Apply tight dressing with soft cotton pad and bandage and let it be there for 6 hours by the time bleeding is bound to stop .

Ensure to rink more water to get clots flushed out with urine .

I masturbated with Cetaphil, it entered my urethra and it's a little more difficult and painful to urinate. My shaft stings to the touch when I press where the head base is. It throbs and stings every now again and when I urinate, and now I can't stay errect. I hadn't had sex 6 months prior to this incident, can I rule out an STI?

I have a slight stinging feeling when I urinate. It feels like it comes from the bottom of the urethra. It lasts while urinating and for approx 20 minutes after. I also noticed a extremely red bump with a dark center on the head of my penis. I m not sure how long that has been there since I just noticed after the stinging started. I have a dr appt this week and wanted to know what to expect or what I should ask while there. Thanks.
