I used to live with my girlfriend . We had several times

Resolved Question:

I used to live with my girlfriend . We had sex several times a day . Sometimes 2-3 times a day . The last we had sex my penis hurt during the sexual intercourse but I didn't stop until I cum . Then I noticed I have small tiny spots on my penis head and redness , it was itchy from time to time . I stopped having sex for 12 days because I thought it is just a friction during this time I washed my penis with warm water and salt. The red spots and the redness disappeared . But last night when I had sex again my penis hurt a lot that I didn't able to go forward and backwards during sexual intercourse . So I wonder what could it be? Is it kind of std ? I don't have other symptoms only pain during sex. I appreciate your help

Dr. Phil, MD :

Yes, is the sex unprotected?

Customer: Yes right
Dr. Phil, MD :

Ok.

Dr. Phil, MD :

This could be an STD Julio

Dr. Phil, MD :

You need tested for this

Dr. Phil, MD :

The other possibility is balanitis

Dr. Phil, MD :

This is an infection of the penis

Dr. Phil, MD :

That would need antibiotics

Dr. Phil, MD :

You absolutely need to see a doctor and get tested though Julio

Customer: I don't have symptoms
Dr. Phil, MD :

Yes, you do. You have pain with rubbing

Customer: I don't have symptoms
Dr. Phil, MD :

You have pain Julio

Dr. Phil, MD :

That is a symptom

Customer: Only pain during sex
Dr. Phil, MD :

I know. That counts

Dr. Phil, MD :

I don't think it is an STD

Dr. Phil, MD :

I think it is balanitis, but you need tested

Customer: What is balanitis ?
Dr. Phil, MD :

Balanitis is an infection of the penis

Customer: What are the symptoms ?
Dr. Phil, MD :

pain, redness, irritation

Customer: I don't have none of these after I washed with warm water and salt
Dr. Phil, MD :

If it is a mild case it can come with alot of irritation only as in sex

Dr. Phil, MD :

So probably mild but I also think you need tested for STDs

Customer: So should I start taking antibiotic ?
Dr. Phil, MD :

you could try a cream like an antibiotic cream

Customer: Not pills?
Dr. Phil, MD :

No, I would see a doctor before that

Dr. Phil, MD :

usually antibiotic cream works for balanitis

Customer: What kind of tests needed? Urine test or blood rest?
Dr. Phil, MD :

I would get a urine test for gonorrhea and chlamydia

Dr. Phil, MD :

Also syphilis and HIV

Dr. Phil, MD :

If that is normal, it's balanitis and you can take antibiotics

Customer: I can take the tests anytime during the day , or should I not eat anything from the morning ?
Dr. Phil, MD :

nope, any time

Customer: If I wash with salt and water will help ease the inflammation ?
Dr. Phil, MD :

I would avoid that.

Dr. Phil, MD :

Just let it be and apply some antibiotic cream

Customer: Because I'm busy recently . Maybe I don't have time to go hospital . What the name of the antibiotic cream u suggest?
Dr. Phil, MD :

neosporin

Dr. Phil, MD :

you definitely should see a doctor though okay Julio?

Customer: If left untreated what will happen? Will it heal by itself ?
Dr. Phil, MD :

It might.

Dr. Phil, MD :

the STDs won't if it is an STD

Dr. Phil, MD :

balanitis might heal though

Customer: What are the common std symptoms ?
Dr. Phil, MD :

pain, irritation, burning with urination, fever, chills

Dr. Phil, MD :

to name a few
