I have a burning sensation in my genital area that started

Resolved Question:

Do you have burning while urination ?
Penile discharge ?
Kindly explain what kind of exposure it was ?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
No burning while uninating.
No penile discharge.
The individual in the sauna played with my penis with his hand. There was know direct penis to penis contact. There was no oral sex or anal. Afterwards in the shower he pressed himself up against my backside for few seconds.
Expert:  Dr Anil Kumar replied 4 years ago.
Hand job's are usually considered one of the least risky forms of sex play .
So chances of STD transmission from what you describe is less likely .
You can opt for a urine routine examination to rule out any associated urinary tract infection as well .

Based on on my web research Genitiall Herpes can be spread by skin to skin contact. I do not know if this individual had herpes, but if he did and touched his genitials prior to rubbing my penis with hand could he have spread the virus to me?
Expert:  Dr Anil Kumar replied 4 years ago.
Well genital herpes can spread from skin to skin contact .
If symptoms do occur, they will usually appear 2 to 7 days after exposure .
And the lesion in genital herpes look like small blisters or ulcers on the genitals and the blisters or ulcers tend to be grouped into crops .

I did go to the doctor and had a urine test. The initial test in the office showed white blood cells. He checked my prostate and found it enlarged. He placed me on an antibiotic and thought I probably had a prostate infection. He also sent my urine sample out for a culture test. The results from the culture test came back negative -- no infection. I have been feeling better after taking the antibotic and the strong burining sensation in my gential area has susbsided. The doctor recommended I continue the antibotic and thought the culture test may not have reflected the prostate infection.

I am still concerned about gential herpes. It has been 28 days since the exposure and I do not have any blisters. I have not had any fever, headaches, swollen lymph nodes, but my scrotum appears to have some redness.

Would apprecite you commenting on the doctor's response and my concerns about gential herpes.




Expert:  Dr Anil Kumar replied 4 years ago.
Well at your age enlarged prostate can be a common finding and prostatitis can be indeed a possibility.
Also you can request your doctor for a blood test called as PSA .( Prostate-specific antigen) .
Prostatitis may often cause elevated PSA.
Also since you symptoms improved with antibiotic suggest bacterial pathology since there is no effect of antibiotics on viruses .

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I have now completed all but four days of my (14 day dosage) antibiotic, and still have symptons of a mild buring sensation in my penis. Have relieved the discomfort with one advil taken every 12 hours. I had two glasses of wine last night causing the burning sensation to increase. I have no fever or other symtoms. When should the burning sensation go away and why am I having an adverse reaction to the wine? Do you still think this could be a prostate infection.
Expert:  Dr Anil Kumar replied 4 years ago.
Well your doctor may want to add a urinary alkaliser like DISODIUM HYDROGEN CITRATE SYRUP ( Urinary Alkaliser) to reduce the urinary acidity and help in decreasing burning .
Probably wine has effected the PH of the urine.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
The mild buring sensation in my penis has never gone away even though with the anitbiotic it is not as acute. How long should it take for the burning situation to stop?
Expert:  Dr Anil Kumar replied 4 years ago.
Well in patients with chronic prostatitis antibiotics may be prescribed for several weeks .
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I do not have a burning sensation when I urinate but just a continous burning sensation in my penis. Is that normal for prostitatis?
Expert:  Dr Anil Kumar replied 4 years ago.
Burning sensation you describe may be related to prostate infection .
