Hi there, Im getting quiet itchy and pain (like someone grabbing

This answer was rated:

Hi there, I'm getting quiet itchy and pain (like someone grabbing my balls). I had protected sex with girlfriend over a yr, However the condom broke... I'm getting a little worried so I contacted you. I have had sti/sdi checks before (all clear no problems/issues) but wondering could you offer advice and make a judgement with your expertise. I can send pictures. It's a little red around the top of the penis head, and little dark spots ( only a few can you seen )

I am Dr Ken and I will be helping you today.

Are there symptoms like penile discharge/ enlarged nodes at the inguinal region or rash over the penis?

As far as I'm aware I don't believe there is any pe nike discharge. There would be red rash after the penis opening .. Would a picture help?
Please upload a picture.

Thank you for the images. I have gone through three images uploaded by you.

The tiny red dots seen at the glans seem to worry you. I do understand this.

BUT - These do not make me think of any sexually transmitted disease. These are likely small blood vessels on the glans {seen as dot - due to end-on nature}. Other possibility is allergy/ mild infection {not sexually transmitted though}. STD would present with yellow, white or red penile discharge/ enlarged nodes at the inguinal region or rash. None of these are seen with you. Negative STD panel also confirms that you do not have any of those.

Next step - Anti-inflammatory medicine {Ibuprofen} should reduce inflammation if any. I do not see a need of antibiotic course. Have balanced diet and adequate fluid. Few signs should prompt medical evaluation - discharge/ severe redness/ pain or lumps at the inguinal region.

Please do not worry.

I didn't get the medication ... But still itchy .. Would caned set cream be as good as you suggested ? Lll us getting some white stuff under Neath penis ... Is this normal and how to reduce it?
Cream would sooth the region for sure. You may try Benadryl - It should help get rid of allergy if any. White discharge {collection} may be smegma. This is normal.

Finlally I have pain in testicles anything I could do ... Food that may help or ?
Ibuprofen should help. If pain is severe I would get urine analysis {to look for urine infection} and ultrasound for testis.

I'm getting so internal pain in whole private area can't really say where ... Would I be best to go to doctor ? I'm gonna get Ibuprofen and canesten cream but would that help on and off pain? If I touch testes the pain increases .. Still very itchy as well !?
Try Ibuprofen. It should help get relief from pain. If pain is unbearable than get it evaluated.

Hi ken, I took those tablets for about 3/4 days the pain the testis have gone but little concerned with penis tip ... Still itchy ... Applied the cream for about 1/2 days only ... How would I identify discharge unsure if I'm getting some? Furthermore I get a little pain sharp for a few seconds in penis region ..
Discharge may be white/ yellow or red colored. It can be seen at the start of pee or when when you stop to pee.
