For about five months I have had a rash on my scrotum which has been diagnosed as dermatitis. However at about the same time I noticed a slight tingling sensation when I urinate and it is more pronounced when I ejaculate. I saw a urologist a few months back and he found nothing abnormal and even did a scope which was normal. I also have taken both levaquin and doxacycline since that time so I would think any bacterial culprit would have been dealt with.
The slight sensation after ejaculating lasts for a day or so and doesn't return untill the next time I ejaculate.
My PSA was recently checked (1.2 up from 0.9 in a year) and a digital exam was normal.
There is no pain in the prostrate area whatsoever so I am at a loss to understand what's going on here.
This is not debilitating but raises a concern.
Your input would be much appreciated.
I would ensure that any bacterial infection is sensitive to the antibiotics you took. Make sure that the urine was cultured and, if anything grew out, sensitivities to antibiotics checked.
Prostatitis can be difficult to treat. Cases of chronic prostatitis can take up to 12 weeks of antibiotics. Prostatic massage for secretions should be performed.
You have had a cystoscopy, making urethral polyps or strictures less likely.
I would also consider a scrotal ultrasound to ensure that epididymitis is not causing your symptoms.
