Hello doctor,

I have issues with pain on top of the penis. On the left side of the glans penis, there is a stinging sensation when rubbed against (example boxers). Not sure if it is a nerve issue. Currently taking Clotrimazole-Betamethasone for it. I have done blood and urine test. Kindly advice.

This is surely not related to any nerve issue.

Thank you doctors,

What is it related to?

Your problem is related to localized sensation due to tight boxers or localized dermatitis due to tight or prolonged clothes.
