Hello,

Thanks for posting your query.

The sticky head of penis without any rash or discharge or itching is mostly due to the penile secretions only.

You need to wash it thoroughly after retracting your foreskin with a mild soap and water. Sometimes decreased number of ejaculations, increases the resting secretions making the penis head cold and sticky.

Take care of general cleanliness measures and use only cotton undergarments and see if the problem improves.

A direct examination by Urologist will help in ruling out any organic cause.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.

Regards.

Do you think the fact that my kidneys are also painful could contribute to the condition? Also, could I have caught something off my partner?

Hello again XXXXXXX

Thanks for writing again.

This is not something you have got from your partner.

Painful kidneys are usually associated with renal infection or renal calculus. An ultrasound scan will help in confirmation of the diagnosis. Your symptoms are not likely to be related to the renal problem either.

Hope my answer is helpful. Write back if you have further queries.

Wishing you a trouble free speedy recovery.

Regards.

Thank you Doctor. You have been very helpful, but the condition is still with me. How can I make it go away, I am meticolous with personal hygene but this does not seem to work. is there an antibiotic I can buy to make it better? Thank you again...

Hello.

Thanks for following up.

Antibiotics can be prescribed only after physical evaluation. It is best to consult a Urologist and get yourself examined for renal pain as well. Urologist will rule out possible causes after an examination.

Antibiotics will not help your stickiness as it does not seem to be due to an infection.

Washing frequently might help you.

Wishing you speedy recovery.

Regards.
