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. ...Read more

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! ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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 origin.

Trichomonas tenax be transmited via oral sex? CSW used her teeth on my urethra, it was rough. Symptoms: itchy/discomfort urethra. It was irritated too

Trichomonas tenax be transmited via oral sex? CSW used her teeth on my urethra, it was rough. Symptoms: itchy/discomfort urethra. It was irritated too

No risk for trich: T. tenax is normal in the mouth but is not known to cause genital infection. Oral sex probably never transmits trichomonas of any kind. Urethral irritation, especially with penile discharge, could be gonorrhea or nongonococcal urethritis from the oral sex event described. But not trichomonas. See a doctor if your symptoms continue or you otherwise remain concerned. ...Read more

I tested negative for sti, but still have an itchy urethra and painless rashes on my penile?

Contact allergy: Good you've tested negative for a sexually transmitted disease (STD), but given you still have a problem, the doctors should seek out the cause. I wonder if you might have a contact allergy - perhaps to a new detergent, latex condoms or some other chemical or compound. If you show the rashes to a doctor, you hopefully can get some answers and then a plan to take care of the problem. ...Read more

3 wks ago yeast infectn cured, urethra till introitus now looks bumpy, whiteish. Got a small red bump on clitoral hood itchy painful to touch. Normal?

Persisting "yeast": Was the yeast diagnosis certain? How severe was it? Initial genital herpes can cause yeast-like symptoms and could also cause a new painful genital area red bump 3 weeks later. Check it out with your doctor, especially if your apparent yeast infection had open sores, tender swelling in the groin, or headache or fever. ...Read more
