Urethra burning and Swollen Neck Lymph nodes

History- befor engaging in any sexual act, this girl and me discused prior sexual history...she said she has had been tested and the results where negitive....on top of that she claims to have been with only two people.....I aswell have been tested and have also had negitive results. So we have unprotected sex and unprotected oral sex.

that was two weeks ago Augest 6th 2008.......... around augest 8th my wife and I have sex.........shes prone to Yeast infections..... and gets one.......she apllys cream and its goes away......

As for myself (around augest 10): I started see red around the shaft of my penis with a feeling of burning (slightly, not to major) applyed yeast infection cream......day later the tip of penis feels Irritated and is accompanied by a slight burning sensation.

Day 14: My Lymph nodes in my neck are swollen (i belive) under my ears hurts...... bit of a sore throat....burning at the tip of my penis still there (and still very slightly). Also have Flu like symptoms, and tenderness in stomach.

The women i was with remains very assured that she has nothing, as she has been tested and its was negitive..... and my wife has not had any similar side effects to whats happening to me (yet )

*Review of side effects*- 10 days after- Overall slight burning sensation on the urethra (tip) present through out the day. Little red at the tip and some redness on the shaft (very little). Under my ears seem to be slightly swollen accompined by "head cold" like symptoms and a slight sore throat. Slight abdominal pain. No obvious discharge. No breaking of the skin. No bumps. No blisters.

I saw a doctor yesterday (august 19th)....he says he doesnt see anything, but gave me a full std test.

Questions are:

1. Im scared that i have HIV...... does hiv symptoms include burning in the urethra? or is that just Chlamydia and gonorrhea?

2. Would my symptoms be anything other than an STD? example? would a yeast infection cause swollen lymph nodes?

3. If my wife starts to see the same signs is it safe to say she has an STD?

please help

Hi there -

HIV wouldn't cause these symptoms.

Yes, yeast can cause the symptoms you have on your penis, but it probably wouldn't cause swollen glands, etc.  Stress can do all that, though.

Nope, it could be that you are passing yeast back and forth, or maybe even a flu bug.

If you are going to have sex with women other than your wife, it would probably be a good idea to just use condoms as a rule.  It would save a LOT of anxiety down the road.

Thanks Auntie, your comments and input are very much welcomed and appreciated around this forum, you seem like a very nice person :D

another Question If I will?

I have been putting anti-fungal cream in my penis and the Pain seems to be going away....there are some red dots on the tip of my penis.... not blisters but little red "bumps" i guess would be a better explanation.... I also have lower abdominal discomfort (feels like gas kinda), still no discharge.

I know you cant Diagnose anything (especially over the web) but any idea of what that sounds like? could bacteria cause this many symptoms?

Thanks Again

It could, but its not all that likely.

STDs won't give you gas pains, either.

Did the doctor advise you to use the antifungal cream?

No. The Doctor ran the normal test's to rule out any possible STD's. He hasn't proscribed anything or even gave any notion to what it may be. When I said burning, he just sat up and wrote me out for some tests and said they'll call me. Which to say has left me in this big uncertainty zone.

The burning is subsiding, the "bumps" are hard to describe, there not really bumps, but there not really dots? there not Visible at first glance ( I'm circumsized) , I have to press the skin down around to see them.

Plus the women I have been with ( only 1 and my wife) say they tested negative and are showing no signs. My wife had the yeast ( or what she thinks was a yeast depending on what I may have) but Applied Anti-fungal cream and it went away.... Thus my reason to apply the Anti-fungal.

My alarm for concern is the lower abdominal discomfort, discomfort beside the gentail area, the recent flu like symptoms ( subsiding), Burning of the urethra ( subsiding) and the red bumps (which seem to be most prominent after i apply cream or when I'm palpating the area)

First, stop using the cream if its making things worse, and I'm not sure why you are palpating the area, but stop that too.  Just let it be for a few days - maybe over the weekend, and see how it goes.

When do you get your results back?

ok so i went to the Doctor and he said:

" though we are not going to speculate anything (test haven't come back yet) it doesn't sound like an STD, because they don't come and go that quick, and would not subside with out some sort of treatment"

"because I'm circumsized wouldn't be a yeast infection"

Are both these statements true?

Plus I'm having these lower abdominal pains ( at the bottom of my ribs) seems like it started lower abs (above my groin) and has moved up to under my Ribs. My wife is now started to complain about lower abdominal pain.

I wouldn't be so alarmed If these symptoms just came into being with no cause, I'm worried because of the coincidence of being after sex.

Does this sound like anything to you Auntie? or me being paranoid?

You can get yeast if you are circumsized, and STD symptoms wouldn't come and go like that.

No std would cause pain under the ribs.  Your lower abdominal is down by your groin - by your ribs is your upper abdomen.

I don't know what is going on, but it sounds like its time to focus on something other than stds as a cause.
