My Mood: Hypersensitivity in the penis (irritated & prickly)

The area from the foreskin scar of the penis to the very tip is extremely hypersensitive. If nothing is touching it (if im naked) i do not know that there is a real issue, but as soon as i put underwear on, that problem starts. The problem is of course walking and doing anything active and the underwear that it rubs against. The more I do the worse if irritates. I realize this is an area that most people shy away from talking about, but I have no other options at this point. A Dermatologist that I saw many years ago and just saw again yesterday told me that he thought it to be nerve related, not skin. He suggested an MRI or for me to see a Neurologist and possibly have a nerve conduction study performed on me (read details online and it seems that that would be painful or impossible?) He also gave me a Rx for Amitryptilline 10 mg. Any feedback or ideas would be much appreciated. Thank you!
So sorry you have this problem. It must be very difficult for you to talk about. My sympathies are with you.

I guess you know my story from reading my previous posts, I have seen 2 urologists and one dermatologist who referred me to a penile eczema specialist and I’ve been tested for pretty much everything.

As most of my self medication, which consisted mostly of emollients in an attempt to lessen the friction, never had much of an effect I have vastly reduced the application of these, that includes the Topricin, a homeopathic/herbal anti-inflammatory cream which I mentioned in my last post, I only tried a couple of applications and it just seemed to sting so I gave up on that.

So far the reduction in applications had made little noticeable difference so I may continue with that, I have just started my first long walks of the year so I’ll see how it goes.

I am not able able to post links yet but this is by far the best article I have ever read on the subject, you should find it by searching for:
“‘Vegas’ Dysesthesia: Understanding and Improving Management of Groin Dysesthesia” by Richard G. Fried, MD, PhD

I am absolutely certain that what I have is genital dysaesthesia! A top dermatologist diagnosed me with this and has prescribed Pimecrolimus cream. Have you tried this yet? Does it help?

Also, could this condition result from cuts on the penis or use of corticosteroid creams?
