Blisters/rash on right side head of penis. Tested negative for herpes and syphilis. Doctor prescribed me antibiotics/fungal cream. Wut else could it b?

Reaction?: If any contact with bowl cleaner or other chemical, could be a local reaction (/"burn") from that, which may look infected on exam (hence abx/anti-fungal). The warm/moist environ slows healing. Should keep dry & aired as able (don't get arrested!) while using ointments as rx'ed. Give it a week. If not improving, get re-checked. ...Read more

Can fluid come out of eczema.The skin is red with rashes that look like blisters,Itching at times but have sugar.All this after a cut.on antib & cream?

A qualified yes: If you meant atopic dermatitis then the answer is unusual. If you meant contact dermatitis , then the answer is often yes. I suspect that you might have used neosporin (or equivalent) OTC ointment on the wound site and have developed a contact allergy to one of the ingredients (neomycin). Try topical HC cream and stop the antibiotic ointment. If problem persists , see your doctor. ...Read more

Some individuals get relief from itching from hydrocortisone cream as well. ...Read more

Not herpes: Which "antibacterial"? Allergies to aminoglycosides such as bacitracin and neomycin are very common. Whatever it is you should stop it. Herpes does not persist so long. MAYBE a DR can tell after an exam. Best chance if a dermatologist. ...Read more
