What causes inflammation at penis tip?

i have a slight rash inside my pee hole. I am 33 years old. I went to doctor 2 months ago because of itching when I urinate. He tested me for std's and tested my urine. My std test was negative. he stated i had a mild bladder infection and gave me antibiotics. The itching stopped after completion of medicine, but I still noticed discomfort. I looked really close last night at my penis and I noticed it was kinda red on the inside at the tip of my penis

Hello,

Clotrimazole (brand name Lotrimin) is an antifungal medication commonly used in the treatment of fungal infections. In your case, it may be an STD (sexually transmitted disease).

Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease sometimes causing painful urination, penile discharge and more.

Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted disease and can cause painful urination and penile discharge.

In cases of infection, a diagnosis can be made by taking a urine sample or urethral swab, and can usually be cleared by a course of antibiotics.

In the case of a sexually transmitted infection, it is recommended that sexual partners are also treated.

Antibiotic treatment will be helpful for you. Continue applying antifungal ointment.

The most secure way of prevention is definitely sustaining from sexual intercourse. Another option is to be in a long-term monogamous relationship with an uninfected partner.

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

Take care

Regards,
Dr Iven Romic Rommstein, General Surgeon

I have a catheter in place and I have been having complications from the catheter tube being blown up in the urethra tube and having severe bladder spasm s where I was not able to sit down. This all comes from a prolapsed bladder. A Dr put in a mesh implant that has gone terribly wrong and it was done on Dec. 18/13. I have not been able to urinate since then. I have had many infections and the urologists and the Dr. that did the operation doesn t know what s wrong because she has done so many. I believe my body is not accepting the mesh sling.
