Penis White Milky Discharge

PLEASE HELP!  I have noticed a white milky discharge from my penis.  I am married and my wife and I have only been committed to eachother, so I know it's not an STD.  But there is something else concerning me.

A couple of weeks ago I got a scrotal sac peircing in the lower front center of my scrotum sac.  That's where the testicle sac (the skin only) is pierced.  I found out that a little infection is a normal part of the healing process in any piercing, but has to be kept clean continuously for healing to be complete.  I didn't want to deal with that and decided to remove the piercing about a two or three days later.  My concern is that the white milky discharge may be the result of the piercing... could this be the case?  Could the root of all this be from an infection in my scrotum?  Or is this a totally different thing?

There is no pain in peeing.  However... I may be experiencing a slight discomfort in my bladder... I might just be being paranoid.  This raises another question.  Could the piercer who pierced me... accidentally pierced something major, like perhaps the tubes that connect to the testicles within the sac?  Could something be damaged and be causing maybe some type of urine or semen backflow?

I've done some reasearch on here and online and have come up with different possible answers.  Answers anywhere from inflammation of the urethra... to prostrate problems.  Maybe this has nothing to do with the recent piercing I recieved, and might be coincidental.  In either case... anyone's help on this will be very much appreciated.

The correlation of the white discharge should be easy. If you developed the discharge after the piercing, it is likely that the piercing may have caused an infection that spread or damaged some structures within the scrotum.

Other causes of discharge form the urethra include, STDs, UTIs, prostatitis, etc. You may need to have a urinalysis done, preferably from a sample collected just after ejaculation. A prostate fluid analysis can also be done. This is to identify the organism causing the infection and may be followed by a culture sensitivity test to determine which antibiotic the organism is sensitive to.

Antibiotic therapy is prescribed for long durations in prostate infections in view of the poor permeability of the prostate gland to antibiotics. The course will be for about 15-21 days and may even be for a few weeks.

Ensure that you keep your fluid intake over 2000 ml per day and avoid prostate irritants, such as caffeine, alcohol, citrus fruits, and spicy foods. Also avoid sitting for long periods of time or on surfaces that are not well padded, as this has been known to cause prostate irritation.

If you do indulge in intercourse during the period of treatment, ensure that you practise safe sex (condoms) so as to not infect your partner.

Do keep us posted on your doubts and progress.
