Greetings John.I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.Was a mycobacterial culture done?
Were any antibiotics tried?Dr. Arun
A culture was taken but more specifically for G & C. Both negative. That said, I have taken Fluconazole, Ciprofloxacin and then a course (10 days) of Doxycycline for bacteria. These didn't seem to relieve the symptoms (irritation/redness/stinging) at the opening.
Also several creams - Clotrimazole/Betamethasone, Nystatin nor Triamcinolone Acetonide) were not effective.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
Thanks for using JustAnswer.
Should I assume if I am not having any kind of discharge, pain urinating or blood in urine that it would rule out Urethritis. Also, can eczema cause such an irritation at the meatus (opening of the penis)? Finally, can stress cause such an irritation?
Even though I have never had a visible herpes outbreak (noticeable sores/blisters) can herpes cause the meatus or urethra to be irritated causing the redness irritation at the opening? I have taken valtrex and would think herpes wouldn't last three months. I also understand parasitic (e coli) can cause urethritis but again I have had no discharge or pain urinating - symptoms pointing to urethritis. Just irritation/redness and stinging feeling at the opening.

As you pointed out - your response time was very slow and not very detailed. It felt like short/quick answers. It felt like you wanted to end the session as quickly as possible.
