs of anything odd going on anywhere) and gave me Clotrimazole, in both tablet and cream form. It seemed to work, but a week went by and I got the headache, and it happened all over again.Friends in the medical field all agree with my doctor, and to keep using the medications, and I plan to, I just wonder if I was mis-diagnosed somehow. I keep worrying it is something else. About a year ago, I had a partner who cheated on me many times with many people, and I got chlamydia from that experience, but it was treated and taken care of. Is it possible I still have something from that time? Perhaps an STD? An infection? Maybe even an allergic reaction?Any help/comments would be really appreciated. Thanks, everyone.
Red mark on penis/ "burn" on roof of mouth?
I agree with Radeckl that a culture is needed. The headache is interesting. Neither a yeast infection, nor an STD, should lead to a headache, unless perhaps it's a systemic yeast infection rather than a local one. Another possibility is an allergy.
so its been a while and things are clearing up. occasionally, it itches a bit, but nothing like it did. so far so good
