Acute and chronic prostatitis discussion. Arnon Krongrad, MD, moderator.
Dr. Nick Muff reports changes in skin color associated with his prostatitis (see video here). He says his daughter told him that he looked "gray."
Two days ago one of my prostatitis patients looked pale and pasty, as if he was on chemotherapy or hormone treatments. His skin color was decidedly abnormal, which my office staff also noticed. This morning, the morning after surgery, he was as pink as a baby's behind. The difference appeared as if to indicate a transformation from illness to health.
Has anyone noticed periods of palor associated with prostatitis? If so, what else was associated with it? Any other signs of symptoms? How long did it last? What triggered it?
