Hi,
Thanks for writing in.
While I believe this condition is treatable, it would be best if we ascertain the cause before we begin treatment. The exact cause of the yellowish semen cannot be pinpointed at this stage. To be able to help you better, I would like to know whether you are sexually active or not.
However, as this is associated with irritation at the tip of the penis, it points towards the fact that infection is the most likely cause. An anti fungal agent like fluconazole would be the most appropriate treatment at this stage. Since this is a prescription drug, I would suggest that you see a physician and get yourself evaluated.
Hope this helps. I will be available for follow ups.
