Can a slightly narrow urethra in a man cause chronic non-std epidymitis? I keep getting it and that is my only real thing wrong with me. All tests neg

If you don't have obvious enlargement and marked tenderness of a single testicle, epididymitis is unlikely. It rarely causes just testicular pain or discomfort without swelling, and rarely both testicles at once. Maybe chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS)? Google it for more info. ...Read more

I am a 77 yr old man with badly inflamed urethra with no stones or scar tissue that is resistant to both AMPICILLIN 500mg & DOXYCLINE 100mg Lota pain.
See Urologist: After 2 courses of antibiotics, is likely that your problem is not bacterial. Viral or fungal etiologies come to mind, and both have slightly different clinical presentations. Would recommend seeing a urologist if your PCP's care has not helped. There are treatments available once a proper diagnosis has been made. ...Read more
Can use of Monistat topically in men, on the head of the penis, cause burning sensation/skin sensitivity and urethral irritation?
Yes you can it: is only the same medicine as in some antifungal creams that you would put on your skin.
