Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

how long has this been going on?

Dr. David :

burning of your urethra can be from a bladder infection

Dr. David :

or urethritis or passing a small bladder or kidney stone.

Dr. David :

burning of the anal passage can be from eating spicy foods or from colitis or from anal fissures or hemorrhoids.

Dr. David :

do you have a doctor who can check your urine for bladder infections?

Dr. David :

do you have a history of hemorrhoids?

have you eaten spicy foods recently?

Customer: No

Dr. David :

Dr. David :

have you been sexually active recently without protection?

Dr. David :

are you having any penile discharge?

Customer: Had sex about two weeks ago and was with condom and the lady is fine
Customer: No discharge
Dr. David :

condom would have protected you against HIV and bacterial STDs.

Dr. David :

that is good no discharge.

Dr. David :

I would get your urine checked for possible urinary tract infection

Customer: Would that affect my anal passage
Customer: You there
Dr. David :

anal passage would be something else

Dr. David :

like an inflamed hemorrhoid

Dr. David :

or anal fissure

Customer: They feel linked
Dr. David :

STDs don't tend to cause inflamed anal passage.

Customer: it started with just my uretha but now my anal passage burns
Customer: But no when I pass urine
Customer: Not
Customer: Like I say only symptoms I have
Dr. David :

I see.

Dr. David :

I don't think they are linked.

Customer: Would I have other symptoms if it was an std
Dr. David :

there are many types of STDs.

Dr. David :

and different STDs cause different symptoms

Dr. David :

usually for men penile discharge and burning

Dr. David :

not anal burning.

Customer: I have penile burning but not on passing urine and my scrotem feels hot too
Dr. David :

do you have excessive anxiety before?

Dr. David :

or panic attacks?

Customer: What you mean before
Dr. David :

excessive anxiety can cause nervous bladder symptoms and make you feel like you have burning down there if you are worried about an STD.

do you have a history of excessive anxiety symptoms?

you should talk to your doctor about it.
