I'm circumcised and the head of my penis becomes irritated whenever I get a cold. I get a runny and/or stuffed up nose, mild fevers,cough. I get colds every 4 months because I work w/kids. My simultaneous cold & penis irriation only began to happen recently. The head of my penis gets a little red, really wrinkled. This isn't funny, but I would say that the wrinkles remind me of pictures of a dry desert floor that is cracked. However, there isn't any unusual dryness & the skin isn't broken. The skin on the head of my penis becomes swollen/raised.
-The first time it happened was at the beginning of Jan. '07 and my penis head was very itchy. I went to Drs. on Duty and the dr. asked about my sexual history. 3 weeks before this, I had unprotected contact with a partner's genitals. During this time, I had a TINY nick on my penis shaft (however, the skin on my penis was broken). The only time I had unprotected oral sex was in June '07. He didn't know what it was, but prescribed Nystatin Cream and said to come back if it reccurred. It went away a few days later.
-The second time was about a month later in Feb. 07 and I went to my GP, who I didn't go to the first time because I didn't have insurance. The same cold and penis irritation symptoms happened, but this time it was less itchy. However, the symptoms on my penis went away quickly and he only got a look when it was going away. He had me tested for HIV, Chlamydia, Syphilis, and I had a blood test(IGG) for HSV 1 and 2. All came back negative. He said he didn't know what it was, he first thought HSV2, but was unsure.
-The last time it happened was 1wk.ago. The same cold and penis irritation symptoms happened, but this time it wasn't itchy. I haven't had any sexual activity since the end of Dec. '06. I got retested for everything above including another blood test(IGG) for HSV1 & 2 on July 30. I got the results & everything is negative. The symptoms came and went so fast that I wasn't able to get to my doctor in time.
