Pain On Perineum Area and small Inflammation Male. 5 visit to doctors, pain still present.

Posted , 11 users are following.


I have been suffering from inflammation and pain on the perineum area for the past 3 weeks. I also had constipation for 2 out of those 3 weeks. First two doctors seem to have misdianossed what I have on the early stages(One said Jock Itch, other skin irritation do to new detergent). Third doctor indicated I have proctitis and gave me antibiotics for it.

I completed the 10 day dosis of BACTRIM/SEPTRA DS) 800-160 mg Oral. The inflamation and redness and the area improved on day 7, but the pain was stil present. As of today, I still see inflammation on the perenium, causing small discomfort when I walk or wear underwear(I am trying boxers now to avoid skin rubbing). The pain on the perineum increases when I sit. Doctor prescribed a second 10 day cycle of same antibiotics, but I am not sure if this is really going to help at all.

To conclude, my sypmtoms are:

Small skin Inflammation on perineum(behind testitcles and lower checks on anus)

Pain on the area when sitting( I have to use a pillow to decrease pain)

Constipation comes and goes( gone for the past 2 days)

I do have frequent urination, was reading the description for Chronic prostatitis, and sounds familiar to my condititon with the exception that I do not have anything wrong with urine(test done). Anyone here that has suffered from something similar? The discomfort is stopping me from doing my regular activities do to the pain. To me it does not make sense to run the same cycle of antibiotics if pain did not go away after the first one.

    Hi im looking for some reassurance i think. Ive been having terrible pain with suspected prostatitis but have had 2 weeks of syprofloxin antibiotics but not any better. After reading perniel problems its a match to what im going through. I have aching in bum and pressure in lower back passage . Also bowel motions have changed with this i.e cant do much. Doctors examined me and said prostate was inflamed and next doctor says its ok and yet still in pain. My pain and discomfort is inside anus area . When i first wake up in morning i feel great but after half hour its back. Can you give your thoughts
