Itchy Penis With Swelling?
Excuse me doctor, I want to ask, last Tuesday at 7 pm I was studying on my stomach. but suddenly my penis is very itchy plus senut with a relatively short time. but a few minutes later, my left side of the penis swelled very large plus itching. Then I read an article that my incident was caused by a bite from a mite (bed bug). but until now the itching has not stopped plus the head of my left penis looks red line. Is it true that I was bitten by a mite? thank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Itchy penis followed by swelling, can be caused by several things, including mite or insect bites, bacterial, fungal or viral infections, and inflammatory processes. If caused by mites, the risk factors that increase the likelihood of this happening are lack of hygiene in the pubic area and not shaving pubic hair.
However, to avoid misunderstandings, and so that you can also get treatment immediately, you should immediately get your condition checked by a dermatologist and venereal specialist. In the meantime, try not to scratch too hard, and try shaving your pubic hair if it hasn't been shaved. I hope you and your family are always healthy.
That's all, hope it helps.
