Although : Although not a classic presentation. Jock itch (yeast infection) can present this way. You should try an over the counter anti-fungal cream like Clotrimazole twice a day for about a week or so. If this does not work you should see your doctor for a complete medical evaluation and treatment as deemed necessary. ...Read more

Urethral stricture?: If you're the same 19 year old from Japan who asked a similar question, including pus dripping from penis, you can ignore my suspicion of STD . But only if it is true you are a virgin, including no oral sex. At your age, UTI or urethral discharge suggests infection due to an anatomic abnormality of the urinary tract, such as restricted urine passage or stone. See a urologist ASAP. ...Read more

Probable STD: "Pus discharge" from the penis is almost always due to STD, such as gonorrhea, nongonococcal urethritis, or chlamydia. True UTI is rare in men your age, but many doctors don't understand and misdiagnose urethritis as UTI. I suggest stop all current treatment and see an infection or STD specialist. (In Japan, most STD specialists are urologists.) Your sex partner(s) also must be checked. Good luck! ...Read more

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

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
