What causes tingling sensation on penis?

Posted on Mon, 2 Mar 2015 in Skin Hair and Nails
Question: Hi, I've had a tingling sensation on the left side of my penis and i can feel it in my hip. the skin on the head of my penis also peels and flakes from time to time.I've been tested for STD's and the only one i was treated for was chlamydia because they found a white substance in my urine even though the never told me my test results. Even after that and also taking anti viral meds (they thought it was herpes because there were blisters but they haven't shown up in about four months)this problem has been going on for 6 months now.

I haven't had any discharge since I was treated for chlamydia nor have I had any blisters or lesions but I do have dry areas on my penis head and flakes and peels. I did have un protected sex with another man back in XXXXXXX of 2014
