Are you sexually active?

Ask Your Own Urology Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Not sexually active. I am sorry to say that I am rather a hermit (using my mom's credit card for this :-)). I do masterbate A LOT, because I have severe OCD so I have trouble dealing with people. I am really worried about this. My mom says that when I was little, my penis would swell and have a discharge and she would take me to the doctor.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Sorry to bother, but when do you think I should receive an answer? Thanks!
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Will my question be answered? Thanks!

This looks like you have an infection on the skin of your penis. It's possible you may have introduced some bacteria under the skin from masturbating. You need to get into see a urologist immediately or go to the emergency room for examination as you will likely need to be started on antibiotics to prevent this infection from spreading. Hope this helps and let me know if you have questions.

Prior to this infection, I had a lump on the top of the penis that was shaped like an eyeball cut in half. Do you think this could be the cause of the infection?
Urologist: Dr. Y., Urologist replied 2 years ago

Yes, that was most likely the cause of the infection. You definitely need to get in to be seen for antibiotics.

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.
