No STD...: ...causes penile itching, and most penile rashes are not STDs. Probably this is a garden variety skin problem that happens to involve the penis.

What could cause my penis to itch uncontrollably? There was also a red mark (rash)?

What could cause my penis to itch uncontrollably? There was also a red mark (rash)?

Ballanitis: A fungal infection under the foreskin. It is normal "yeast" from the women's vagina. It is naturally there but you have an overgrowth (probably due to recent antibiotics). I suggest use of Desenex powder for athlete's foot. It has corn starch to absorb moisture and some anti-fungal medication to control this normal growth. Or have a circumcision and never bother with it again. ...Read more

Can dehydration cause ramdom pain/itch shaft of penis? No UTI/STD. Pain off and on for year. Ultrasound clean. Pain sometimes radiates to left foot?

Not an STD: Dehydration would not do this. STDs must be on your mind, by your topic tags. But it doesn't sound like any STD. Intermittent symptoms ("random", "off and on") often are psychological. Most penile skin problems are standard dermatology problems that can occur anywhere but happen to involve the penis. But best to see a doctor at a time you're having symptoms; better safe than sorry. Good luck! ...Read more

I am experiencing penile discharge, unpleasant smell, itching, penis head is very sensitive, dried smegma, white lumps, Ureaplasma urealyticum? Doxycy

STD? Balanitis?: Probably an STD, much more likely gonorrhea or chlamydia than Ureaplasma, which is a normal bacteria in the genital tract and rarely causes symptoms or disease of any kind. If uncircucised, this might be fungal or nonspecific balanitis, not an STD and might clear up with twice daily foreskin retraction and washing. Either way, you need professional exam and probably STD testing. Good luck! ...Read more
