Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have been suffering from a rash or changes to the head of my penis. I was informed it was a yeast infection and tested negative for STIs. However, after treatment, I noticed a little progress. I have seen a urologist and a dermatologist, neither of which have been able to figure it out. And the dermatologist told me they do not want to do a biopsy down there unless they have to. I had redness on the head of my penis and noticeable inflammation. Now, I am noticing small bumps that I have never seen before. My main concern now is if this is cancer or something serious. One of the doctors I have seen actually said maybe it would just go away after he could not help. I have tried every over the counter cream, yeast infection cream, steroid cream, soaps lotion, etc. I will send pictures.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It seems to be balanitis. Do you have any urinary complaints like frequency, urgency, low stream, nocturia, dribbling? Do you have any history of diabetes, hypertension, or any medications you are on? Is there any history of unprotected sex with a new partner in the recent past?

Patient's Query

Thank you doctor,

The only issues I am having are discomfort or pain. When I urinate, it seems like the last little bit is stuck in the urethra. When I sit down after I urinate, the pressure pushes the last few drops out. When I ejaculate clear fluid like pre-ejaculate, it will continue to come out even after urinating for up to an hour afterward. No diabetes or blood pressure issues and no STDs. As I have been checked for them, I thought it was when I first experienced this. I was told it was balanitis several times. However, I have done two courses of steroid creams now, and it has not gotten any better.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
