I went to my doctor this morning and he is going to refer me to a urologist,gastroenterologist and surgeon at least that is what he said.Just don't know when that will be: Sad .I just pray that it's soon.

Been given Metronidazole,Doxycycline and Sertraline.

I am determined to fight this to the bitter end.

Oh nearly forgot they are going to do an ultrasound aswell.

Please keep us up to date on this, I went to another doctor yesterday with the exact same results as the previous three doctors, "its nothing, it will go away on its own..." i pretty much had to beg for a prescription, which they have me 1% hydrocortisone cream, which i know will not work. ive had three complete sti/std screenings with all negative results. im going to my family doctor again tomorrow to get a referral to a urologist and dermatologist. its very annoying when the doctor tells you that the previous doctor was right and i have nothing to worry about. they dont have to live with this annoying irritation.

Went to the hospital they did an ultrasound on my abdomen and my testicles and they found that I have cysts in my testicles and I also have kidhey stones in my left kidney which are pretty much well embedded.
Results are going to be sent to my doctor and a specialist so I have to wait to see what action is to be taken,will keep everyone updated on my progress.

I had unprotected anal sex with a girl about 2 weeks ago. I had noticed that very night, beforehand, that my meatus lips looks a little bigger than usual. A few days later I saw that one side was slightly higher, the opening looked slightly different. There's no "blisters" or "bumps" but my urethra is sensitive, tingles a bit sometimes and feels weird during urination. The appearance of the opening is what concerns me the most, I hope it's just irritated from being careless and will go away.

I recently got tested for STDs/infection beacuse my urine was cloudy but all tests came back negative, doc just told me to drink more water.

I have no idea what it is. The raised lip has a slightly red ridge/line running along the inner-top. I just hope it isn't herpes.

Right here goes with my results,went to the doctor and he gave me a printout of my results last week;

-clinical history;recurrent UTI's,pain left testicle
-Ultrasound KUB region
-There are at least two small calculi in the lower calyx of
-left kidney which is mildly ectatic.Overlying cortex is
-thinned with likely minor scarring.Rest of the
-pelvicalyceal system is normal.The stones measure 7 and 6mm
-size.The left kidney as such measures 10.8cms in
-bipolar dimension.Normal appearances of right kidney
-(10.1 cms size) and urinary bladder.Prostate unremarkable.
-Retroperitoneal vessels normal
-Conclusion;left renal calculi in the lower calyx with mild
-focal caliectasis.No other obstructive features.Further
-IVU may be considered.

-Ultrasound scrotum:
-There are numerous tiny to small calcific foci in both
-testes with mildly hyper echoic parenchyma.Also the
-vascularity is increased.Right testis is 40 x 19 x 25mm and the
- left one is 38 x 17 x 23mm size.Both epididymi are normal
-except for small 3mm simple cyst on right side.There are
-mild varicoceles on both sides,left left side slightly more.No
-fluid collection.
-Conclusion:Appearances are suggestive of testicular
-microlithiasis with chronic orchitis on both sides.Mild
-varicoceles on both sides.Small epididymal cyst on right
-side.

-Recommendations:Specialist referral and 6 monthly follow up
-Ultrasound for testes as microlithiasis is known to be
-associated with testicular tumors .Further chest x ray may
-be advised to look for associations like alveolar
-microlithiasis.

So there we have it .I asked the doctor if this could be why the skin on my scrotum is redand he said yes it could so now I am waiting to see a specialist and have x rays done on my chest will let you all Know how things progress.

Kind Regards

redness around Meatus
I have the same type of redness . I am going to be trying tea tree oil in a bath 10 - 12 drops to see if it works.. I never had unprotected sex but wend to a massage parlor sometimes. I did have sex with a sex worker once , but used a condom so I don''t think it''s from that. This all started after an infection that I got. here is what I posted in a diff forum.

I am a 35 year old married circumcised male. I had been going to massage parlors on occasion ( maybe 20 times over the year ) however they would only masturbate me with the use of some baby lotion with their hands and sometimes with their breasts. I never had oral or anything like that. I once back in ( Oct 2008 ) had intercourse with a prostitute for 5 min but with a condom and it was intact afterwards. She was not someone of the street but a prostitute non the less. The only other thing that had happened out of the ordinary ( prior to this infection ) was that I cut the tip of my meatus ( just beside my pee hole ) with an electric razor while shaving that caused it to bleed a little bit.. This happened around the 20 th of Nov 2008.

Just over a year ago Dec 2nd 2008 I had some sort of infection on the tip of my penis. It appeared that there was something leaking out that was sticking to my underwear that hurt quite a bit. I immediately went to a clinic to get it checked out. I have never had any issues with my penis until this point in time so I was a little nervous and did not tell the dr about the intercourse experience however did say that I had gone to a massage parlor. He gave me some treated me for Chlamydia and gave me antibiotics DOXYTAB (Doxycycline) for 10 days with some cortozid steroid 1% cream for the pain. The initial leaking symptoms cleared up relatively quick however there seemed to be a lingering redness on the head of my penis where it would touch my underwear and sore around the meatus "pee hole".

