Urinary Disorders

Itchy feeling at tip of my penis.

03/10/2006

Question:

I was wondering I had sex with my girlfriend without a condom. She said the doctor told her she had irritation in her vagina. I know have a slight irritation Near the penis opening. Is this due to the fact we didn`t use condoms. Or is something i`m eating or wearing causing this. Like maybe the soap I use. Can the penis be flushed out with something to remove the bacteria?

Answer:

This is likely a local irritation and of no significance.  If the area doesn't resolve on it's own (which I suspect it will) I would consult with your primary care physician.
