Penis Pain: Fixed Drug Eruption or STI?

Penis Pain: Fixed Drug Eruption or STI?

When a man experiences some penis pain and then discovers a sore on his manhood, he may become anxious for his penis health. After all, doesn't that situation seem like it could be describing an STI? Certainly, it must be some health issue, but it could be due to a different cause, such as a fixed drug eruption. Learning the characteristics of certain penis health issues can help ease a man's worries until he can visit a doctor and get an informed and definitive answer.

What is a fixed drug eruption?

Essentially, a fixed drug eruption is a way of describing a specific allergic reaction to a particular drug. When a person takes a medication to which they are allergic, it may cause a reaction in one of several ways (itching, hives, sneezing, etc). With a fixed drug eruption, it means that a round or oval shaped lesion will appear. Typically, it is reddish in color although it may shade into brown or purple. The lesion will usually turn into an ulcer, which is tender to the touch.

When the fixed drug eruption appears on the manhood, it usually is accompanied by some penis pain, itching or burning; the burning sensation is more likely to occur during urination.

Although many fixed drug eruptions occur within a day or two of taking a drug, in some cases it may be up to two weeks before lesions appear. Ceasing the drug that causes the eruption may cause the sore to go away; in other cases, steroids may be recommended.

STI?

That description sounds an awful lot like an STI, at least on the surface. And because it is crucial to correctly identify causes of penis health issues, it's important that a physician be consulted to verify exactly why this lesion has occurred. However, that said, there are some reasons why this description indicates a fixed drug eruption rather than certain STIs.

- Syphilis. Take syphilis, for example. One of the most-feared social diseases, syphilis causes about 100,000 deaths worldwide each year - and newly infects about 6,000,000 people annually. One of the most common clinical characteristics of syphilis is a lesion on the penis. However, that lesion is typically much "harder" than the one involved in a fixed drug eruption. Additionally, penis pain is not a common characteristic with syphilis.

- Herpes. Genital herpes are also characterized with lesions; however, with herpes, the sores tend to be smaller and more numerous. They also tend to cluster, whereas fixed drug eruption lesions (when they are multiple) may not appear in an obvious grouping. The herpes lesions are also not pigmented in the same way. There is, however, a similar tendency to penis pain and itching.

- Chancroid. Chancroid is a penis health concern not just for itself but because it can also make a person more vulnerable to HIV infection. With chancroid, the ulcer can be more painful than with a fixed drug eruption. The coloration is much different, typically yellowish-gray, and turning to black when tissue cell destruction is complete. In addition, swelling of lymph nodes can create a swollen and sore area in the midsection.

- Gonorrhea. Gonorrhea often presents with no symptoms; however, when it does, ulcers are not among its common symptoms.

Once a physician has determined the cause of the sore, proper treatment can be initiated.

Whether caused by a fixed drug eruption or other causes, penis pain is not something most men look forward to. Keeping the member healthy through the daily use of a superior penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) can help with normal penis pain situations. A crème with soothing moisturizing abilities is especially desirable, so select one with both a high-end emollient (think Shea butter) and a natural hydrator (vitamin E is good). In addition, it pays to find a crème with vitamin D, the so-called miracle vitamin, which is beneficial for fighting diseases and improving cellular function.

Size does not matter.It is how you shower your love that matters, my friend.Women tend to care much less about their sexual partner's penis size than the man does himself.Average penis size is 5 to 5.6 inches long when erect but any thing more than 3 inches in the erect position is alright.As far as increasing the size of the penis is concerned, take the healthy nutritious diet.do regular exercises especially the pelvic floor strengthening ones.Do not smoke or take alcohol as they have a deleterious effect on your genital organs.Stay away from products claiming to increase penis size. Since wanting a larger penis is such a common desire, there are a lot of scammers out there making promises without fulfilling them.Be Wary of Herbal products as they mostly contain viagra like substances which are harmful in the long run.

'stomach problem' or gastrointestinal problems can be due to variety of causes starting from common acid peptic disorders to some major ones. Nausea and vomiting are pretty common these days especially because of unhealthy food habits and irregular timing. So my first and simple advice to you should be not to be overanxious or worried. You should just get some routine check ups done. As you have already mentioned that you are suffering for 5 long years I can assume that you have already been taking over the counter drugs or antacid or digestive enzymes without much relief. So it's better to get an upper gi endoscopy and an ultrasound of whole abdomen done. If those results come out to be normal, we can proceed with functional and psychological aspects that can cause similar problems. You haven't mentioned about your bowel habits I hope it is ok or else you can take laxatives. Take care.

I have digestive problem and in the its too much problem due to this can you give some easy suggestions for this.
You have to be a good observer. Try to avoid the food items which make you lethargic or give you indigestion the same day after eating. Avoid late evening dinners. Take regular walks and even violent physical exercises. Start taking wheat grass juice. It has enough minearals and vitamines and will keep your digestion in order. Stress is a major contributing factor. Start meditation. To improve your immunity and strengthen your indigestion start using homeopathy. The best form of harmless medication. Avoid Antibiotics.

Take pranacharya aceno syrup 2-2 tsf twice a day. Take pranacharya aceno capsule 1-1 twice a day. And avipattikar churna 1-1 gm with warm water. Take pranacharya udar bhaskar kshar churna twice a day with warm water. Take fresh butter milk empty stomach. Avoid tea. Coffee.spicy food. Junk food. You can take my 'acidity treatment package' which is available on Lybrate in health packages.