Dec 24th 2008, I went to another clinic as my penis still did not feel normal. The Dr gave me Cipro (Ciprofloxacin) for 10 days and tested my prostate to see if it was enlarged and she said it was not. I also peed into a cup and they tested for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia that came back negative.

Jan 15th 2009 , I went back to the same clinic as Dec 24th , and saw a different dr complaining about the same redness and sort of dull burning pain ( increased while rubbed ). The Dr gave me some Anti fungal cream ( 15 HC 1% Lamisil Cream ). Put that for two weeks but still did not help.

Feb 3 2009, I went to go to see a Urologist , he looked at my penis there was nothing leaking out the hole but it was still irritated ( reddish ) and sore to the touch. He gave me 7 days of Cipro (Ciprofloxacin) but was pretty certain that I did not have an infection.

Feb 27 2009, I went to a general physician for a consultation as I was going to have a vasectomy done. I explained the redness and sore on the top of the head of my penis and he told me that it looked to "norrmal" and told me to stop using any creams.

March 16th 2009, I went to my general physician and explained that I had this red irritated spot that made my penis sensitive to the touch and hurt. She gave me 14 days of Diaxaprol antibiotic but before that swabbed my penis with a Q tip to check for gonorrhea and chlamydia. Both of these tests came back neg when the Dr called me on April 10th.

April 14th 2009, Came clean to my dr about possible exposure to STD''s ( massage parlors and prostitute ) and she gave me a full STD screen as well as my wife since I had told her the entire story. On April 17th, all of the tests from the std screening ( HIV 1, 2, , HPV, Syphilis , HCV & Herpes ) came up negative for me and for my wife.

April 28th 2009 ( probably unrelated ) had strep throat Dr gave me 40 APO PEN VK 300 mg 10 days (antibiotics )

From april on the redness and pain never really went away. If I was more active and my penis would rub against the inside of my underwear the more sensitive it would be.

July 8th 2009, went to see a dermatologist and he looked and said it appears a bit irritated but otherwise nothing wrong. Told me to not use heavy scented soap for laundry

July 30t 2009, Red dots started to appear on the head of my penis. I went to the clinic and the Dr said he thinks that it''s fungus and gave me antifungal corticosteroid ( 15 lotriderm cream ) to use for 2 weeks.

August 15th, re tested for HIV in case there was something missed the first time around. Test came back neg.

Oct 7th 2009, went to another dermatologist and he told me that he did see the redness ( like where it touched the underwear ) and could have been irritated but otherwise normal skin.

Oct 23 2009, went to have vasectomy done and Dr said that he still see''s that it''s red but does not look infected or anything out of the norm

Dec 17th 2009, appt with the same Dr who did vasectomy again and explained what I have written above and he said the only think that he could think of is that I have nerves pulling on my genital area so he send me for a CT Scan. Still waiting results.

I know that this is a lot of detail however I am going into detail to see if someone can help me figure out why my penis is still red and irritated to the touch. One thing that I did not mention is that when I have intercourse or oral sex not the sensitivity is through the roof and I ejaculate WAY faster because of this. In the summer of 2009 I had gone to see a Psychiatrist and she told me that I had OCD because I was always checking on the internet about my condition. It seems as though the Dr''s think that my symptoms are psychosomatic and all in my head. I can say that I understand what they are saying but I find it hard to believe that this would be going on for more then a year and it''s all in my head.

To summarize, dull burning , discomforting pain in the head of my penis for over a year that seemed to have started after the infection ( possible STD ) . Red irritated when rubbed on my underwear and painful / very sensitive during sexual intercourse or oral sex.

Hi lavr

do you have any other symptoms like pain or frequent urination or not emptying your bladder properly.I'm only asking because it could be worth getting an ultrasound done.

Hi there Karlonski.. I''ve read about that and thought of Prostitis ( think that''s how it''s spelled ). I don''t seem to have frequent urination and it only burns slightly if I am dehydrated ( like very yellow pee ).. I normally go often cause I drink a lot of water and coffee ect throughout the day... I can empty my bladder ok, the only thing that I find ( and this may be over analyzing ) is that there seems to be a little dribble at the end when I pee.

What do you think an Ultrasound would do ?

I am experiencing the same exact thing.
Hello, I have the exact same symptoms as you have. Did you you ever find out what it was? I pee normal, and all but the irritation on my meatus will not go away, and yes there is a little dribble when I am done peeing, but I thought that was due to the meatus being swollen, hopefully you are feeling better, but please pass on ANYTHING you have learned, this is AWFUL. Thank you

Just thought it may help if they check out your kidneys and your testes and your prostrate.

Similar symptoms, comes and goes about every four to six weeks. STD tests all negative.

Sometimes I see inflammation elsewhere. Have noticed simultaneous constipation/gas, anal itch, bladder not fully emptying, swollen meatus and sometimes even heart burn. Very mild and eventually saw consistency in symptoms.

Doctor suggested Crohn''s at one point at wants to look at my gastro-intestinal track. Candida possible. Thought about food or soap allergies too - I know some soaps irritate my skin.

I had asthma as a child and also have mild eczema. I have read that candida and asthma are common together. Do others on this thread have a history of asthma?
