Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

it sounds like you have an infection of your forskin.

Dr. David :

which is called posthitis

Dr. David :

and possible infection of the glands penis which is called balanitis

Dr. David :

you need to take a break from sex and masturbation since sex and masturbation can cause more irritation and inflammation

Dr. David :

and you need to wash with a gentle soap like Dove on a daily basis.

Dr. David :

you might even need a course of antibiotics if the infection is bad.

Dr. David :

does she have a vaginal fungal or bacterial infection?

Customer: No she's absolutely fine
Customer: i am stressed with lots of worries in my work life
Dr. David :

I see.

Dr. David :

stress doesn't help you heal

Customer: I've got kidney stones as well
Dr. David :

kidney stones would not affect your foreskin

Dr. David :

you really need to see a doctor to see if you need antibiotics for this infection.

Dr. David :

you could have a bladder infection as well.

Dr. David :

so it is best to see a doctor

Customer: Could this be Candida's ? The skin is really red & burning around the foreskin and under the shaft
Customer: Couple of days ago I wanted to urinate all the time after a drink
Dr. David :

you have already tried Caneston which has 1% clotrimazole in it which is a good antifungal

Dr. David :

if it was a fungal infection, caneston would have helped already.

Dr. David :

most likely not fungal infection.

Customer: my prostrate has been checked and that's fine too
Dr. David :

that is good.

Dr. David :

but prostate problems would not affect the foreskin and head of the penis.

Customer: What could this be ? Please help
Dr. David :

it could be a bacterial infection of the foreskin.

Dr. David :

you might need a course of antibiotics.

Dr. David :

and to abstain from sex and masturbation for a week or two.

Customer: Nothing serious
Dr. David :

no, it doesn't sound like an STD o

Dr. David :

or sexually transmitted disease.

Customer: I thought it was because of the burning feeling and was red, but as I've said I've been tested and all ok.
Customer: Could this be a UTI ? Been reading about that.
Dr. David :

could be a UTI

Dr. David :

or an infection of the foreskin.

Dr. David :

or a bacterial infection of the glands penis.

Customer: problem is that you read things and worry even more :-(
Customer: this helps talking to you though. Thanks

forgot to mention yesterday that i need to wee all the time

Expert:  Dr. David replied 3 years ago.
excessive anxiety can cause a nervous bladder and cause you to urinate frequently.

once you get your anxiety under better control the urination issue can get better
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

It is worry me, i've got a sore throat as well & waking up in sweets worrying about this. Today the pain has eased a bit but i cant deny it is worring me. I google answers which doesnt help i think.


 

Expert:  Dr. David replied 3 years ago.
googling only worsen your anxiety.

it sounds like your anxiety is out of control.

you need to see a doctor right away about your excessive anxiety and get some therapy for your excessive anxiety.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I just want my life back, feel healthy & be with my girlfriend.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 3 years ago.
no, there are no over the counter medications to treat excessive anxiety.

you have to see a doctor about it.

you need prescription medications to help with this.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

My heath has suffered since my divorce, had major financial issues & ex wife took me to court when i nearly lost everything. I am depressed, i cry for the simpliest thing (mainly cos i miss my children) but i know i was very very close to a breakdown My head has always been strong, so this is putting me outside of my box.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 3 years ago.
you definitely need to see a doctor

and get started on medication, most likely an SSRI antidepressant medication which can help your depression and also help your anixety symptoms.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I will. Thank you.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 3 years ago.
