Dry flaky genital skin
Posted on: 05/24/2007
I have dry flaky skin that itches by night time all around the genital area. not only that, im having bumps that grow near the genital area including butt and other sorts of area of the body. the red bumps that grew on genital area looks like pimples because the tip turns white after couple of days. i've read somewhere online that this can be "Chancroid" I've already gotten tested for HIV, Syphillis, Gon, Chlamydia, and herpes which came out negative. but urine which they said it was perfectly fine. so i asked the doctor what it was, he said it's some sort of fungus. he didn't seem to care so im looking for a new doctor, to see if this is "chancroid" or not. but im having trouble as to know which department of doctor to go to. ive also read somewhere online that i should see a dermatologist. what department of doctor do i need to go to fix this problem?
Sounds like dermatology is your best bet - good luck!
