Wife Had A Colon Check Recently And Now Has Itching And Frequent Urnation
I have had a red and tender penis for over a year now. Started while in a relationship with an ex-girlfriend. Before going out with my current wife a month after my break up, I had a full STI panel (except for herpes). My GP examined me and found no signs
For sure no STD: Since you have been professionally examined and no abnormality was found, I have to believe that nothing is wrong -- i.e. that your impression that your penis is "red and tender" is mistaken. Maybe it's primarily psychological. But if you are convinced there is definitely redness and tenderness, get a second opinion from a dermagolotist. In any case, no STD causes such symptoms. Good luck! ...Read more

The fact that preceding this you had constipation raises the question of irritable bowel syndrome. See your doctor for tests ...Read more
