2 months ago I had a brief (2 min) oral sex encounter. I was the receiver. After coming to my senses, I quickly went to the bathroom and used a bar of soap and cleaned off my penis. Several hours later I felt a tingle inside my penis head. For over 8 weeks now I have had on and off again mild irritation around the tip of my penis and around the glans. The back of my penis head is red and irritated to my penis lips. At nearly 7 weeks, I had a herpes culture and blood test done and both came back negative. No signs of lesions or sores but the area did tingle at times. What could this be?

Dear Sir
The cause of your symptoms is unrelated to oral see you have received. From the clinical picture provided it appears to be Balanitis (inflammation of the glans penis).

As other test are negative it is very reassuring. I would suggest you the following

1.clean the glans penis thrice a day with lukewarm water and mild soap
2. Local application of combination of antifungal like Clotrimazole and steroid like Betamethasone applied twice a da for 3weeks will be curative

Do keep me updated

Take care

Best regards
Dr T Shobha Deepak
