Burn at the tip of my penis what else can it be and is it serious? Had chlamydia three weeks ago been on three treatments did every test and came back negative what other possibilities are these

Yeast? Psych?: Already answered once. As discussed there, for sure it isn't chlamydia. Probably no STD at all. If I correctly recall, in your other question you said you tested negative for WBC in your urethra or urine, so probably no infection. Possibly yeast, esp if uncircumcised. Often this problem is psychological. Almost certainly not serious; you should resume sex with your regular partner if you have one. ...Read more
