I want to ask, after I had intercourse during my period, then after intercourse my penis was itching and there was swelling above the line near the line, why, please give a solution
Hello Andri Alfarizi, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com
Swelling and itching in the neck area of the penis may be caused by a condition known as balanitis. Balanitis is inflammation of the head of the penis to the foreskin. Balanitis is more common in men who are not circumcised or circumcised, but it can also occur in men who have been circumcised. Symptoms that can be found include:
Swelling and redness on the head of the penis to the foreskin Itching and pain in the area of the head of the penis The foreskin becomes tight around the head of the penis Sometimes it can also be accompanied by pain during urination
Balanitis can be caused by a variety of conditions, some of which are:
Irritation of the penis, which can occur due to: lack of cleanliness of the penis cleaning the penis too hard or too often residual soap that has not been cleaned in the foreskin or in the neck area of the penis after bathing cleaning the penis using soap that is too harsh (such as antiseptic soap) and perfumed using certain creams, deodorants, or fragrances on the penis Sexually transmitted infections such as syphilis, trichomonas, gonorrhea, chlamydia, herpes Infections that are not sexually transmitted infections such as infections of the normal flora of the skin, candida yeast infections Allergy to certain drugs Certain disease conditions such as diabetes, morbid obesity, heart disorders, liver disorders, kidney disorders and so on
Apart from balanitis, the following are some other conditions that can cause swelling of the head of the penis:
An injury to the penis (eg due to an accident, excessive sexual intercourse or masturbation) Dermatitis in the penile area Peyronie's disease (there is connective tissue on the shaft of the penis that causes the penis to bend) Penile cancer
To be able to determine the cause of the swelling in the neck of the penis that you are experiencing, it is necessary to directly examine the condition of your penis. Therefore, it is better for you to consult a general practitioner or urologist directly. The doctor can also dig deeper into other symptoms that accompany swelling of your penis, as well as perform additional investigations such as urinalysis or penile fluid examination if there is abnormal discharge from the penis.
Some things you can do before going to the doctor include:
Keep the penis clean by washing the penis every time you shower Clean the penis with a mild, unscented soap, making sure you rinse off the soap thoroughly Don't use perfume, deodorant, or apply any cream on the penis You can also clean the penis while soaking in warm water to help reduce swelling.
That's all the information from me, I hope you answer
