Question: Hi, I just recently had an STD test all clear. I have some slight discharge and feel a slight tingling sensation in my penis. I think its a small infection of some type as previously I have had clamidia and the symptoms are similar but not severe. More annoying than painful.

Brief Answer:
NGU can be a likely cause

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXX,

Thanks for posting your query,

I am pleased to be able to assist you with your worry.

Since all your STD screening tests are all clear, then it is likely that you are suffering from non-gonococcal urethritis (NGU), which is infection of the urethra not cause by gonococcus bacteria. However, it also requires a course of antibiotics which will help treat the infection.
I do not know if you gave this complain to the health care provider who requested for the STD screening. If that is not the case, then I suggest you present the situation to your primary care so that adequate treatment can be provided.

Hope this helps and wish you the best.
Dr. Nsah

I have been having tingling sensation on my right shoulder. Only about four-five times a day. This has been going on for five days. Only lasts for 10-15 seconds. Feels like ants crawling on me.

I have a dear friend whom woke up one morning with a blackened/ red eye lid. There was a slight swelling but no tingle sensation/ numbness. The discoloration goes over her upper eye lid to almost her nose . She did not receive any trauma to the eye. There is no vision problems, and no other apparent symptoms? I am worried that this could be a secondary condition? I have researched this , and I have come up with no ideas. Any thoughts? Thank you in advance!

Doctor, I am an 18 year old male, I recently came back from a week in Cuba, and about halfway during my stay I started getting minor mouth sores (canker) and a slight tingling/irritation of the skin on the outside of my cheek of the responding side of the sores, very small bumps aswell leading from my lip/mustache line to my chin, slight redness, very small bumps (not visible, you have to feel) and slight dryness of skin, my oral hygiene is very good. I live in Vancouver and it is very cold. my doctor has prescribed me Cortate ointment for the skin on my cheek, but it does not seen to be helping.
