One side of my urethra itchy and a bit swollen, what could be wrong?

Male or Female: You can not see your urethra as only visible is the urethral opening through which the urine comes out. If you mean your urethral opening is swollen, it may be due to an infection and as it is also itchy it can be due to allergic reaction to a bite or something else. Whatever it is if it is of concern you should have it checked by your doctor.

Urethra (Definition)

The canal through which urine exits the bladder, discharging the urine externally. In men, it is about 20-cm long with a membranous, prostatic, bulbar, and pendulous segments ending at the glans penis; it gives passage to the spermatic fluid as well as urine.

Urethra swollen and itchy. Monistat cream not working! Help? OTC remedies?????

Urethra swollen and itchy. Monistat cream not working! Help? OTC remedies?????

Maybe not yeast: This may or may not be a yeast infection. If yeasts, some are resistant to Monistat and other "azole" drugs. Hard to recommend an OTC remedy when the cause isn't known. Best to see a doctor, but you could try vaginal boric acid capsules, which are available OTC and can help some yeast infections. For sure see a doctor if boric acid doesn't help. Good luck!

Penile discharge: A penile discharge is never normal. Seek immediate medical attention at doctor/ urgent care/ ER. Infections can damage the epididymis and other scrotal structures and are infections and if not treated can become systemic.

Several things: Problems like these can only be correctly handled by your doctor in person. He/she needs to listen to you, perform an examination and possibly run labs or other tests. That's the only way he/she can find out what's going on and what to do about it.

Unprotected oral from high risk female. Itchy urethra, took 1week levo, then 1week denvar, now im taking itraconazol. Itchy urethra still present. Help?

Unprotected oral from high risk female. Itchy urethra, took 1week levo, then 1week denvar, now im taking itraconazol. Itchy urethra still present. Help?

Stop all treatment: Oral sex is safe sex -- not completely risk free, but low risk for all STDs and zero for several. Any infection from that exposure that could have caused urethral itching would have been cured by one or more of the antibiotics you took. Probably this symptoms is psychological, resulting from anxiety over a sexual decision you regret. You have no infection. See a doctor if still concerned.

Unreal urethra discomfort/itchy for 1month+ after unprotected oral with high risk female (CSW). Diagnosed CPPS, is this possible? Recommendations? Plz!

Unreal urethra discomfort/itchy for 1month+ after unprotected oral with high risk female (CSW). Diagnosed CPPS, is this possible? Recommendations? Plz!

Possible: But the exact cause of CPPS is unknown, and it does NOT appear to be due to infection. Stress plays a big role in CPPS, and other potential causes/infections need to be ruled out before treatment can begin. I would recommend consulting a urologist if you haven't already. Always use protection - always! You are also increasing your odds of an STD by using a CSW AND enabling human trafficking.

Can oxybutin cause urethra burning and vaginal dryness? I notice since I started taking it is hurt with sexual activity as well. Feel very dry/itchy.

Can oxybutin cause urethra burning and vaginal dryness? I notice since I started taking it is hurt with sexual activity as well. Feel very dry/itchy.

Let your dr know: Dryness of the mouth is common with oxybutin, and you don't want to get dehydrated. If your mucous membranes are dry, and you are complaining of itching, it may be leading to your symptoms of vaginal dryness too, but this can't be confirmed without seeing your doctor first. S/he may need to adjust the dose, or switch to something else altogether. Do hydrate well while taking it.

Hello. I've experience recently a white tiny bump around the urethra. Its itchy and it does not hurt when I pee. Could it be a skene gland cyst?

Hello. I've experience recently a white tiny bump around the urethra. Its itchy and it does not hurt when I pee. Could it be a skene gland cyst?

Maybe-Check this out: Skene duct cysts develop next to the distal urethra, sometimes causing perineal discharge, dyspareunia, urinary obstruction, or abscess formation. So it's possible. You should have an exam by your gynecologist to be on the safe side.

How to tell between UTI and CPPS? Antibiotics (levo/denvar/itraconazol) not fixing urethra discomfort (itchy/burn). Dr says its CPPS. Will it cure? Help

Here are some...: UTI denotes inflammatory change of urinary tract caused by infective agents, chiefly bacteria, and CPPS is designed to include the symptom-complex affecting genital-urinary organs residing in pelvic cavity, which is likely caused by some irritation to regional muscles, joints, & nerves, not by infective origan. For detail, need comprehensive evaluation & counseling... Best wish...
