Hello,

I am 30 years old male. For the last 1 week, I am having severe itching inside my penis head and bottom side. And while urinating it becomes very severe. When I wash it with hot water and soap, I could not take my hand out of my penis as the itching is heavy, so I had to massage my penis head a lot to control that. After using fourderm ointment outside the itching area, it is little bit in control. But the itching everytime starts again after I urinate. I do not see any visible difference outside the penis that is causing this itching and I do not see any discharge also. I had sex with a friend 2 weeks ago and used condoms. After 2 years I used condoms this time. I am not sure whether this is caused by any infection due to the condom or any other infections such as STD from my partner. I do not know whom should I consult for this issue, an Urologist or a Sexologist? Kindly help me get rid of this itching.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

First of all get one urine routine test and Fasting Blood Sugar test done. Your problem could be either a fungal infection or a reaction to the condom.

I advise you to take consultation with a urologist online --> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/urologist
