Customer Question

Hi Dr. I was having a slight irritate on my penis recently and when I finally took a closer look I noticed a long stair hair- possibly from head or other part of body- that was at near the opening of my urethra. When I pulled it out, i noticed that there was about an inch or so of it down my urethra, which seem exactly the place the pain was coming from. Now freed from that hair, I still have a bit of a sting when I urinate. What are the chances I am experiencing residual irritation from this hair?

Probably while pulling the hair out urethra may be exposed to infection.Or there may be some previous infection.(Urethritis)

Drink plenty of water and take cranberry juice.

It may regulate the urinary tract and help to decrease the irritation.

A urine routine test will help to rule out infection.

If symptoms persist you may visit your regular doctor for further examination and treatment as per urine test reports.

I hope this helps
