Irritation at the tip of the penis after having unprotected sex. Could this be STD or yeast infection?

I had unprotected sex with a woman 5 weeks ago. About 3 weeks after I had a mild intermittent irritation in the tip of my penis . It seems to come and go and also seems to get slightly worse as the day progresses. I ve had no other symptoms other than this irritation. Is this likely to be a STD or some other form of infection? I had a similar irritation years ago that was more severe and I tested negative for STD s but the Dr suggested my partner could have a had a severe yeast infection . That irritation started a few days after contact.

Hi,

Thanks for your query.

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

It is possibly an yeast infection. But STD cannot be ruled. Please visit an STD clinic and get your self evaluated for STD which is helpful in accurate diagnosis. It is not worth risking.

I hope I answered your query. I will be available for any followup queries you have.

Regards,
Dr.Mahesh Koregol
