Number of things: However, at your age, may be related to either stress, hormones, or medications. You should get checked out just to be safe.

My penis was tingling for a few hours after unprotected oral but then it went away what does that mean?

Likely nothing: Did you ejaculate during the oral sex? If you did not, the tingling may be just be residual sexual tension. Consult this site for safer sex guidelines:

Tingling/paresthesia: A pinched nerve or nerve deprived of oxygen can result in a tingling, heat, or cold sensation. Competitive cyclists can have this happen to the pudendal nerve after prolonged cycling, causing scrotal/penile symptoms. Symptoms that can accompany this include inability to control the bowels and bladder. Recurrent tingling/cold feelings without clear reason would warrant getting seen in clinic. ...Read more

My penis has been tingling after I took male enhancement pills or is it because I had unprotected oral? Also I have a little red dot under the head

Penile lesion: I doubt that any male enhancement pill could cause this symptom but unprotected oral sex can be associated with herpes, syphilis, hepatitis A, venereal warts, oral cancer, human papilloma virus infection and other STDs. If your symptoms persist or if your penile lesion worsens you should be checked. ...Read more

Tightness inside of anus and tingling sensation on penis, Received unprotected oral last week, feel this when standing for a while, what could it be?

Sounds like anxiety: This repeats an earlier question, this time with the new information about your sexual exposure. This makes me even more suspicious about genitally focused anxiety, i.e. heightened awareness of minor symptoms or normal sensations because of your concerns about the sexual exposure. No STD is likely, and of course you can't get an anal STD by this contact. But see a doctor if you remain concerned. ...Read more

During sexual intercourse I never feel an sensation or tingling, I feel nothing, I can feel the penis but that's all what could this be? Help me plz

Not sure understand: What are you thinking you are supposed to be feeling? Sexual intercourse & intimacy are very complicated both physiologically & psychologically, especially for women. Is this a new partner & things are different from before? Is this a first for you & you don't know what to expect? Have you been abused, perhaps to the point of sustaining trauma? Best to get an exam & talk in person to gynecologist. ...Read more

Can Protopic be used on the Genitals: Foreskin, Shaft, Head of Penis? Is mild tingling sensation normal?

For what?: It all depends on what type pf symptoms you are having. Probotic is usually prescribed for atopic dermatitis (eczema) which is mostly seen on other areas. If on perineal area usually happens on groin area. I would suggest you get evaluated first since this medication should not be used or used cautiously if there are other issues going on.

I had safe sex three weeks ago, starting to feel a slight tingling at tip of penis, no other symptoms. Should I be concerned for STI?

I had safe sex three weeks ago, starting to feel a slight tingling at tip of penis, no other symptoms. Should I be concerned for STI?

Not an STD symptom: STDs don't do this, and too much time has passed. And since the sexual exposure apparently was safe (by which you presumably mean there was no penetration, or a condom was used), the chance of any STD was low to zero. Symptoms like this often are psychological, especially if there is anxiety or regret about the sexual exposure. ...Read more

Tingling feeling in my penis started two days ago. Not pain full at all, just feels funny. What can it be doctor? I've never had sex I am only 16.

Tingling feeling in my penis started two days ago. Not pain full at all, just feels funny. What can it be doctor? I've never had sex I am only 16.

New soap?: My first thought is that you may be reacting to a new soap, lotion, detergent or fabric softener which can all cause funny sensations at first before you have a stronger reaction. Try unscented soaps and detergents, and forget fabric softener. Don't go commando wearing stiff jeans or other rough material. If that doesn't help, see your doc and get it sorted out. Hope this works! ...Read more
