could the lymphangitis be a result of the sore? The sore was the first symptom and it did show signs and still is showing signs of being infected. I dont have much knowledge about anything medical, but i thought the lymph system is active to help support my immune system especially when infections accure. it seems logical that the infection of the sore on my penis caused my lymph system to take a great effect in that area of my body. Then there was some kind of clot or blockage cause the the lymphangitis. what my concern is that the usual cause of lymphangitis is a trauma to the effected area, but i didnt have rough sex and i didnt/dont masturbate in a rough or traumatizing way. I guess my question is: Are there other causes for lymphangitis?View Thread
I am 23 year old male. My girlfriend has herpes, I don't, but about 4 weeks ago I got a red irritation directly under the head of my penis. I wrote it off to a friction irritation that I get time to time. They usually heal and go away with in a few days, but this was different. There never was an pain or discomfort, but it also never went away. It looked like there was three separate sores right next to each there. They did not have any of the characteristic of herpes nor did I have any of the other common symptoms. But I did develop a few other symptoms. Swelling around the penis, swelling of the lymph glands in my groin, and a hard "vein" the Runs from the base of my penis up to about 1/4 from the head and around the head of my penis. The above article is the only thing I have found the has matched that symptom. The vein does cause a little pain while I have an erection and during intercourse/masturbation. Also I have had issues was premature ejactulation. We have stopped having sex and I have stopped masturbation, but the symptoms have gotten any better. I am wondering if I have what the article is talking about or if I should go see a doctor about it? Also if anyone has any idea what condition may fit my symptoms better and what I can do about it.
