All right, about a month ago my penis started to itch. I figured it was just an allergic reaction or dry skin or something. But, after a month I figured something was definitely going on. I started researching on the internet and all fingers point to Chlamydia or Gonorrhea. I called a clinic and they cant get me in until monday. and its thursday. well, i sprayed peroxide into my urethra and ALL of the symptoms cleared up. Hopefully, the peroxide got rid of everything without doing any damage.
Peroxide will not cure anything; definitely not Chlamydia or gonorrhea, so keep that appointment on Monday if you think your sexual history and symptoms justify it. There is an easy urine test that can give you the correct answer. Expect a lecture about using condoms.
The penis is covered by skin, and there are about a hundred reasons for itching...from allergy to your laundry detergent/dryer softeners or soap, to eczema or a fungal infection.
You cannot accurately diagnose yourself over the Internet, so get a medical professional invovled.
about two weeks ago my penis started to itch. I thought it was the new underwear but i was wrong, I have not had sex prior to it happening. I wake up from sleeping and my penis itches, I i pee and it itches. I have cleaned it everytime but it still itches. any answers would b appreciated.
Your penis may be itching simply because you have dry skin down there. It is a common problem and nothing to freak out about. Buy yourself some penis health creme (one containing Vitamin A, E and some shea butter is nice too) and use it every day. Your itch should be gone in a few days. Get tested regularly for STI's regardless though. It is the smart and responsible thing to do. Cheers!
That wouldn't clear up an STI, so it's a good idea to get it
checked. For common penile itching unrelated to STIs, using a superior penis health
cream (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) with natural moisturizers
can help to deal with the itchiness.
