About a month and a half ago i had unprotected sex with a woman... About three days after i noticed that my urethral meatus looked a little puffy on one side (it looks uneven because one side is higher than the other). I looked at it in the light and noticed that it looked irritated.
Part of the meatus was really red and looked almost like there was a cut. I have NOT experienced any pain in urination and the irritated part of the meatus is NOT painful at all. I DON'T feel any tenderness or soreness in my testicles either. I DID noticed that every now and then i do feel a pinching feeling in the eurethra that lasts for a couple seconds and goes away.. But i have only experienced this maybe 4 or 5 times since and it didn't really cause me any discomfort. Also back when i first got this I did feel like i had to urinate frequently and i did have feelings like my penis was discharging something but when i would go to the bathroom and look, nothing ever came out. The frequent urination and the feeling of discharge only occured the week after i noticed the redness and has not returned since. Part of me thinks that i got all OCD after i noticed the redness but.....
I went and got tested for HIV, Syphilis, Gonorrhea, and Chlamydia. All tests came back negative.
at the same time I noticed a few little white nubs around the corona (not sure what to call them.. they are thin, white and small, they look almost like Pearly Penile Papules and they aren't painful either.
i've looked up stuff online and pretty much all UTI's and most STDs involve pain while urinating, some irritation, discharge, and/or abdominal pain. I've also seen on other boards of people who had similar redness on the meatus but they all had abdominal pain and tender/sore genitals whereas i only have the redness/irritation. Those people also tested negative for std's and uti's and they came back negative as well.
any ideas?? some sort of fungus maybe??? an irritation to a new axe body gel maybe ( i just started using it around the same time)? Reiters??
Hey there man, sounds like if i explained what went on with me, you nailed it on the button. Kinda starting to drive me nuts. I went to the doctor and he just diagnosed it with a sort of can't figure it out infection and gave me this cream to treat it with. Was suppose to go away within 5 days, and it somewhat did. Its not totally a fixed problem with me and i'm looking for more answers on it before i go back to the doctor and such. How did your problem turn out, or did you get any other feedback on this?
they wouldn't let me keep my last screen name for some reason well.. Good to know i'm not the only one who has had this problem.
So yeah man..i went to a doctor last week (thursday) for a physical and I told him about the redness.. I told him about how i was tested back in september and how they came back negative.. so he looked at it and he told me it didn't look like any std or urethritis he had ever seen...
he also gave me the "can't figure it out" look and said that he thinks it is a fungus of some sort, so he prescribed me Miconazole Nitrate 2% to apply on it... So far i haven't noticed any difference....
Other than your response and what the doctor told me...seems like we are in a similar situation. Anything i've tried to look up online leads me nowhere. Is your problem fixed yet? any updates?
I was in brazi, i had sex with many girls there all protected, but received unprotected oral sex from 3 girls. When came back to the states i had persistent itching of the foreskin, used hydrocortisone 1% and it was gone immediately. Now after 2 weeks i noticed a small bright red cut like line on the very very tip of the penis only the right side. Other then that everything is ok, no discharge, doesn't hurt itch or anything like that, any news on your condition?
Irritated Urethral Meatus - red w/ pinching sensation
Sounds like it's yeast infection!
get some monstat-cream and use it according to the directions...
the redness is where your skin is getting raw--hense the pinching/painful burning itching. The little red-line/cut-like mark on you is where your skin is splitting/breaking apart from the yeast infecting it and making it raw
I have the same sort of Puffy Urethra. A few months ago i had a sore testicle and some abdominable pain so i went t a urologist. He asked me if i had always had a puffy utrethral, and i stated i hadn't. I have had unprotected sex a few times with differente partners in the last few years, but my wife actually went into consultation with me, so I don't know if the doctor held back on further questions to avoid any troubles for me. I was diagnosed however with prostatitis. I am only 28 and the doctor said this was uncommon for someone my age, and doing a little research i learned that this condition could be a result of some STD's. He never sent me to get any blood exams, only urine exams and it showed that i had no infections. I still maintain a puffy urethra all the time, and some times it burns slightly but hardly ever. I really don't know what to do about it.
I have the same symptoms! I have a little puffyness on one side that is kinda connected with skin to the other side. Have had it for 6 months now with no answers after frequent trips to the urologist. We need to keep this thread going until someone has an answer!
I have the same symptoms. I have not had sex in the past 2 years hence why I am puzzled. I have a small scar on the left side of my meatus, but apart from that I do not have any other discomforts such as discharge, pains or itching sensation. But I have experienced that pinching sensation that the first user described which lasts a couple of seconds, doesnt occur very often though.
While urinating did you feel you were discharging something in your urine when you were about to finish urinating because the last urine that comes out when I urinate appears cloudy but does not give me any physical discomfort.
i have the same exact problem. one side of the meatus is raised slightly above the other. i was all worried that maybe it was HPV (a genital wart) on the very tip of the meatus and maybe inside but i have no idea. it's driving me absolutely crazy! anyone with any ideas at all?
I have a crazy rare problem too for the past 2 months but it is diff but i would luv info. I have a skin piece sticking out of my pee hole (urethral meatus) it even has small slits in it naturally if u look super closse. it sticks out only barely a few cm and has NO pain and nothing diff except pee doest shoot out as far or the same way. it seems like its just supposed to be inside further but now its just loose or something and for some reason is now right in the opening, and is more visable if im Hard. Any ideas
I have the same symptoms as all of you...do you think it just may be a yeast infection? From what I've read up about male yeast infection, it sounds like it could be it. Anyone out there get their problem cured?
i have pain while urinating, and irritated red skin on the genitals, like it doesnt itch, only if i touch it and irritate it, but its red, there are no blisters or sores, but could this be herpes? im getting tested for chlymedia as the doc thinks thats waht it is, but there is no discharge! so is this a yeast infection then? please help im freking out!
I have similar story.
Red swollen meatus, less forceful ejaculation, "outward" looking lips of penis (meatus).
It didn't go away after 2 years of treatment with different antibiotics, antifungals and what's not.
Just recently I've been diagnosed with inguinal hernia. So it could be related.
Another thing to look, I think one of us has to perform urethroscopy and to see if there are any abnormalities, like polyp for example. HPV protruding somewhere could be another option.
Hmmm same issues for me and I was also diagnosed with a very small inguinal hernia last year. Meatus is red mostly on one side, most noticeable when flacid after ejaculation. It is painless although I have a little toruble peeing and sometimes painful ejaculation. Diagnosed with chlamydia over a month ago and treated, but Dr. says this is not a chlamydia type symptom, must be fungal. Fungal cream didnt help. Scrotum red as well for the past month, experienced jock itch along with chlamydia 1 month ago which has gone away.
WOW- I came accross this forum- I too have the pinching sensation/ redness itching at the tip of my urethra-all started after receiving oral sex.. no drs can tell me what the hell it is- it comes and goes- this all going on for the past 3 years- it is making me crazy- been tested for everything and everything negative- any one get any answers?
Everything posted above is similar to what I'm dealing with.
Let's start here:
Anybody a smoker or marijuana smoker?
Anybody drinking beer daily?
Other diets, please list.
I say this as it might be a form of candida (look it up for more details). If thats the case, a change in diet may be needed (again, look up the details). The beer explains an intake of yeast. The grass explains a mold...
