Question: Urethra Inflammation with out infection


 Grey_Beard - Mon Dec 14, 2009 6:45 pm

Hi Doctor,

I am a 30 year old single male. For the past 2-3 weeks I am having inflammation inside my penis (feel it along the urethra). Last week, I visited a urologist and he ran a urine test and it turned out that I don't have any infection. He asked me to keep the area dry and that is it. No Medication! Initially it was while and few mins after urinating but now I am feeling it all the time. The inflammation increases when I urinate and subsides to some extent few mins after that. I feel the frequent urge to urinate. I don't have any other symptoms. Please help.

Thanks
Nick

User avatar Hello,Your sexual history may give some clues.NGU ie non gonococcal urethritis can present like this with very few symptoms.Caused by other than gonococci it can present with just a mild inflammation.Chlamydia is the commonest and can infect with out much symptom from either partner.If you have been sexually active other than a monogamouus relationship best to run test for this.Treatment with single dose antibiotics are given.In syndromic management the dose is given to both partners with out tests.Best wishes.
