I have been to a doctor and have been diagnosed with reactive arthritis due to a sexual encounter. I have taken the antibiotics and used the topical creams but I am left with the constant burning through the inside of my penis. Please , if there is any way to get rid of the burning sensation I would like to know ASAP. In all the research, the burning seems to be on the outside. Is there anyone else besides me that has had this symptom? Asprin/tylenol does not help.
I will be totally honest and tell you I don't know anything about the condition or that much about the male anatomy, but have you been tested for a UTI? There is also a somewhat rare condition for men called interstitial cystitis. It is more common in women, and even then it is not common. What you are describing sounds like both of them to me. I do hope others will answer who have more information on this than I do. Take care, TC
As a male my first experience with gonorrhea touched off a more serious episode of Reiter's Syndrome. After reading what another person said about interstitial infections, I would also consider the possibility that your entire urethral tract may be telling you something; e.g., kidney stones, problems with your bladder or prostate gland, etc. Remember that REFERENTIAL pain plays a role; i.e., pain from one part of your body radiates to nearby locations so you can't specifically identify the problem yourself. Find a provider who can solve your problem before the problem "solves" you!!!
