Hello, I was hoping that someone would be able to help me.
I am a 25 year old male living in Japan. I have been sexually active for some time, but have never had any problems until March of last year.
I hadnt had sex for 5-6 months, and then at one point I started to see small little red spots on some parts of my penis head, and the foreskin around the head. These spots are very small, and usually not itchy.
There are times when these spots seem to dissappear almost for months on end. These spots started to appear at the same time I engaged in oral sex with a woman. I asked her about whether she had any STD's and she said that she had just been tested recently and had shown negative.
She asked her doctor about my situation and the doctor (without examining me, just based on description) said that it sounded like some sort of fungus. She prescribed some pills and cream...these seem to work, but that was last years March. The symptoms seem to reappear after several months.
Well the spots come and go every so often. Its tough for me to see a doctor here, since not many speak English. The spots appearance remind me of the appearance of Poison Ivy, which I had 2 years ago. There is a problem with Fungus in the home etc. here in Japan. So I guess it could be that.
Any advice would be helpful..
