Q: The skin on my penis is cracked and in constant pain. The dematologist has no answers.

The skin on my penis is cracked and rough.  I've been going to a dermatologist (Kaiser) for over 5 years.  They have tried cortisone, anti-fungal medications, did a biopsy with no relief.  I am in so much pain that I sometimes start to cry.  I have psoriasis on my legs but the dermatologist said that the rash on my penis is different. 


Any help would be appreciated.

What a problem.  Have you thought about seeing another doctor and getting another opinion? If you can I suggest you try and find the best dermatologist you can outside of Kaiser, bring your charts, and foot the bill  yourself. It shouldn't be too expensive to get another opinion - and with all this pain its causing you its certainly worthwhile. 


Good luck!

When all fails, I may be a good time to look into a different direction. Please get a book

The Secret or The power of your subconscious mind. Once you have read it again and again you will 'click' with the advice expressed. After 19 years of relentless pain I became painfree, doing the positive thinking and affirmations described in these books.

There are more books on the subject, but I do not need any more. The Law of Attraction is what is all about. You may have to do a little soul searching before it

'clicks' with you, but once you 'get it' there will not be a turning back for you. It is so

empowering to know that you can really do something for yourself.

I wish you succes. And you will succeed if you desire it .

I understand that you are in a lot of pain, but this does seem to be a dermatological problem, so you might want to ask your question on our skin care site,  They would have more experience with this kind of thing than we do. 


Other than that, I would agree with Cort's suggestion that you find another doctor. 


Good luck to you.
