Hi I am 22 years old and recently had unprotected sex with a female several weeks ago. I feel an itch on occasion right in the tip of my penis and it feels like I have to pee quite often at times when I don't. I also have an itch in my anus that comes and goes and becomes more prevalent at night after a workout and shower. I drink and smoke rather heavily. No discharge, lack of sex drive though. Thanks.

Dr. Saha :

Hello,

Dr. Saha :

Welcome to Just Answer.

Dr. Saha :

When did you develop those symptoms?

Customer:

This week

Dr. Saha :

Do you have any rash?

Customer:

Not on my groin, by around my anus from wiping so often to get rid of the itch

Dr. Saha :

How is urine color?

Customer:

Good, I stay hydrated so mostly light yellow to clear

Dr. Saha :

Do you have any discharge from penis?

Customer:

No

Dr. Saha :

Did you get any examination by doctor?

Customer:

No

Customer:

I am try to figure out whether to get tested for an STD or visit a doctor for something else

Dr. Saha :

The itching sensation can come from many causes.

Customer:

In both places?

Dr. Saha :

Allergy, fungal infection can be there.

Dr. Saha :

After a workout, there can be sweating, which can predispose.

Customer:

The itch continues after until I go to bed, I wake up without an itch

Customer:

but it returns at the same time everynight

Dr. Saha :

However, as it is affecting penis tip, I would suggest to have an examination by doctor.

Dr. Saha :

You can take zyrtec or benadryl.

Dr. Saha :

You can apply creams like lotrimin, lamisil.

Customer:

To my anus

Customer:

?

Dr. Saha :

Yes, you can apply the cream around anus.

Customer:

is it possible chlamydia is causing both?

Dr. Saha :

It is unlikely to affect the anus.

Dr. Saha :

It affects those having anal sex.

Customer:

Is it possible to get an infection from a toliet seat in the penis

Dr. Saha :

But it is not the case with you.

Customer:

Correct

Dr. Saha :

It is uncommon to get it from toilet seat.

Customer:

Could the itch be from diarrhea

Dr. Saha :

Are you having diarrhea?

Customer:

Yes

Customer:

I drink coffee and beer almost daily

Customer:

I assume it is because of my diet

Dr. Saha :

It is possible in case of diarrhea.

Customer:

What about the penis?

Dr. Saha :

Diarrhea makes the area wet.

Customer:

It is the oddest feeling, it also is associated the the anal itching, the timing is almost identical

Dr. Saha :

That area needs an examination by doctor. Though fungal infection can occur in penis.

Customer:

Would there be any other symptoms of a fungal infection

Dr. Saha :

Sometimes scabies can cause symptoms like itching & it becomes more at night.

Dr. Saha :

In fungal infection there can be rash.

Dr. Saha :
My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.

If there’s anything else I can do, let me know
Customer:

I do not believe I have scabies

Dr. Saha :

So allergy, fungus are more likely.

Customer:

It does not burn or itch when I pee but I have lost a little of my sex drive

Customer:

What about an STD?

Dr. Saha :

Usually STD causes some discharge, but you are not having any.

Dr. Saha :

Still doctor can advise a few tests to check those.

Customer:

So the two itches are probably not related by an STD?

Dr. Saha :

Probably not.

Dr. Saha :

Loss of sex drive is often psychological.

Dr. Saha :

if you have anxiety, stress then you can have it.

Dr. Saha :

Overwork, fatigue can be factors.

Customer:

All of the above. Thank you Dr.

Dr. Saha :
You are always welcome.
Dr. Saha :
If you are satisfied, please leave an excellent rating..



Good luck.

Customer:

One last thing Im sorry

Dr. Saha :

Ok

Dr. Saha :

Continue.

Customer:

I will. The urge to pee when I do not necessarily need to..would that be caused by a fungus?

Dr. Saha :

If there is an irritation in the penis, it can cause the urge.

Dr. Saha :

The irritation can be caused by fungus or other infection.

Customer:

What are some causes of fungal infections?

Dr. Saha :

Fungus infection is common.

Customer:

ok thank you again

Dr. Saha :

It can grow in wet areas of skin.

Dr. Saha :

You are again welcome.
