This happens: Nobody knows why, but some guys get this and it lasts for some time. I can't address the cause of the burning pain beyond suggesting that these do a little bit of damage to the super-delicate urethral mucosa. I trust you have no symptom to suggest prostatitis.

Hi,I am getting a small quantity(1 ml in whole day) of light yellow,mildly thick (no lumps,no foul odor) immediately after my mentrual periods.
I noticed a small indentation on my lower eyelid a few months ago and now when I pull the lid down there is a yellow patch should I be worried ?
The top of my eyelids have been noticeably yellow the last few days kind of like a late bruise but I just noticed it! Is it something to worry about?
Not likely: If that is the only part of your skin that is yellowed, I would wonder if you had a bruise on your scalp/forehead area in the last 2 weeks that has allowed some late discoloration to reach your eyelids. Are you using eye shadow that is a new product for you that may leave a discoloration after removal? If the whites of your eyes of other areas become yellow, see a doctor about liver problems. ...Read more
