Tea tree oil soap or body wash, use it daily, use it before and after sex, the stuff is a natural anti bacterial, anti fungal and anti viral.

It may not be an STD at all.

 

In Thailand or the tropics only where cotton natural fiber underwear and pants. I have had terrible rashes in the past and after a GP advised a cream it was like fertilizer to the rash and became extremely bad. I used vinegar and it killed it within days ... I also use it for Tinea with excellent quick healing and we all know Tinea is very hard to get rid of.

 

A Thai Doctor would be the best as they know much more about tropical diseases.  Curious to know when you get it fixed.

Like the others said, see a specialist.

Use vitamin E cream to help with the flaking.

Fruit of the Earth, pure vitamin E cream.

doesn't sound like any std i'd heard of

 

it also sounds like you are not in a western country and having been and expat all around the world for 20 years i can relate to your struggles for competent medical care.

 

bumrungrad in bkk is the best non Ameraican or European option.

 

Best of luck and don't have sex till you figure it out.

I had a similar issue a little while ago. I had a couple of partners at the time and assumed I'd picked up something.
Same symptoms: Dry flaking skin on my pens and scrotum, itching / burning sensation. Painful masturbation.
I tried a variety of creams and powders as well as having the Drs pontificate and waste my money.
Only after lots of suffering and extensive research did I conclude the problem was penile psoriasis being cause by a testosterone booster I was taking at the time.
I was so fixated to the location, my penis, and my sexual history that I overlooked the obvious until I started noticing other dry patches of skin on my body.
Try a weak cortisone- anti itch cream 2x per day for 3 days. If it gets better it's probably psoriasis.
Psoriasis is an auto immune thing so it can be hard to pinpoint the allergen / cause but it should at least be a consideration.
Check out the penile psoriasis forums and be horrified.
Hope this helps.

That’s what I was thinking, Psoriasis or Eczema....🤔.

from the symptoms, yeast might be spot-on.
in the recent years, drug-resistant yeast has become more widespread, that might explain why drugs don't make it go away.

seeing a dermatologist specialized in veneral diseases is the best course of action.

 

I reached my quota of positive votes for today. I don't know about yeast, but it sounds serious. You should find a specialist of STDs  and pay him a visit. Stop self medication and ask your doctor to help you find a specialist.

Hi guys

 

I wanted to come back to this thread because I promised not to abandon it after some investigation. I E-mailed a specialist dermatologist and they quoted £300 for a consultation. Not too bad in the long run. She said to me was it just on my penis or all over my body? This led me down a new rabbit hole....

 

Oddly, this 'skin issue' IS all over my body and face, although it is mostly invisible. My penis doesn't itch or flake anymore, it is just after I rub it for a while you will see the skin peeling a bit and it looks dry. When I use skin moisturizer it really does help a lot and it doesn't do it a lot (not noticeable)  it does happens on my face, back, and entire body. On my body, only a few grains of skin will come off after I rub it for a while. If I moisturise properly than it almost takes away the issue.

 

I decided to take a HIV test, and thankfully it came back negative. After much great relief. 

 

It all started happening after I had my gallbladder removed. Now, I still eat a very unhealthy diet with a lot of sugar. I really do think it has something to do with my bodies inability to absorb too much sugar. When you have your gallbladder out, your skin does go oily and I really do think that is the cause. Without a gallbladder, your body cannot digest fat as well, so i look to the most simple cause and this could be it.

 

I am going to go on a diet and I do think it will clear up. I will just need to stay on a low-sugar diet. Maybe it has something to do with pre-diabetes as well?

 

Being STD free is a big relief, which means that I was able to 'come back onto the playing field'.  I visited Germany, used condoms for everything and had no issues at all. Infact, had one of the best experiences getting a blowjob from a cute Russian girl.

 

This means that i'll be coming back to Pattaya this year.

 

My only change in tac is using condoms for everything (BJ and sex) and being a bit more careful (Which will only help me)

Have you tried acupuncture, it worked for me in curing eczema which was similarly symmetrical on my shins.

I wasn’t a fan of alternative medicine and having tried everything prescribed by a my GP and a skin specialist with limited results over 2-3 years, I visited a Chinese practioner and followng three treatments, the condition cleared up never to return.

I haven't tried acupuncture, but it is on my list of dos. 

 

Next protocol is anothers doctors appointment. I will say it is all over me rather than just on my penis. It does get noticeably better when I eat less fatty/sugery foods. My skin is rather oily and when I rub my face, a few grains of dead skin come off. 

 

- Head and shoulders/anti dandruff medication doesn't work

- Anti-fungal medication has not worked

 

Moisturising my skin works for about 1 hour. The skin is just very dry.

 

I wonder if vitimin E cream might do the job.

Changing your diet can be transformational to the health of your skin, and your mood as well. If you're willing to deal with the effort and initial inconvenience it is worth it

It is 70% reduced when I cut out all of the high fat foods, chocolate, chrisps and chips.

 

Which makes me think it has something to do with my gallbladder being removed. I still haven't taken milk out of my diet or cereals,

perhaps it might get better after that. 

 

The best answer my gp had was take a STD test..... she must have been sleeping through her medical course.
