Hi about a month or 5 weeks ago i noticed that it would sometimes burn while urinating. I also saw the tip swell up and get red. I have been to the doctor twice first visit it was thought that i had a yeast infection since a urine test was taken and no UTI's were found so i was prescribed Nystatin for 1 week. Although nystatin had some effect in the first 3-4 days that didn't last very long and the redness and swelling seems to be back and never going away. I visited the doctor again this time another urine test was taken and nothing abnormal was found in the urine but they have sent it to a lab for culture testing. They told me to stop nystatin and just wait for the results of the urine test. Also there is no discharge nor are there any small pimples or dots on the tip its just red and swollen not even itchy and maybe once every 2 days it burns after urinating for a short while. Also i find that i can't clear my bladder completely because when i sit after urinating there are always a few drops that leak out no matter how well i try to clear it while urinating. I am just nervous and would like to know if anyone has any clue as to what is going on because apart from the redness and swelling on the tip along with occasional burning after urination i have nothing else no fever no chills no blood in urine no discharge no pimples on the tip of my penis. I'm just confused because the doctor doesn't seem to know what is going on and it irritates me on a daily basis to a point where it prevents me from walking alot because it scrapes alot i've even tried switching to tighter underwear full cotton which doesn't let anything flap around and from today onwards i am going to avoid using soap in that area since i heard that may cause irritation too it seems the redness is on the tip and just below it where the head of the penis ends. Please anyone with any help it will be greatly appreciated.
I'm having the same exact symptoms, and the same exact response from my GP, I am going to a different doctor tomorrow and will let you know what he says, you can email me directly at ***@****. Have you heard anything about what it could be?
(I’m NOT Pro-Circumcision nor Anti-circumcision and are only stating the true events that occurred)
Are you uncircumcised? You probably have a severe yeast infection. I had the same exact thing and it continued to worsen even with heavy treatment and was swollen red. Eventually I had to get circumcised and it was a hack job. Unfortunately, I was also diagnosed with very severe Frenulum Breve and had to have my Frenulum removed as well. Thankfully I haven’t had anymore yeast infections since the circumcision. However, since the surgeon didn’t perform the circumcision correctly I had to see another surgeon to correct the damage and thankfully it was entirely reversible. The remaining Frenulum (which painfully wasn’t removed completely) was removed. Now after treatment you literary (I’m not sure how they did it) can’t see the scars (at all) and it looks like it was performed after birth. I’ve been circumcised for several years now and I’m very comfortable. Unlike most circumcisions I’ve seen it looks very good. When the remaining Frenulum was removed they didn’t cut/burn too deep and precisely removed only the piece of skin. I’m not telling you to get circumcised, but if the doctor recommends circumcision and you intend to go through with it—find out everything about circumcision you can before getting it done. If you’d like anymore information then feel free to send a message.
Hi. I just went to the doctor again yesterday. Now this is the whole series of events. Originally i went and was given treatment with Nystatin for a yeast infection. When this didn't work I went to the doc and got a urine sample for their lab and found to be nothing there. The third time I went i was prescribed Apo-Aflox or something like that its an anti-biotic for 10 days. That didn't work either now he has given me Fucidin as a topical anti-biotic for the next 10 days. Its just driving me insane I don't know what to do anymore. The tip and only the tip of the penis is swollen with no discharge whatsoever and no itching there is some redness but i think that is associated to the swelling. Some days the swelling is bigger than others. I am just looking for some help please for i can't work or go to school or even walk for more than 20 minutes not even climb stairs without it hurting me. I fnayone can help please contact me or message back thank you.
