Question: Hello dr, im just worried about a cut on the corona of my penis that happened, i noticed it after masterbating, i ignored it, went away in a couple of days, 10 days later a girl gave me oral sex and i had used a condom on her not sure if it was used properly, 13 days after that incident with the girl i masterbated left the semen in my underwear to dry, 10 hours later i noticed the place where the previous cut was, is raw and red, placed water in it, hurts like hell, is this a cut that reopened? Or another std i remember testing for std"s after 8 days then 4th gen hiv test at 7, 10, 14 weeks post exposure plus herpes and all other std everything came back negative, i just want to rest my mind

Brief Answer:
Most likely local inflammation

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thank You for contacting HCM. My name is Dr Muhammad Ali Rauf & i will look into your problem.

I have gone through your query and would try to help you in the best possible way. The symptoms you mentioned are suggestive of local skin irritation. Skin over the penis is highly sensitive so even a small cut due to any cause like friction can cause severe pain. It is unlikely to be STDs. If i were your treating doctor then i would have advised following things:

- Avoid sex/masturbation till you become healthy again.
- Apply fusidic acid ointment over that area thrice a day
- Keep very good care of personal hygiene.
- keep genital area dry specially after taking bath.
- acetaminophen in case of pain


Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help if not then don't forget to close the discussion and rate it.
Wishing you good health !!

Hello, my name is Michael Boswell. I am a 22 year old part-time student living with my mother. I am writing because I have been to one gastroenterologist before, and they couldn t quite seem to find the answers I m looking for. At the age of 16, I started taking a weight lifting supplement ( creatine pill form) and the day I took 4 of them like what was told on the back of the bottle, I could already tell I wasn t able to hold in my urine, I couldn t even sit down for my football meeting because I had to go to the bathroom to urinate. I then struggled for 2 years through the remainder of High School with severe chronic pain , I went and saw my family doctor who then told me to go see a specialist, and I had two colonscopies and endoscopy done. The gastroenterologist agreed there was something causing my irritation, but couldn t figure out what it was. I had blood work done, and everything came back for Crohns Disease , and they then labeled me with IBS. I m asking for help because I m at a dead end, I still suffer EVERY day with some sort of symptom, whether it be irritation and pain in my stomach, or when I feel a Bowel Movement coming on the urgency that I have because I know I will not be able to hold it in...the medication they had given me worked, but with other symptoms arising. I was prescribed Hyosyamine ER 0.375 MG, and Paroxetine HCL 20 MG. I took them as told on the bottle, and I would RARELY have a BM through the week, but instead I would have one full day (Saturday) of me having to sit on the toilet. I have read that there are no cures, which is very discouraging, this disease or whatever you want to call it, has taken the happiness and normality out of my life, and has replaced it with anger and no hope. I am hoping there is someone that can please help me...
