Question: HI,
On Saturday night I had intercourse several times with my boyfriend, by the end of it I started to get sore from the friction. The next morning when I went to the toilet I experienced extreme burning so I had a look at there is a small raw looking patch right next to my urethra. There is no pain unless I touch It or when I urinate.
Is this something I should be worried about or is kt likely to just be from the friction? Also how can I get it to heal and soothe it.
Thanks
doctor

Hello,

Thank you for posting a query.

Look, your description sounds like a small area with inflammation due to frictions. As, the skin is damaged at that part, it looks raw.

Now, it is exposed to infection due to close relation with urethra.

First of all, try to avoid intercourse for 2 to 3 days.

Keep the area dry.

You can apply some Topical antibiotic agent like mupirocin group of ointment. It will prevent superimposed infection and will help in healing.

Right now, you do not need any extra medicine. Just wait and watch for 2 to 3 days. If you do not get any relief, consult with a general physician or gynecologist for clinical examination for the extent of damage, and for further management depending upon the clinical findings.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.

Regards.

use of mupirocin ointment nasally
I am having I spinal fusion in the morning and was instructed to use mupirocin nasally prior to arrival. the mupirocin I received from the pharmacy is 2% ointment when I read the internal literature it said not to use in the nose but that there are nasal forms of the medicine. I think I tecieved the wrong stuff from the pharmacy that being said. should I still use it or wait and see what the doctor would like to do in the morning?

Can anything be done to get rid of crusty spots in my nostrils ? They are not sore and do not bleed, but they won't go away. My ENT doctor gave me Mupirocin ointment,, and I used it nightly for weeks on end finally giving up as it did nothing. My complaint with him was that had lost my sense of smell a couple of years ago. I cannot smell good or bad odors. After I had a nasal X-ray, he told me that my sinus passages were clear, and no infection. I have used over many years a OTC Nasal spray, and wondered if that has damaged my sense of smell ? I I live alone and have to triple check myself to make sure the gas jets on my stove are off. The Dr. said it would come back, but it is now 6 months later and still not a thing !Sue Cadman

I have a painful belly button. There is also a brownish discharge that takes about three hours to refill the cavity after cleaning it out. The discharge is extremely smelly and resembles a fecal odor. I also experience pain when the area around the belly button is palpated, primarily directly below. Two sores are now apparent in the cavity but were not there a week ago when the symptoms first appeared. The amount of discharge has been constant regardless of the presence of the sores. I do not have a fever. I've seen two doctors about this condition. One prescribed a topical cream called Mupirocin Ointment. The next prescribed an antibiotic pill called Sulfamethoxazole. Both have been ineffective at relieving any of the symptoms.
