Could a prostate infection be causing pain in my little toe when I have an erection?

Could a prostate infection be causing pain in my little toe when I have an erection?

Possibly; see doctor: One who gets pain at a little toe, while having a prostate infection and an erection, has an intriguing symptom, since the toe is about 3 feet from the prostate. However, nerves that come out of the sacrum (the bottom of the lower back) travel to the prostate, travel to the little toes, and also cause erections. The person may be getting "referred pain" to the toe. A neurologist can figure it out. ...Read more

If side effects are more bothersome than the benefit derived from the medication, discuss with your doctor and consider a different treatment. ...Read more

Since, all procedures for BPH are directed at the inner aspect of the prostate, the transition zone, there is very little risk of erectile dysfunction (ed).

I have sensitive penis which excired rubbing underwear. Idont mean erection, like collecting of prostate fluid which force me to ejaculation but still?

Physiology: I would ask that you go see a physician who specializes in urology. Your descriptions make no sense and are not normal for a man. The only scenario where a non-erect penis is leaking fluid would be an std like gonorrhea or chlamydia or if the prostate gland is inflamed such as in prostatitis. Given the limitations of your ability to describe your problem it would be better to be seen in person. ...Read more
