Hi Dr Anil,Thanks for the response.
Its only 1 bump ; which i feel is due to my hair follicle after shaving
Doesnt feel fluid filled ; feels like a mosquito bite
Slight burning sensation when I urine (Only started today)
Sexually Active but always wear condoms
No Penile Discharge
No Abdominal Pain or fever
No Medical History or medications taken
Been having a bad case of haemorrhoids and constipation thoughThanks,
Health Professional: Dr. Anil, Doctor (MD) replied 2 years ago

Hello,

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,these are not interlinked.

You can try some self care measures for few days to see if they respond.

Drink plenty of fluids.

You can take OTC cranberry juice and AZO tablets for 3-5 days.

Also apply OTC Bacitracin ointment on bump for 3-5 days.

Take OTC Motrin and metamucil.

Eat fibre rich diet.

If burning sensation still persists then urinalysis should be done to rule out urinary tract infection.

You can avoid spicy,fried foods for a while.

Wear loose cotton undergarments.

Most likely you'll be fine.

Use reply to let me know if you have further queries.
Please to not forget a positive rating.

Hi Dr AnilThanks for this ; am just concerned about this UTI as its never happened to me before.Just thought of letting you know that my right side of the body feels a little throbby and the burning feels more pronounced now as it lingers after passing urine.Just one question - can I get a UTI through unprotected oral sex?
I strictly use condoms for intercourse thoughThanks
Health Professional: Dr. Anil, Doctor (MD) replied 2 years ago

Hello,

UTI in men can be caused due to improper hygiene,inadequate fluids intake,unprotected oral or vaginal sex.

You can try such self care measures as we have discussed earlier which provide you relief.

If your symptoms'll persist more than a week then see your doctor for further evaluation and management.

Hi Dr Anil,Its been about 5 days now ; and the burning sensation has improved. Though sometimes i do get an uneasy sensation while urinating and at times there is a slight burning pain right at the tip of of my penis ; which goes within a few seconds. Is this normal in the recovery process?Also another thing which i am noticing is this pain around my lower back area and sometimes it radiates down to the feet at my right side. Is this something to be concerned about?Looking forward to hearing from you,
Sashi
Health Professional: Dr. Anil, Doctor (MD) replied 2 years ago

Hello,

It's a good sign your symptoms are improving over the time.

And you should continue self care measures as we have discussed earlier.

You should do gentle massage with muscle relaxant ointment and apply warm compresses with a heating pad on lower back and other affected area.

It seems to be nerve impingement at lower back resulting in intermittent pain radiating to leg.

You can go for physical therapy which 'll be very effective.

Also avoid heavy weight lifting.

Take OTC Motrin.

And see your doctor for a clinical examination for further evaluation and management.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
