its clean, I am a type 2 diabetic, nothing for prostate, and I have had fever off and on. Could it be prostitis?
Expert:  Dr. Tharun replied 1 year ago.

The symptoms suggests prostatitis especially when the urine test has returned negative. Prostatitis can cause pain in the penis especially in the tip and burning sensation all the time in the perineal region . You need to do a expressed prostatic excretion culture to rule out bacterial prostatitis. Non bacterial prostatitis rarely causes fever. You may have to change the antibiotic to fluoroquinolones or doxycycline if it is bacterial prostatitis. Usually antibiotics are given for 4 - 6 weeks for bacterial prostatitis. If if is non bacterial prostatitis then Alfa blockers, painkillers and anti inflammatory drugs forms the mainstay of the treatment.Discuss these options with your doctor and let me know if you have any questions regarding this.
