Customer:

he is 16, the pain in in in his grion and penis when he moves ! he is having trouble peeing ! this has only just become a problem in the last couple of hours.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

as a general rule, anyone who has pain when peeing should bee seen and have a urine test done.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

The most common cause of such symptoms is a urine infection.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

It could be a sexually transmitted infection like chlamydia or gonorrhea if he is sexually active.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So he will most likely require an antibiotic.

Customer:

ok, is there anything he can take to reduce the pain, until we can get him to a doctor

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Yes he can take something like over-the-counter ibuprofen for the pain. But if he cannot get to the doctor early enough I would recommend taking him to the emergency.

Customer:

ok, thanks for your help
