Question: Hi, I received oral sex about two weeks ago. About 7 days later, I began having mild itching at tip of penis. I noticed mild pain after ejaculation too following masturbation. I have some mild redness at my foreskin. There are no other symptoms. There is no discharge, clear or colored. The itching is only occasional. I have applied antibiotic ointment to penis head a couple of times.
