Some penis problems are perfectly common, while other issues can be a little more out of the ordinary. Some of these are no cause for concern — such as your shower gel — while others, like infections, can be more serious. A number of factors could lead to a sore, burning sensation on the tip of your penis.
Penile pain can affect the base, shaft, or head of the penis. It can also affect the foreskin. An itching, burning, or throbbing sensation may accompany the pain.
A year-old man presented to his family physician FP with a one-week history of multiple painful vesicles on the shaft of his penis associated with tender groin adenopathy. The vesicles broke 2 days earlier and the pain had increased. The patient had similar lesions one year earlier but did not seek medical care at that time. He had 3 different female sexual partners in the past 2 years but had no knowledge of them having any sores or diseases.
You have urethritis. This means an inflammation in your urethra. The urethra is the tube that drains the urine out of your bladder through the tip of the penis.
Penile discomfort, skin changes or discharge is most often related to irritation or infection. Because any of these symptoms may be caused by a sexually transmitted disease, you should arrange a visit with your doctor. The goal of this guide is to provide information while awaiting evaluation with your doctor, or for additional information after you have seen him or her.
It could be caused by injury or an infection. If you are experiencing unexplained pain, you should see a doctor without delay. Back to top.
STIs Sexually Transmitted Infections are infections you get from someone else, or pass on to someone, if you have sex with them. Many STIs can be easily cured, but all are dangerous if left untreated. Most often, STIs are transmitted by having vaginal, oral or anal sex with someone — the germs can travel in the semen, in the vaginal fluid or in the blood.
STD symptoms vary, some are obvious, some are hardly noticeable, and some STDs show no symptoms at all. This means the only way you can be totally sure of your status is to get tested. Most STDs are treatable or manageable, but not without professional help.
