Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

In order to understand your problem better, can you provide the following clarifications:
- Where exactly are you having the pain - over the foreskin of the penis or in the inner part i.e. the glans or the head of the penis?
- Do you have any redness or swelling over the penis?
- Do you have any discharge or secretions over the glans or under the foreskin?
- Do you have any burning sensation or discomfort when passing urine?

Wish you all the best.

Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

From the description of your symptoms, there could be the following possible causes for your problem:
- Urethritis (an infection and inflamation of the inner urinary passage)
- An ulceration or erosion in the urethral passage
Both these conditions can cause intermittent pain in the penis as well as painful erection.

I would suggest the following:
1) Have a urine culture test done to detect any infections
2) If found to have an infection, you have to take a course of antibiotic medication
3) Retract the foreskin and wash the penis with a diluted Betadine solution twice a day (Betadine solution should be available in all pharmacies)
4) For the pain and irritation, you can take Citralka syrup (two spoons of the syrup should be diluted in one glass of warm water and taken every night)
5) Drink plenty of water and fluids
6) Avoid masturbation or sexual activity for atleast 2 weeks while you are taking treatment.

Wish you all the best.

I am a 26 year old man. I've used protection for vaginal sex but no protection for oral sex.

My meatus/external urethral orifice is slightly swollen, it stings when I urinate and I have an ache in my testicles but I don't have any discharge.

Could this be the beginnings of gonorrhea or could it be urethritis? How would I treat this?

Hi, I ve been experiencing what feels like a burning sensation around my cervix area.. and sometimes a mild pinching pulling feeling like I sometimes feel during/just after a papsmear. There are no other symptoms, no discharge, no odor... I have had this happen before in the last couple of years, the doctors tested me for all sorts of things and everything came back negative with the exception of them saying that they could see very minor amounts of bacteria. They prescribed me flagyl, which made me sick.. then they gave me clyndamicin, which I opted not to take and instead used boric acid suppositories.. that seemed to clear it right up. Well, it is back and has been for about a week, it has been about 8 months since the last flare up. I have been using boric acid and it didn t help.. I still had the clyndamicin so I opted to go ahead and take it this time, and I m about halfway through.. (4x a day for 2 weeks).. and I m not getting any relief yet.. I have been with the same partner for 2 years now, and I m certain he is faithful as we work and live together.. so WHAT IS GOING ON?..I bought one of the OTC screening tests .. and the yellow did turn a little bluish.. which indicates bacteria not yeast.. but why am I only experiencing burning and no other symptoms.. is this BV? Cervicitis? Urethritis?.. or does it matter? it is all a form of a bacterial infection that is all treated the same way. I really don t want to go back to the doctor at this point.. we spent a fortune last year going back and forth only for them to tell me the same thing... We dont really know.. you have a small amount of bacteria showing but that isn t unusual.. here take an antibiotic! ...

Hi,I have been diagnosed with urethritis by a local urologist on tuesday (Sept 21, 2010). I have been taking Vibramycin 100mg 2x a day for 6 days now. The burning sensation and the itchy sensation are all gone but i still see some transparent discharge from my penis. Is this normal?
