What causes burning sensation near testicles and penis?

Im a 26 yr old male and yesterday I got this quick burning in my groin on the right side where my testicles and penis meet. It went away quickly but I dont know if its in my mind that I still feel something, because when I dont think about it its not there. It doesnt burn anymore after the first burning feeling and there is nothing their. I am only sexually active with my wife, could this be a STD?

As per your history, it may be due to fungal infection.

For that you can apply clotrimazole ointment locally. For itching, you can take tablet loratadine.

Along with that maintain proper hygiene. Avoid hot and humid environment. Try to bath twice a day. Use loose undergarment

Hope I have answered your query and let me know if I can assist you further.

Hello Dr. My husband all of a sudden felt a burning sensation on his testicals and penis he has no discharge, however states there is a slight burn when urinating. He says the burning, on a pain scale, is about a 5. I don t have any burning but we have been having a little more sex than usual and I am a bit bruised internally. What should we do to ease his discomfort and to prevent any other problems? And what could have caused it?

Four years ago I had protected sex with a woman (I am male) and 3 days later had a terrible burning sensation on my penis and testicles. No rash or discharge, just terrible skin burning. Since then, it has come and gone, but always been slightly present. Sometimes, however, it becomes intolerable. I have been tested for all STDs several times, prostatitis and herpes four times - always with negative results. In fact, the most recent herpes blood test was done in December 2010, with negative results for both HSV1 and HSV2. I have also visited a urologist who did no tests and told me it was probably not a urology problem. A neurologist did some minor tests but found nothing. There are no marks, no lesions, no spots, no discharge, no bumps or anything other than an incredibly painful penis and testicles. Occasionally it feels like there are cuts or tears, but there has never actually been any. Sometimes, when I am standing it feels a little less painful. When I am sitting, the burning can also be felt in the thighs. Do you have ANY idea what this might be or what I could try to alleviate it? It has been many years and I am at my wits end. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
