Can You Get Herpes In Your Urethra
The canal through which urine exits the bladder, discharging the urine externally. In men, it is about 20-cm long with a membranous, prostatic, bulbar, and pendulous segments ending at the glans penis; it gives passage to the spermatic fluid as well as urine. In the female, the urethra is about 4 cm long & in close relation with the anterior ...Read more
Herpes simplex: Yes it is possible that this is the only symptomatic area in which recurrences are happening, but the virus may be resident in other areas of the body.
Here are some...: Herpes virus gains its access to body at the sites of contacts if there is a breakdown by micro-injuries such as frictions at sex / masturbation of local skin or mucosa. How far may it go? To urethra, the synergy of its unique tubing hidden feature and urine flow passage gives virus almost no chance to gain a beachhead to multiply. Therefore, herpes virus only goes up to the very distal urethra.
Rare, very painful: A few percent of men with newly acquired genital herpes have urethral involvement. Most also have obvious external herpes but rarely it is the only symptom, i.e. pain and redness at the opening and/or serious pain on passing urine. If you have symptoms like this and might have been exposed to herpes, see a doc or clinic ASAP. With milder symptoms, herpes probably isn't the cause.
Mild urethra pain for 2 wks. Doxycyline=no effect. Tested neg for chlamyd & gonorhea. Negative herpes swab. Mild symptoms remain. Safe to have sex?
Only if visible: Dr. Would be able to see it only if clearly visible on the outside of the urethra. If the lesions are even inside by 1/8 of an inch, this would not be visible. If you are concerned, you should see a urologist and a cystoscopy could be done in the office to check this out. The procedure is not painful, and will put your mind at ease.See 1 more doctor answer
I noticed a burning sensation in my penis during urination. I found three white bumps close together on the outside tip of my urethra. Is it herpes?
BURNING URINATION: You need to see a urologist to rule out any std or other serious issue.
Fungal infect or STD? 2 negative herpes culture tests. Jockitch cream cleared up 1st time. Still redness around male urethra and occas spots on shaft
Here are some...: Glad to hear your good response to Jack Itch cream. Since, such creams usually contain anti fungal agent with steroid and direct to suppress and rid skin fungal infection, which inflict warm and moist areas like external genitalia and groins - called tine cruris. For the rashes on penile opening and shaft, you may try the same cream and see if responding in 1 wk. If not, seek pro-evaluation.See 1 more doctor answer
Protected sex 9/10.Std screening (alltests) 9/16 - Negative. UTI screening 9/22, neg. Occasionally, slight stinging near tip of urethra after pee. Herpes?
Probably no STD: If no penis contact with partner's genital area before the condom was in place, no STD is a possible explanation for this symptom. You could have herpes contact above the condom, but that wouldn't cause symptoms at the tip. Basic STD/UTI tests are highly reliable. My guess is nothing wrong except maybe anxiety raising your awareness of trivial sensations you would otherwise ignore or not notice.See 1 more doctor answer
Very painful to pee. Inside urethra it looks there are yellow ulcers. 3 red bumps appeared on shaft. Herpes swab and STI test negative. What is it?
Behcet's disease: If the herpes test was negative, then my best guess would be Behcet's disease. I would want to know more about 'exposures' -such as any new sex partner (s)? Sometimes the herpes test will come up false negative. Any other symptoms? A rheumatologist is best suited to helping with Behcet's... A problem of this magnitude needs to be seen by a doctor - so I hope you will call your primary MD today.
Recurrent shingles with Post-Herpetic Neuralgia between outbreaks? There is a lot more to it but not enough space here.....?
Maybe HSV, not VZV: Shingles rarely recurs so frequently, but HSV2 (genital herpes) can do so, with recurrences anywhere from waist to upper thighs ("boxer shorts" area). 1) Retest next outbreak to confirm varicella zoster virus (VZV), and also PCR test for HSV. 2) Have an HSV IgG antibody test, expecting maybe positive for HSV2. 3) Continue valacylovir to prevent recurrences, whatever the cause. The drugs is entirely nontoxic, no reason not to take it as long as necessary. Good luck!See 9 more doctor answers

From herpes viruses: A person can get herpes from another person's fresh herpes sores. The other person may have sores on his or her genitals, lips, fingers, etc..., and transmit viruses by touching the uninfected person. Sometimes, infected persons can transmit herpes even when they don't have visible fresh herpes sores, so prevention is not always possible. Most adults have had oral herpes, as it is so common.
There are different types of herpes infections; herpes simplex infection of mouth (gingivostomatitis) and lips (labialis) are the most common. Others include genital herpes, and herpes zoster. Herpes infection could very mild to very dangerous depending on the type and location of the body affected. I ...Read more
