Hi there
the description you give is typical of that of a fungal infection
these can be hard to detect.
If your GP is "useless", I would see a dermatologist privately.
they will be able to diagnose and treat easily and rapidly
did you see my last reply?

Really .ok surely my gp would know that im in the uk not sure if things are different here for referals but will look into it , what about the raised or swollen rim of my corona it is an irregular shape that sometimes just one side sometimes right across or around the rim (looking down) & sometimes bumpy this is the same when flavid or erect my gp said its probably a collapsed vein or varicose vein & i have to live with it ,i also have 2 small (forked veins) that are visible on head of my penis that run from the swollen rim towards my uretha (pee hole) as well as other noticeable or prominent beins on my shaft ..& hydrocel around levf testicle !!?? Thanks
That sounds normal actually
I agree with him on that.
but the lacy rash is probably fungal
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Normal for varicose vein ?? It definitly wasnt like that before feb & has never looked the same since , is there any thing i can fo as its bit unsightly & can be uncomfortable during sex as it swells up more ?
you could try an ice pack or something to get the swelling down like an anti inflammatory like ibuprofen
