Customer Question
This is a bit...

This is a bit embarassing but i feel like i constantly have to pee (my penis sort of buns or itches somtimes) which started a couple of days ago. also my butthole itches, whcihc started at the same time. but the weird thing is there are no visible symptoms of anything or I can't relieve the itchiness with scratching, it just doesn't work

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?

Like i said, only a couple of days. when i do pee, the itch o my penis goes away but then comes right back, but other than that, nothing really. it sort of just gets better or worse oj it's own

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No, nothing significant to this

Your symptoms are suggestive of prostatitis. This is a non STD prostate infection due to pyogenic organisms which causes referred symptoms to penis, urethra and urinary symptoms. To confirm the diagnosis, following are helpful;

1) A digital rectal exam by doctor would elicit tenderness on prostate.

2) A urine culture

3) Semen culture

4) Culture of prostate fluid after prostate massage expressed from penis.

The culture tests not only confirms the infection and causative organisms but also tells about the most efficacious antibiotic to treat it.

If you have history of unsafe sex; you may get a STD screening, just for precaution.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
