Hello, I have this sore right near my pee hole. I have not been sexually active for over 8 years now. I am not sure if it is from exercising and the rubbing against my clothes. It is very odd. Can I actually carry an STD for 8 years and not have any symptoms until now? I do remember it itching first and now I have a sore. I would hate to have to go to the doctor to tell me that it is nothing. The sore is like a paper cut right on the end of my pee hole. Please help.
Ruling out infection should be the first thing done. A urinalysis should be done to evaluate for STDs like gonorrhea and chlamydia, as well as urethritis.
If you are a male, a rectal exam can be done to rule out prostate infection or inflammation.
If the symptoms continue, a cystoscopy can be considered to evaluate for anatomical abnormalities - like a urethral stricture or polyp.
These options can be discussed with your personal physician, or in conjunction with a urologist.
Followup with your personal physician is essential.
