Thanks for the query.

I would like to know some more details regarding your problem.

1)What is your age.
2)Since how long have you noticed this problem.
3)Whether the coldness is present only at the time of erection or even otherwise.
4)Do you have any trouble in achieving erection.
5)Do you any difficulty in passing urine.
6) Are you on medication for Bacterial Endocarditis .

There is a possibility that your bacterial endocarditis might be causing poor flow to blood vessels of your penis causing it to become relatively cooler.

Please do answer these queries, and we will defintely try to help you.

Regards and here's hoping you will be doing well.

Wishing you good health.

Thanks for responding promptly to my queries.

In view of the fact that you have no difficulty in voiding urine and no difficulty in achieving erections and when your reports show no major problem, it looks like you probably may not have a serious medical issue at present.

But it will be difficult to say that you have absolutely no medical condition unless I examine you personally. What I suggest is that you continue taking the medication that was prescribed you earlier by your physician, and should you continue to feel concerned that there is an issue that needs to be checked, go to a urologist immediately.

Also consult a Urologist immediately if you have a difficulty in achieving an erection, or once after you have achieved an erection, you have difficulty in getting rid of the erection. This could be XXXXXXX and needs prompt treatment.

Hope this answers your queries, and feel free to ask me for any further clarifications.

Hi again,
Thanks for the follow up.

Just to answer your last question first. Marijuana can play tricks with the mind, and alters interpretation of sensations.

But again, though I suspect no major issues, if you are worried, you should better consult in person a urologist who will examine you to rule out any serious conditions such as a penile plaque .

Sometimes, you might need a penile doppler scan to confirm that blood supply to the penis is indeed normal. Alcohol and anxiety also might cause similar problems.

Hope this takes care of your queries.

Wishing you good health.
