Hi - I am 34 yrs old and was resently diagnosed with a UTI and tested for Chlamydia because of unprotected oral (not vaginal). I have been taking CIPRO which has cleared up the discharge with no problems. The CIPRO has been rough on my system, diarrea, etc... I have also been VERY ANXIOUS about this and fear somthing else may be wrong. I keep reading about Prostate problems and Herpes?? The internet can give far too much info. The problem I am having is that on occasion (lasting maybe 10-15 seconds), it feels like a "vibration" at the base of my penis???
A few years ago, I had an itching feeling on and under my scrotum (upper-inner thighs)which occurred after what I believed was sweating and dampness down there and regular jock itch cream cured it pretty quickly. HOW MUCH DAMAGE CAN ANXIETY CAUSE AND WHAT SHOULD I DO????
The vibration seems to go away when I'm moving around and more prevalant when I am sitting (like I do for hours at work)...I am urinating just fine with no discomfort, discoloration...
I did do a no-no and masturbated a couple times during the CIPRO treatment. Did I aggravate anything??
Difficult to say without examination. Cipro is normally pretty good in the treatment of prostatitis, gonorrhea and various types of UTI.
If there is evidence of chlamydia, then you may want to add on doxycycline or azithromycin to the antibiotic regimen.
Other possibilities can be a fungal infection or dermatitis - if that is the case, various anti-fungal or steroid creams can help.
If there is a concern about prostatitis, you can obtain a digital rectal exam and send off any prostatic fluid for analysis and culture.
These options can be discussed with your personal physician.
Followup with your personal physician is essential.
