What Causes Penile Discharge?
This is one of the most common STDs around. It always manifests as white/yellow/green discharge from the penis, and painful urination. Unlike men, only 10-20% of women with gonorrhoea have an abnormal discharge. It is curable with Ayurvedic Medication.
If left untreated for a period of time, it may lead to infertility. It may also enter the bloodstream and cause problems to the skin and joints.
Non-specific urethritis (NSU)
Men aged between 20 and 35 years are most commonly affected. Several different organisms can cause NSU:
• Chlamydia trachomatis
• Mycoplasma genitalium
• Ureaplasma urealyticum
• Trichomonas vaginalis
• Herpes simplex (rare)
These names may sound very complicated but a full STD screening would be able to detect these organisms and pinpoint the cause of the penile discharge. However, no cause can be found sometimes.
Other causes of penis discharge
Penis discharge can also be caused by the following:
• Allergic reactions
(inflammation of the foreskin) • Chemical irritation caused by soaps, spermicides, or bath products
• Priapism (sustained erection that is painful)
• Penile cancer
• Urinary tract infections
Complications of Penis Discharge
• Difficulty with or inability to retract the foreskin
• Scarring and narrowing of the opening of the penis
• Scarring of the penis
• Spread of infection
Get checked out by a doctor, however, if:
• your penis is red or irritated
• you have a discharge that is oozing, discolored, or foul smelling
• you have any discharge that occurs without sexual activity
This discharge could be the sign of an STD, allergic reaction, or UTI, and will need medical treatment.
