that redness is normal. I find if I get a boner or I masturbate it will sometimes get a little scaly if the foreskin is rolled back and exposed to the air.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 2 months ago.

that is normal.

make sure pull back the foreskin and wash daily with soap and water

you may benefit from a bit of lubricant like KY jelly if you are masturbating with your foreskin rolled back to keep the head of the penis moist.

let me know if you have other questions.

Doctor I got a quick question. When doing a urine sample does "first catch" mean you start urination into the container first.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 month ago.

doing a urine sample,

it should be a clean catch.

which is getting urine in the middle of your urine stream.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I was reading that Naat testing, specifically for chlamydia and gonnorreh is a first catch for male. They stare that first catch or the beginning of the urine stream has the highest sensitivity for the test for those bacterial infections
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Also it was recommend at the clinic to pee in the cup then afterwards realize the wrest
Of the urine in the toilet. That does not sound like midstream
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Release sorry
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 month ago.

it means you urinate into the container first for a first catch.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Okay makes sense. It recommended that naat testing wants a first catch for that specific test
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 month ago.

yes, that is what first catch means

I have a question. Me and my girlfriend after having sexual intercourse I experience at times a reddish type mark in different areas, but usually one. It's not raised, nor itchy and it appears immoderately after sex then goes away within a Day or so. Is this due to friction? I had sex last night with a condom and when we had finished I noticed it appeared again on the head. Is this due to friction. I read that it is caused by friction and if happens often may be due to being low in vitamin k?

34;Immediately after sex"
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 month ago.

it sounds like it is due to friction.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Why is it so sensitive though. I haven't really had this before unless I have and I'm just looking to much. I don't think it's yeast related because my girlfriend does not complain about being itchy or anything and second of all I always clean after sex and dry with a hair dryer since I am uncircumcised. It's immediately present after pulling out.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 month ago.

the penis is a sensitive place and can be sensitive after sex.
