Thanks for your query.

Why You were started on citalopram lately?
Do u have pain while peeing?
Any h/o fever lately ?

It is very unlikely condition to have insect inside penis.
As the penile urethra is very narrow and survival inside it for insect is very difficult.
I doubt that you have some traumatic injury or infection of urethra or it may be a hallucination of insect crawling.

I advise you to visit your physician for proper diagnosis and treatment of your condition.

Meanwhile you can take urinary alkalinizer.
Drink a lot of water.
Continue with your medication Of Citalopram ,ciprofloxacin,antiparkinson medication.

Reply to above questions.
I will be happy to answer your further queries.

There are two bullet-shaped brown or black spots under the skin about 2mm long, 1 mm wide. I have not observed any insects actually coming out of my penis. I was prescibed Citalopram for anxiety 5 days ago 10mg, due to increase to 20mg after a week. What urinary alkaliser do you suggest? Penis is very painful, do you have any suggestions to relieve the intense pain?.

Hello again,

Causes of pain in penis are trauma (while intercourse or otherwise), hormonal problems, diabetes, Acute infection.

A visit to urologist will help in diagnosis and treatment of the same.

For the time being you can take analgesics like ibuprofen or tramadol with paracetamol.

Renalka is an urinary alkalinizer. Renalka also has anti–inflammatory and antiseptic effects and relieves the pains related to urinary disorders.
