No doubt, huh?: Let me get this straight, you have a painful ulcer on your penis for more than 6 months and you "doubt" if it is herpes or syphilis? Really? What is doubtful is your "diagnosis" of the problem and your ability to endure pain. It is time to "man up" and go see a real MD who can identify your issue and resolve your "doubts".
