Nighttime Penile Tape Test
Did tape test for pinworm. Got something white but did not move. Looked at it an hour later and it look liked there was nothing on the tape.

Two dermatologists: If the opinions of two separate dermatologists in separate clinics are the same, then the diagnosis is pretty certain. If still worried, one can see a third dermatologist in another clinic, or get some type of skin biopsy through one of the dermatologists. That means one should have ppo insurance or better, which allows one to have a larger choice of doctors to go to for second or third opinions. ...Read more
Can uroscopy be done to check the cause of penile discharge if not found by other tests? And what other information does it provide?
Why i have ED despite my penile duplex and hormonal tests good and i have no diseases linked to ED i have no morning erection and no libido for year ?
If all medical: causes for ED are ruled out, the cause is most likely psychological. I see that you report a history of OCD. A mental health professional can help you sort out possible conflicted feelings about sexuality and your body. A kind and open-minded spiritual leader may also be a possibility. Peace and good health. How is your diet and exercise? ...Read more
