    I recently have been tested for STDs and came back negative to all (syphilis, HIV, gonorrhea and chlamydia of the mouth, urethra and anus). I thought I had syphilis because of this. I noticed it first on Sunday, got tested Monday, and the pictures are from Sunday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday this week (in that order).

    Are there any experts that would know what this is on first glance? It doesn't look as bad as the pictures of syphilis on google, it doesn't look like genital herpes on google, and it doesn't have the symptoms of chancroid (no lymph issues, no pain, don't even notice it except I did a genital exam last Sunday, which I do maybe every two months when I think about it). It has no roughness (it feels smooth, can only detect it by vision) and is at the same level as the skin around it. It doesn't ooze or have any secretions.

    The syphilis test was the blood antibody test, so I'm guessing it is too early to detect? It is on the side of my penis shaft.

    Mine isn't raised though. It's the same level as the skin.

    Has a doctor looked at it?

    Yes, they just did a full battery of STD testing and then said they were all negative and to make another appointment (which I can't for the next two weeks thanks to required internship hours--if I miss time it's add time and a half plus a poor evaluation of me). They don't do the microscope test for syphilis so it could be syph and just not showing up on antibodies yet?

    Maybe it's just psoriasis on my penis?

    It looks serious. It may have to be amputated.

    Only a doctor will know for sure.

    Unlikely because psoriasis are rashes that are raised and they itch, sting or burn. If you can't make an appointment for the next 2 weeks because of your internship, make an appointment for the 3rd week.

    Does not look like syphillis to me. Generally syphillis is dark or looks nastier (I know not necessarily a scientific way to term it). It's probably just discoloration on your penis. I mean penises vary in color, texture of skin, and shape. It doesn't seem like anything serious.

    I attempted to make dermatology appointments today. No doctors work on Friday afternoons in Austin. You'd think one of them would find that a lucrative business venture to just be open at that time. The STD clinic (which I dread going to because they'll just want to repeat all the same tests I just had last week) doesn't accept appointments until the day before at 8 am.

    It still looks like the last picture today.

    I'm gonna guess skin dermatitis.

    Possibly the lube, and or soap you use.

    Try something hypoallergenic.

    I'm glad you asked this because I've been wondering about something similar. what STIs/STDs would present on my dick if all I did was give oral sex?

    I have a spot that has shown up that I honestly think is a friction mark from masturbation. I've only sucked a couple of guys off in the past few months, but always had my pants on - so I'm probably panicking for no reason, but just wanted to ask. I've pretty much narrowed it down that if it is a STI/STD, it would be syphilis, but it's not an ulcer/chancre and it isn't oozing anything and plus, no one ever touched me there for that to be the "entry spot".

    the spot is maybe a little more red than my skin, very small, painless, flat and seems to going away some days. no real symptoms. it seems that it gets worse as I get hard or if I jerk off.

    thoughts?

    ^^ You need to go see a doctor. Too many possibilities on what it could be based on your description.

    looks like a chancre on your privates Mr!



    Syphilis sung to the tune of Yesterday by the Beatles.icon_cool.gif

    Syphilis, it all started with a little kiss
    now even hurts to take a piss
    oh how did I get Syphilis
    Syphilis he looked clean cut but guess he was remiss
    on how he got his case of Syphilis
    Why he had to lie I don't know he didn't say
    what the hell I don't know his last name anyway
    now I lie awake and try to pray
    hoping it will just up and go away
    Oh how did I get Syphilis
    Did I just payed a price for being gay
    and fucking random guys and getting laid
    Oh how did I get Syphilis
    wait he just gave me head and then I paid
    I bolted quick and thought I had it made
    now that's how I got Syphilis.

    All joking aside- that was an old fraternity song. It is probably nothing-keep us posted.
    Be well and good luck.

    wow. you actually took the time to make a song.

    anyway, the spot is gone. from what I've read, there is no way to get syphilis on the genitals if there never was any genital contact. Google is a scary place sometimes. they immediately say "OH ITS SYPHILIS!"

    so, my hypchondria is just in overdrive. it was probably friction from masturbation or something.
